100% Jacob Wool is the next yarn in our Sock Culture.

The Jacob sheep is a domestic British breed and is an interesting one. It is pie-ball in colour, meaning it has a multi coloured fleece with dark patches, usually located in the face. It is also multi horned, mostly 4 horns (but can have as many as 6!). See the photo attached. The origins of this sheep are not known but they have been around since the mid 17th century. Whilst not listed as endangered it is on the UK Rare Breeds Trust watch list.

We are excited for you to join us in exploring different breeds of sheep and their wool through this exclusive sock club. The yarns we source are identified as 'sock yarns' either due to their hardiness, long staple length or added nylon by the mills we source them from. Not all yarn needs nylon to be a sturdy sock yarn. They may not all be buttery soft but they are all soft enough for comfort on your feet.

We are now taking pre-orders of this sock yarn sourced from the UK and hand dyed by us in our Brisbane based dye studio.
