Romney sheep are a versatile breed, used for both wool and meat. They are well suited to damp and harsh climates, and have become popular all around the world.
New Zealand breed is a medium wool farmed mainly in the South Island of New Zealand. It is a sturdy wool, especially good for felting.
My skeins are wound on a full 2-yard niddy-noddy. If you don’t have a large swift, let me know. Spun in a smoke-free, pet-friendly home.
