Rare Wools from Rare Sheep

Rare Wools from Rare Sheep
Part 1: A Focused Tour of Breeds and Fiber
by Deborah Robson
(Published in the Winter 1998 issue of Spin•Off on pages 54-60)

Our original plan for this issue was to present a comprehensive overview of rare and endangered sheep breeds, as seen from the spinner’s perspective. What we have space for is only an extremely abbreviated overview. We’ve had to concentrate on the information that people who want to participate in the Save the Sheep project most need to know in order to get started: which breeds are classified as rare or endangered, along with brief notes on the types of fleece they may provide.
