About the breed

The Merino is a group of breeds of domestic sheep characterised by very soft, fine wool.

The progenitors of the current Merino were the flocks raised in northeastern Africa in the twelfth century CE. Scholars believe the Berbers and other peoples from the region brought the sheep to the Spanish peninsula soon after, and for centuries the Merino breed was a closely guarded industrial secret -- those who tried to export the breed risked the death penalty!

In modern times, flocks of Merino sheep can be found around the world, and many cross-breeds have been developed. The merino is a highly adaptable sheep and an excellent forager. However, they must be shorn at least once a year, as their wool does not stop growing, and overgrowth can cause health issues.
