Three of the several features that distinguish Corriedale from Merino wool are staple length (the length of the wool from the skin to the tip), crimp definition (the ridges in the wool along the length of the staple), and the brightness of the fleece. As a rule, the shorter the wool and the closer the crimps, the finer the fleece. This Corriedale is a superb example of halfbred-type wool. The fleece is long and bright, with a well-defined, even crimp.
