Texel Ottoman        2009

The original Texel Ottoman was designed to test local wool from Dutch Texel sheep that had been made into yarn by a spinner in the Netherlands. Sadly, the local spinner has closed. 

The ottoman is made by winding thick woollen yarn into a ball. A special winding device was invented in order to produce a ball without a hole at its centre. The Texel Ottoman is currently in production by t.e. and is currently made of New Zealand wool.
