We’ve been working for a number of years to eliminate the environmentally damaging aspects of dyeing wool. We think we’ve almost succeeded. The lamb pictured at right is the first GMO lamb successfully expressing a gene for multi-colourism in it’s wool. We isolated the gene from a bird of paradise and inserted it in the embryo of this lamb.
We need to work some more on getting solid colours but this is a good start. It will be interesting to see what we get when we cross this ram with our white ewes.
