The effect of hydrodynamic and roller die drawing on the ferrite texture of high carbon steel wires with diameter 3.8 and 3.0 mm has been investigated. Pole figures, inverse pole figures and orientation distribution functions were determined for final and intermediate wire diameters. The average fibre texture  is the most homogeneous in hydrodynamically drawn wires when compared to conventionally drawn wires and to wires drawn through roller dies. At an increase of the total reduction from 54.3% to 71.5%, the increase of the  fibre texture was observed for wires which were drawn hydrodynamically and conventionally. Wires drawn in a roller die revealed a decrease of the  fibre texture with an increase of total reduction.
