Texel Wool


Texel wool wool comes exclusively from Texel, an island off the North coast of Holland. It has a population of 13,300 people and over 100,000 sheep. The people of Texel have been raising sheep for over 600 years, and have developed a unique breed of sheep that is both hardy and produces wool of unrivalled quality. Texel Sheep have adapted to a very windy and harsh environment to produce a unique, long wool fibre with a high crinkle factor and high natural lanolin content.

Products made from Texel wool are softer, thicker, warmer, and longer lasting. It is especially well suited to sleep products because of its superior durability, insulation, and moisture regulation. ENKEV processes the Texel Wool by traditionally carding the wool followed by a needle punch process. ENKEV can also produce the Texel wool in various weights per square meter. The product can be delivered in sheets and rolls with a maximum width of 2,30 meters.
