Teeswater sheep originated in Teesdale, England. Teeswater sheep are classified as an English Long Wool breed. The Teeswater sheep are of a gentle/docile temperament. Teeswater wool is of a long staple length, high lustor, extremely soft and genetically kemp free. The long purley locks contain no dark fiber and hang free, without propensity to felt on the animal. Teeswater wool has a soft handle. As of 2020 remains in an upgrade status in North America. So far, the only Teeswater sheep in North America are the result of importation of UK semen and artificial insemination.

Here at Lawrence Cottage we are upgrading with the goal of a purebred registered Teeswater flock. We have percentage Teeswater ewes. We are excited to be adding a few fine Teeswater sheep to our flock with many thanks to the Dally's of Five Oaks Teeswaters!

Teeswater sheep are on the United Kingdom Rare Breed Survival Trust watch list. Their current status "vulnerable". Here at Lawrence Cottage we will strive to preserve this wonderful breed. We feel very honored to have in our care a few of these regal sheep.

We are members of the American Teeswater Sheep Association
