Teeswater & Bluefaced Leicester "crosses"
I love my Teeswater & Bluefaced Leicester "crosses".
The breeding must be done thoughtfully, keeping in mind the characteristics of the sheep & their fiber. I have found that my "crosses" work well for several reasons.
They tend to be hardy & healthy & good sized which means good market lambs. When crossing a fine with a long wool the benefits are that the resulting fiber:
is soft yet silky and
has luster, length & strength.
The " crosses". are strong & welcome members of my flock
