About Romanov SheepAbout Romanov Sheep



Romanov sheep originated in the Volga Valley, northeast ofrnMoscow. The name "Romanov" comes from the royal family of Russia. These sheeprnwere first noticed in the 18th century, and were later imported into Germanyrnand then France. In 1980, the Canadian government brought in 14 Romanov ewesrnand 4 rams for testing and put them into quarantine for 5 years. After that,rnsome were brought to the United States.

Romanov ewes tend to lamb by the litter. Most other sheeprngive birth to singles and twins, while the Romanov average about 2-5 lambs perrnlambing. When the lambs are born they are pure black but when they get olderrnthey turn gray. Romanov wool (a mixture of gray wool and black guard hair) isrnused for rugs, mats, and wall hangings.
