The wool is black, short, thick and firm to handle and it does not require dyeing.
It is most suitable for making-up into cloth which is durable, light and warm. When used with good quality white wool it blends into attractive checks and patterns. The USA, Canada and Japan have all shown special interest in the wool or home spinning and weaving. On several occasions the Breed has taken top honours in the Mountain and the Coloured Fleece classes at Shows.
Wool clip averages 1-2.5kg per fleece.
When cured, the rich, deep-pile black fleeced skins are in demand as floor rugs and chair backs.
