What our Woolfarm is all about
De Dutch Merino is, na 15 jaar gerichte fokkerij en selectie, inmiddels een mooi en gebruiksvriendelijk dier. Dubbeldoel, superfijne wol (tussen de 16 en 20 micron) en goede vleesdier eigenschappen. De ooien gaan in juli / augustus bij diverse rammen. We werken daarnaast ook met KI en hebben hiervoor prachtige Australische bloedlijnen in ‘het vat’.
We love our animals and our land. Our story is about caring for the environment and continuous improvement of animal welfare because happy sheep produce the best wool in the world! Through careful and non intensive farming methods, each animal is treated as an individual with no flock wide use of dewormer or antibiotics.
Of all our individual animals we know the genetype which is important for our live stock export to other Eu countries. All Sires are genetype Arr/Arr.
Meanwhile we have succesfully exported merino’s to Denmark, Belgium, England and Scotland.
The Dutch Merino is a perfect dual purpose animal that fits well in our country, but also has the ability to adapt well to different climates.
We currently focus to increase wool staple length (to be able to shear twice each year). Our fleeces are processed in Italy and is solled in our shop as knitting wool but we also have designer Nathalie Comans, Ministry of Knits, produce costom fits knits! Check our webshop for possibilitys
Our ‘Sires are selected for their fleece, staple length a well defined bold crimp, plain body and open faces. Dutch merino is a commercial stud producing quality Superfine Merino sheep for its own use and also for export to other EU countries.
The farm is situated in the South West of The Netherlands in the region Dutch Flanders. Visitors with a commercial interest in Superfine Merino are welcome! If you are interested in the posibilities for import/export please contact us by e-mail.
We are certified free of Meadi Visna and all of our sires are Arr/Arr.
