Coopworth is a Longwool breed created by crossbreeding Romney and Border Leicester sheep. The breed standard focuses on production as opposed to the way the sheep looks (👏👏👏), so some Coopworth look more like Romney and some have the clean head and roman noses of Border Leicester. Creamy white, strong fiber with an opalescence that dyes beautifully.
Farm source: hand selected fleeces from Over the Grass Farm in The Plains, Virginia. The flock was dispersed. We currently don't have a source of Coopworth fleece. Know anyone raising them in the Chesapeake Fibershed?
