More Fibers from Rare Breeds: Jacob

This is a primitive breed dating back over three thousand years, possibly originating in the area of Syria. Fleece has patches of black on white which may be carded together for varying shades of gray. These sheep have a medium fine fleece & lack the overcoat of other primitive breeds.  Pleasant to use in any of its forms - yarn, roving, fleece.
