100% Romney

Here in NZ, this is a Romney.


So why are there no Kiwi entrepreneurs selling 100% Romney wool woollen mittens to the American market this election season? You could sell them sincerely to earnest and cold Midwest Republicans; you could sell them ironically to coastal hipsters. Have "100% Romney" knitted into the back of the mitten. The slogan works for both markets.

About the Romney:
The Romney is suited to high rainfall and heavy soils, and has the highest resistance to footrot of any breed in New Zealand. It grows a heavy fleece used in carpets, furnishings and knitting yarns. The Romney was the single most popular breed in New Zealand through the 20th century. It currently makes up about 68% of the national flock – over 25 million sheep.
