The Cheviot sheep are medium to large framed animals with a distinctive white-face and pricked ears, their head and legs are wool free. Rams have a distinctive roman nose that isn't as pronounced in the ewes. Both rams and ewes are generally polled.
Cheviots did well in those bleak, windswept conditions, with their strong constitution, easy lambing, well developed mothering instinct, and fast maturity. It is a very alert, active sheep, with a stylish, lively carriage.
The Cheviot is a long-wool breed, hornless and of reasonable frame. Initially, it developed some popularity in Australia as a sire of top quality prime lambs as well as for crossing with Merinos to produce prime lamb mothers.
Cheviot wool has a distinctive helical crimp, which gives it that highly desirable resilience. Cheviot wool is often blended into other yarns to give resilience and durability to the finished article. The fleece is dense and long-stapled, of 56-50s quality, and springy to the touch. These special properties also help reduce fleece rot and fly strike problems.
Bred to look after themselves, Cheviots need less husbandry. Their ease of lambing and strong mothering instinct means fewer lambing problems. Hard black feet make them less prone to foot rot. Their tendency for worm resistance means less drenching, less crutching and less fly strike. With wool-free faces, Cheviots never suffer from wool blindness.
