A breed from the Welsh border area of Britain, Clun Forest is a rare, heritage breed in the US. Raised for meat and valued for their ability to grow well on pasture alone, they also grow a high quality, Down-type wool that has robust crimp and elasticity. Clun fleece is fairly fine, with a short staple. Light and lofty, it is machine washable without shrinkage.
