Herdwicks

Herdwicks

From Cumbria. They were decimated in 2001 by the foot and mouth outbreak. They have a double layer of wool, the longer, coarser outer layer acts like a thatch, shedding water before it can penetrate, the inner, softer layer provides the insulation. This unique fleece enables the breed to thrive in the extreme cold and wet conditions of the North West.
