Want to breed the wool off your sheep?
Wool shedding is just another trait that you can add or take away from your ewes ---depending on your ewe and how much wool she has this process can take between 1 and 3 crosses to achieve
Many ewes including the Hill breeds like the Shetlands, Blackface, Cheviots and Welsh ewes will produce shedding lambs on the first cross with an Exlana ram
Mules & Lleyns can take two generations to get to a full shedding ewe
If you start with a Romney or a Dorset it may take a little longer
We record shedding speed and ability in our stud flocks and can advise you on which ram lines to use if you want to breed the wool off your home flock
