The Black Welsh Mountain sheep are the only completely black breed found in Britain. They are a small dual-purposed breed, producing mild flavored mutton and dense, durable fleece. Ewes average a weight of 11 lbs while rams can weigh between 132-143 lbs. These are short animals that only grow up to 20 or 30 inches.
Black Welsh Mountain ewes are polled and rams have striking horns. Their wool is a favorite since it yields high quality spinning fleeces and wool products that can be a dark-black or a less common reddish-black color. Ewes of the breed are very hardy and do not need assistance while birthing. The breed is also known to be disease resistant, good mothering, feed efficient and adaptable.
The status of the breed is threatened only existing in small flocks in the U.S., Canada, England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland.
