Pure Wool: A knitters guide to using single-breed yarns by: sue Blacker
If you have not entered the world of single-source/breed yarns this book is fantastic. Sue details 16 different breeds of sheep, including a brief history of the breed and the characteristics of their fleece and what projects it will work best with. There is a corresponding knitting pattern to go along with every breed she profiles.
My favourite part of the book is the last few pages where she has included 4 pages of easy-to-reference charts that highlight the best uses for the wool she has discusses. If you are interested in breed specific knitting/spinning this book is a great start.
