AY Honors/Sheep Breeds/Rambouillet
The Rambouillet is also known as the Rambouillet Merino or the French Merino. The fleece was valuable in the manufacture of cloth, at times being woven in a mixed fabric of cotton warp and wool weft, known as delaines.
The breed is well known for its wool, but also for its meat, both lamb and mutton. It has been described as a dual-purpose breed, with superior wool and near-mutton breed characteristics.
