Last week, Boeren van Nederweert asked the following question:
How many meters of yarn is in this ball?
Most of the wool used for garment production comes from merino sheep. Merino is the oldest and most common breed of sheep. Merino sheep grow 10 times more hair per square centimeter than the average sheep and produce up to 5 kg of wool per year. In the Netherlands, sheep are raised mainly for meat or grazing. Dutch goats’ wool is thick and less suitable for wool production. Merino sheep are bred mainly in New Zealand and Australia.
