I have spun Texel a few times and I quite like it. I don't find it to be the softest of wools but not the roughest either - kinda in the middle.
As the Texel sheep is originally from here in The Netherlands, it is pretty easy to source fleece during sheering time.
At the moment I spinning some "german wool" not sure what that means but it seems to be a fairly long staple and soft. Since I only started spinning this year, not sure I have any favourites yet - still eager to try everything that is spinnable!
