Texel sheep are native to and named after the Dutch island of Texel. Mainly known as a meat breed, the best fiber can be soft and good for spinning and felting. We've found Texel fiber for this purpose and hand dyed it in vibrant colors. While not as soft as BFL or Merino, Texel fibers are fantastic for beginning spinners and the resulting yarn knits up into sturdy mittens, socks and other outerwear.
Texel is a perfect wool for beginning and experienced spinners alike.
