Corriedale & Romney
On our ranch we have Corriedale and registered Romney sheep. We currently have breeding stock available for sale. For more information on price, selection, or our flock in general, contact us.
Corriedales have a long life span and are hardy and evenly balanced all over the body. They are docile, easy-care mothers with high fertility, and adapt well to a wide range of climate conditions. Corriedales produce a thick-stapled, bulky fleece that is popular with spinners and can be used for a range of handspun garments, even soft enough for baby clothes. The Corriedale fleece is a bright white with good crimp, soft handle, and is very even.
The Romney is in general an open-faced breed with long wool that grows over the legs in full and may have either coloured or white fleece. We have both here at Disdero Ranch. Romneys produce a heavy fleece of medium coarseness. A healthy mature ram can yield at shearing upwards of 10 kg per year. The Romney fleece is highly valued for hand-spinning and felting and is often recommended to beginners.
Our raw wool is processed into a variety of fibre products, all available in our shop:
