Polwarth Sheep

After crossbreeding Merino and Lincoln sheep a new breed was established in 1880 in Australia. The new breed was called Polwarth and is 3/4 Merino and 1/4 Lincoln. As this breed adapt very well to a variety of climatic conditions and is still capable of retaining the dual-purpose characteristics the door was open for exporting the Polwarth to other countries like New Zealand or continents (South America).
In South America (Argentinia, Brazil, Falkland Islands, Uruguay) you will find the Polwarth sheep under the name "Ideals". Polwarth sheep produce a very fine wool with a micron count of 23 and a staple length of up to 6 inches. A perfect balance of microns and length of fiber.
