RARE BREEDS SUR­VIVAL TRUST

The Knitter - - Wool Producers -

This is a great re­source for gain­ing knowl­edge about which sheep breeds are on the watch­list. The watch­list tells you which breeds are crit­i­cal (less than 150 an­i­mals), en­dan­gered (152-350), vul­ner­a­ble (251-400), at risk (451-750), and mi­nor­ity (751-1500). Wool from at least 75% of the breeds on the cur­rent watch­list is avail­able as knit­ting yarns, ei­ther as sin­gle-breed yarn or in blends. www.rbst.org.uk 024 7669 6551
