Historically the entire production of Escorial wool was reserved for the sole use of the Spanish Royal Family. In the fourteenth century Spanish royalty took possession of a unique flock of sheep originating from North Africa. This flock became known as the Escorial flock when the Escorial palace was built in the sixteenth century on the plains overlooking Madrid where the flock grazed.
Today descendants of the original flock are extremely rare and found only in Southern Australia and New Zealand. Here a small group of dedicated growers provide special care and preserve this endangered breed. Environmentally sustainable and ecologically friendly Escorial is the ultimate in luxury and performance.
