Hello! I'm Llyn, your newbie spinning editor here at Bellaonline.

To get the conversation rolling in our forum, I'd like to propose a little game. This game will cover a topic near and dear to the hearts of spinners everywhere - Sheep! Let's see if we can put our heads together and come up with a full alphabet of breeds of sheep.

Here's how it works. I'll start it off with a breed of sheep beginning with the letter A and then someone will add a breed beginning with B, then C and so forth. Also, I think it would be great fun if everyone added just one little fact about the breed they name.

So - to start the ball rolling:

A = Awassi. This is a fat tail breed.

Hint: There is an excellent link on our Spinning site giving a listing of breed so sheep from A through Z.

And the Bergamasca is also found in Brazil and is classified as an Alpine lop-earred breed.

Anyone have a breed of sheep beginning with "C"?

Hi!I have been lurking a while. I was thinkinking of C breeds and thought of California Verigated Mutant. I have been thinking of making a roving purchase and wondered if anyone has experience with this breed? Other than color are there any advantages over Romeldale?

This is great! Two "C" breeds.

As to advantages of CVM over Romedale, they both look equal on paper. I haven't spun Romedale so am not qualified to comment further. If you have access to both types of fleece, why not sample each breed? If you do, please report back to us smile
