Southdown English Babydoll Sheep are a recovering heritage breed. Our ewe and ram at Selah Springs Farm are both registered and are raised for their fiber. Babydoll wools is one of the finest wools of all the British breeds. It is short (about 2 to 3 inches) and springy, soft and bouncy. The mircron count typically ranges from 23 to 29 which means many people can wear it comfortably next to the skin. Since it has more barbs per inch than other wool types, it is also ideal to blend with angora or other slick fibers. Babydoll wool is great for socks, mittens, hats, blankets, and sweaters.
