Jacob natural black
A classic hand spinners wool that is also perfect for hand felting!
This 100% natural black Jacob combed wool top. *Please note that Black Jacob is not a true jet black (see photo) Jacob wool is a medium quality, natural coloured wool. It is the classic hand spinners wool that is also perfect for hand felting and many other craft uses These tops are made from selected Jacob fleeces. The English gentry used to keep Jacob as ornamental animals. Over time they have undergone breeding shifts to make them more productive as meat animals. Origin: England, staple lengths: 85 to 95mm and fibre diameters: 33 to 35 microns. Although you can dye Jacob, this one is a bit too dark.
This item is 100% natural wool. Every year sheep produce a new fleece, making wool a renewable fibre source. FibreHut are official supporters of the campaign for wool.
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!)
