Merino

a fine-woolled sheep with unpigmented hooves used for fabric wool; males are usually horned (polled strains are available), females are polled. Originated in Spain, now many ethnic varieties. Classes of Australian merinos include Superfine (18 microns), Medium (20-22 microns), and Strongwoolled (23-25 microns). Other strains exist, e.g. Booroola, which has a much better fertility performance than average merinos.
