Back Story

Details

The historic Jacob sheep are famous for their horns and striking two-coloured coats of dark and light wool.  The breed is believed to have come to the UK from the Middle East, possibly via Spain.  Spotted Jacob sheep can be seen in Egyptian wall paintings dated to 1800 BCE.

Our Jacob yarn is hardwearing and ideal for outerwear or slipper socks.  The yarn is worsted spun giving it a smoother handle and wonderful stitch definition.   When the fleeces arrive at our mill, we sort the fibre by colour.
