Product Details

The Jacob Sheep is distinctive for its multiple horns (up to 6!) and wonderful, randomly spotted, black and white fleece. Ram horns can grow up to 30cm long. This is an ancient breed, going back 3000 years ago to Syria with a possible migration to England during the Spanish Armada in 1588 when, it’s said, a shipwreck resulted in some sheep washing ashore.

Jacob fleece is light, soft and springy with little lanolin. It measures 30 – 34 microns with a staple length of 5 – 15cm. The fibre is popular with spinners and feltmakers.
