This is one of the breeds with a wider variety from fleece to fleece. The wool is primitive and on the coarser side, with the softer fleeces suitable for sturdy sweaters and mittens, but the majority of this breed is better for textiles requiring something heftier. It’s great for rug warps, floor pillows, and bags that need to take a beating. White Faced Woodland is Native to the Pennines, like the slightly more famous Blackfaced Mountain breeds. Blackfaced Linton Mountain sheep (similar to Scottish Blackface) were bred with a little Cheviot and a bit of Merino, leaving this breed with its characteristic white face, and a stockier build than its blackfaced cousins. Today it is mostly raised for meat and for crossbreeding.
