I’m sure you all remember my friend Libby from Libby’s Yarn Barn. She has English Angora rabbits, alpacas and now, Cormo sheep. Libby’s farm is about 20-25 minutes from ours but has a lot more animals!
A cross between Merino and Corriedale sheep, Cormo is a fine wool like merino but area better suited for a humid area.
Cormo sheep are becoming one of the best wool-producing breeds in the sheep industry. They are considered an easy breed and are somewhat smaller than many breeds. Cormo are rugged animals, able to thrive in the harsh climate of eastern Montana, the humidity of the East Coast the wetness of the Northwest, and the heat of the Southwest.

I did snap a few more photos of the alpacas and the farm in general. It was a beautiful night to sit outside and watch the sunset. Checkout a previous blog and additional photos from Libby’s house here.
I even got a kiss from one of the alpacas! Follow Libby on Facebook here.
