Hogget may refer to:

  • A domestic sheep between one and two years of age.
  • The meat from such an animal. Hogget meat tends to have a darker red color than meat from a younger lamb and to have a slightly richer flavor.
  • The wool of such an animal. Hogget is the name of the first shearing of a sheep older than 3 months, and is the best wool that animal will ever give.[citation needed] It still has the unsheared lamb's wool, yet it is longer. Hand spinners prize such wool.
