Jacob wool has a wonderfully rustic appeal and is delightful to squish!. This super breed produces a distinctive dark brown and white fleece which is very versatile.  This versatility enables the mill to spin variable shades ranging from dark, to mid to light grey.

The wool is classified as a medium fibre with a medium handle and is therefore suitable for knitting near to the skin projects such as hats, shawls and sweaters, (if you are a little sensitive, wear a t-shirt underneath!) I’ve used Jacob to knit mittens and find them extremely warm and comfortable!  

The Jacob wool I source is grown in the UK, then scoured and spun by a small independent UK Mill.
