    Corriedale Sheep
    Corriedale sheep are big and grow a LOT of wool. Their fleece is Medium wool, which is pretty descriptive: the diameter is medium, so fairly soft yet medium strong. The staple length is good: 3.5 to 6 inches. We wish more people in our area would raise this breed. We love the wool and it's very versatile.
