Wool around sheeps eyesgreenspun.com : LUSENET : Countryside : One Thread
I'd just like to know what the wool cut from around a sheep's eyes is called?

Well, around here we call it wool. But are you trying to pull the wool over our eyes? LOL. Your addy is Australia. Maybe you already know something about sheep!

Out West we call it face-wool. And if you aren't careful it could be called eye-lashes.

I'm afraid this is another question. Does anyone know the special word for tufts of sheeps'wool caught and left behind on hedges or barbed wire?

After long reflection I think the word for the original question might be 'lock'. I don't know about the wool on fences and hedges though.
