"The Royalty of the Fiber World"
Teeswaters carry themselves with pride with their head held high. They are a polled breed with curly forelocks with brown, black and gray markings. The wool has a pearly luster and is a finer fiber than other long wools with uniform crimp that is consistent throughout the fleece. If you are looking for a dual purpose breed, the Teeswater is felt to be a exceptional meat producer.
Originating in Great Britain, the fleece ranges between 7-1/2 to 10 pounds with an average fiber diameter from 30 to 36 microns. Teeswaters average wool growth is an inch a month. With individual hanging locks, a smooth fiber shaft, and bright luster, a Teeswater in full fleece is an amazing animal and fiber artists seek Teeswater wool for unique spinning experiences, such as tail spinning and other novelty yarns.
