    Montadale is a modern US breed developed in the 1930's in the mid-west from Cheviot rams with Columbia ewes. These sheep are raised for both meat and their exceptionally white wool which is in the "medium" range. Medium is right in the middle of all the types of wool and makes an excellent knitting yarn that is fairly soft and yet still fairly strong. Romney is a longwool breed originally from the RomneyMarsh area of southeast England. on the softer end of the Longwool spectrum, it still has excellent strength, shine and drape. The fleece for our yarn comes from both white and natural colored sheep.
