The rare Teeswater sheep has been around in Teesdale, County Durham for over 200 years. While it resembles (but pre-dates) the Wensleydale, there are differences, such as a much darker nose and ears. The wool is long, lustrous, wavy and fine.

As a large sheep, Teeswater rams have been used for crossing with hill ewes, as with the Blue-faced Leicester further south and west. The Masham, the half-bred breed derived from the Teeswater ram and local ewes is the result.

We have worsted spun to further improve the softness of this fine and lustrous fibre. The result is lean, smooth, soft and luscious!
