Texel sheep are primarily know for their use as a meat sheep. Although this may be why they were created, I think the fleece has been overlooked. It is a 3-6 inch staple with loft, luster and crimp. There are slight differences in the the length and micron count depend on where the texel is from.
The wool is of medium grade with no black fibers. The micron count goes from 26-32 depending on the animal. An adult texel can grow a fleece weight of 7-12 pds sheared …. enough for a sweater and then some. Texel is feltable but requires a bit more work to do so…….I’ve tried it and, Man my arms were tired!!!!!
Here is my lovely texel fiber.
