Border Leicester SheepBorder Leicester Sheep This breed produces a longer loin and leaner meat than most other sheep of its size. The wool of the Border Leicester falls in long, shining locks that are popular with hand spinners.
Cheviot SheepCheviot Sheep often spend their entire lives in pastures, rarely if ever seeing the inside of a barn or shed, in summer and winter. Cheviots produce generous fleeces of white wool that is notable for its fineness, crimp, and length of staple.
