Things to know
A cross between British Longwool sheep and Merinos and again mated back to Marinos resulted in Comeback sheep.
The style of wool produced by comeback sheep can also be the same as Bond, Cormo and Polwarth sheep. But Comebacks is not as easier to breed than rest here.
Recently the type has been produced by crossing the Corriedale and Polwarth with the Merino.
