Jacob – Grey (Top)


Classification: PRIMITIVE

Combed top with little to no veg. Jacob are one of the few multicolour (and multihorned) sheep, of ancient origin. This top is a gorgeous heathered blend of ash, grey and black. Certainly soft enough to use for sweaters, mittens and scarves.

Micron count is typically in the 27 to 35 range, with a staple length of 4 to 6 inches. Felting properties are good.

NOTE: Our supply usually includes a moderate amount of GUARD HAIRS sprinkled throughout the fibre. These are a fair bit coarser than the base fibres. Combing them out might be an option, if they are a problem for your intended project.
