It is important for the fashion industry to learn about sheep so that we have a better understanding of wool.
The sheep is a quadrupedal, ruminant mammal typically kept as livestock. Like all ruminants, sheep are members of the order Artiodactyla, the even-toed ungulates. Although the name "sheep" applies to many species in the genus Ovis, in everyday usage it almost always refers to Ovis aries.
Much of the educational information listed in this section has graciously been provided by the American Sheep Industry Association.
