Jacob fleece might be one of my favourite wools, it is very variable both in quality from fine to coarse fibres and also from pure white through cream to brown and almost black.
I was given a large bag of jacob which was remarkably clean, it had been skirted already but there was hardly any straw or vegetable matter, it felt and smelt wonderfully woolly with a generous coating of lanolin.
I gave it a quick wash with a little detergent and lots of hot water, a few rinses later and after drying in the sun it was ready to go.
I decided that I would simply spin it as it came, not worrying about separating the colours, in the hope for a rustic grey.
The photos should all be fairly self-explanatory, the 3 ply was spun after making a plying cake with 3 singles and spun tightly to make a good hard wearing sock yarn
