About the breed

Texel sheep are named after the Dutch island where the breed was developed.

Although the precise history is vague, it seems that they are of a short-tailed, hardy Northern European variety crossed with strains of English long-wool breeds that were brought to the island during the first half of the nineteenth century.

Nowadays, Texels are found all over the UK (where this roving is from), as well as Australia, New Zealand, and North America -- they have experienced a surge of popularity over the past 60 years due to their muscular frame (a great benefit for the meat trade), but hand-spinners are well aware of the good quality of their wool.
