Keeping sheep for fleece is a different way to raise sheep
Good fleece sheep breeding and husbandry will work well with regenerative grazing management, that will bring about better soils and food producing habitat.
Fleece sheep have to be selected for the quality of the fibre, that takes plenty of investment but it is well worth the effort
Management of the sheep for fleece means concentrating on the stock well being every day, not pushing for live weight gain.
It is also possible to keep a flock for years without so much lambing, therefore putting less stress on the ewes and the land.
