About Zwartbles SheepAbout Zwartbles Sheep



Zwartbles sheep are from the Friesland region of the north Netherlands. They are primarily used for the production of sheep milk as well as lamb and mutton. They are known for being docile and friendly, and they are also prolific milkers and are excellent mothers.

Zwartble sheep have a distinct appearance; they have a black/brown fleece, a white blaze on the face, 2 - 4 white socks, and a white tail tip (which is traditionally left undocked). Both rams and ewes are polled. They are relatively large sheep: ewes weigh an average of 85 kg (187lb), and rams 100 kg (220 lb).

They have dense fleece that ranges from black to brown with sun bleached tips, some silvering maybe present in older animals. Their wool is medium to fine with excellent crimp and fiber length. They have a Bradford count of 54-56 and a micron count of 27 which makes them popular for spinning and felting.
