The California Variegated Mutant (CVM) originated from the all-white Romeldale breed which was developed by selective breeding between the Romney and the Rambouillet breeds. The CVM is a product of recessive color pattern genes. Overall patterns can vary but the typical standard pattern is the badger face with body wool colored cream, dark gray or silver and the belly, britch and neck a darker color. Ewes lamb easily, are good mothers and frequently produce twins. CVMs grow a soft, high-yielding, long-stapled uniform fleece.
