THE WRINKLY RAMS

Home of NZ's only Merino Sheep Shearing Show!

The ancient sheep defined by its wrinkly skin, small stature and super fine wool is the Merino. Rams are the horned males. Of unknown origin, this special breed has allowed New Zealand high country folk to be able to live in the region since colonization. With unique wool characteristics the Merino can withstand the freezing winters and hot dry summers. This natural eco super fiber is desired by European fashion houses-bringing resources back to the small high country communities.
The Wrinkly Rams pays homage to the breed, the culture and the +6000 year relationship between man and sheep. Learn more about the Merino history in NZ- its life, culture and why its wool is desired in our Merino sheep shearing show.
