Cheviot

 

a breed of semifine-wooled short-haired sheep raised for meat and wool. The breed was developed in the 18th century in Great Britain in the mountainous region of the Cheviot Hills by crossing local sheep with probably the Leicester breed. The rams weigh about 80 kg, and the ewes 60 kg. The white wool is 10 cm long and of 48–56 quality. A clipping yields 1.8–2.3 kg. The wool is used for soft woven fabrics and high-quality knitwear. One hundred ewes produce from 120 to 150 lambs. Cheviots are used for commercial crossing with other breeds. The animals can be acclimatized easily. They are distributed in many European countries, as well as in Canada, the USA, and Australia. In the USSR they were used in the development of the Estonian Whitehead breed.


Cheviot

 

one of the common names for wool and part-wool worsted and fine-felted suiting produced by a serge interweaving resulting in small diagonal ribs on the surface. Cheviot is manufactured from simple and twisted woolen yarn; frequently cotton yarn is used as the warp or weft. Sometimes the fabric is made from blended wool and cotton yarn. Cheviot is produced in solid, usually dark, colors for making suits and various types of uniforms.
