More about Romney Sheep

Fun Facts about Romney Sheep

  1. Wool from Romney sheep is desired by hand spinners due to its lustrous fleece which hangs in separate locks for easy cleaning and wool preparation, making it ideal for purposes from sweaters to rugs.
  2. The low grease content of Romney wool makes the weight loss of washed fleeces minimal.
  3. Originally from the marshy area of Kent, along the windswept south coast of England, where climate and geography led to development of a breed resistant to foot rot and fleeces that remain healthy in harsh weather.
  4. The first Romneys were imported to North America in 1904 by William Riddel of Oregon.
