Charmoise sheep are characterized by their polled (hornless) nature, white faces, and white legs. They boast a deep body covered in a dense fleece of excellent quality. Known for their outstanding conformation, Charmoise sheep have short necks, well-muscled loins, and robust gigots (hindquarters). Despite their substantial build, they are light-boned, displaying agility and liveliness from birth.

On average, mature ewes of the Charmoise breed weigh between 65 to 70 kilograms, while rams typically range from 80 to 90 kilograms. This breed's combination of sturdy build, quality fleece, and agility makes it a valuable asset in various agricultural settings.
