Corriedale was developed by crossing some Lincoln Long Wool Sheep with perhaps some Leicester and Merinos.  This produced Corriedale which is a dual-purpose sheep that would preform well in the intermediate grassland areas of New Zealand and Australia. Corriedale wool is reliable and multipurpose wool fiber.  It can be a pleasure to spin, knit, or weave. it is medium-soft.  It has a nice long staple with some luster.  The Crimp is well-defined. This means it has a lot of loft and elasticity once it has been spun into yarn. It is a resilient fiber with enough character to be interesting. It is a flat tip lock with crimp clearly defined along the full length of the fiber.
