This 100% natural black Jacob combed wool top. *Please note that Black Jacob is not a true jet black (see photo) These combed tops are made from selected Jacob fleeces and the shades are 100% natural. Origin: England, staple lengths: 85 to 95mm and fibre diameters: 33 to 35 microns. 

What can I use it for?


Jacob is the classic hand spinners wool that is also perfect for wet felting, needle felting and many other craft uses. Although you can dye Jacob, this one is a bit too dark. There are also limitless possibilities for blending with other wool or fibres such as silks, flax, bamboo etc.

How much fibre will I need?

This will depend on how finely you spin plus the size and tension of the final knitted garment. The weights below are a helpful guide but cannot be guaranteed. If you are unsure, always buy a little bit more than you think you'll need (that's what stashes are for!)

Not sure?

You can order a FREE SAMPLE of this item to try, feel and colour match at home! Please note: we allow a maximum of 8 samples in total per order and post & packing will still apply.

Natural & biodegradable

Wool is 100% natural. Every year sheep produce a new fleece making it a renewable fibre source. At the end of its useful life it can be returned to the soil where it will decompose.

Monitor, phone & tablet settings can affect the product colours and shades shown. There could also be slight shade variations from batch to batch.
