The Romney is an English breed with fine, long lustrous wool. They have excellent wool for spinning. They are quiet, friendly sheep and good mothers. The wool is washed before picking and carding and then put into spools for easy spinning. Thr Romney breed is from the Romney Marsh area of England. It is a low marshy reclaimed area and the sheep have hooves less prone to wet weather diseases. The fleece of the Romney does not tend to part along their backs and they do well in wet weather, such as Oregon. The Wensleydale is from England and has a very heavy and lustrous fleece. The Wensleydales were first imported to the U.S. in 1999.
