The Debouillet was developed in New Mexico in 1920 from Delaine Merino x Rambouillet crosses. Well adapted for southwest range sheep production, the Debouillet is medium-sized, white-faced with wool on the legs, hardy and can lamb unassisted under range conditions. They have a well-developed flocking instinct and produce a high-quality, long-stapled, fine-wool fleece.
