Wensleydale is a British breed of sheep named for the Wensleydale region of North Yorkshire, England.

They were originally bred in the nineteenth century by cross-breeding a Dishley Leicester ram with a local sheep that is now extinct.

It is a rare sheep breed and known for its high quality wool. With a long staple but soft texture it is a pleasure to spin and felt with.

The Wenseleydale sheep produces a wool with an average staple length of 7-12" with a micron count of 30-36.
