The Jacob breed yields a fairly soft fleece of good quality demi-lustre wool which is excellent for spinning and weaving. The unique colour of the wool makes every garment or woven item individual.

The fleece of a Jacob is light, soft, springy and open with little lanolin and varies in crimp and fineness.

Due to the natural black and white colour of the fleece, Jacob wool is hugely popular amongst spinners and weavers, to create beautiful un-dyed yarns and textiles. Depending on how much black and white fleeces are blended together while spinning, it will create a great variety of shades ranging from pure white to pure black, with a multitude of greys in between. Due to its fairly wide fibre diameter, Jacob wool is hard-wearing which makes it really good for outerwear, although it is still fine enough to be used for all sorts of garments. Lofty fleece are also great to provide with thicker, warmer fabric, and so you’re guaranteed to knit yourself something really cosy with it. West Yorkshire Spinners is one of the few manufacturers to produce yarn made out of 100% Jacob wool. g
