White Jacob Wool Soft Creamy Ivory Spinning Fiber 4 ounces
Jacob sheep wool natural spinning fiber
A lovely, naturally ivory spinning fiber! Spotted Jacob fleeces were carefully separated into their colours. What resulted is an uncommon completely white Jacob fibre, processed into light airy roving. Don’t miss out on this rare treat!
The raw fleece was cleaned and processed at a custom mill into pin drafted roving so there has been minimal processing and NO harsh chemicals or fiber strippers used (that's why there is a little veg in it). This means the very best qualities of this fiber have been preserved! It also means this fiber has a very small environmental foot print!
This fiber is pretty clean with only the odd pieces of veg matter (they're big and easy to see!). I have spun up some of this myself and I don't have to pre-draft it at all. That's the beauty of pin drafted roving! The staple is medium length and the fiber is buttery soft for next-to-skin wear.
On a scale of 1 to 10 with 1 being potscrubbers and 10 being a baby's bottom this fiber is a 7- 8 with a very pleasant hand. This fiber will felt and can also be dyed. Hand wash in lukewarm. Lay flat to dry.
This listing is for roving with a total weight of about 4 ounces.
