100% Jacob wool from Northern California, spun into a soft, bouncy 2 ply sport. Spotted Jacob sheep fleeces have been sorted into two different color yarns to really play with the natural range of colors. This yarn is perfect for hats, scarves and gloves and much more!

This yarn is undyed, the natural sheep colors, an off white and a grey. Each batch is a little different since sheep come in so many lovely colors, so be sure to buy enough for your project.

See some vegetable matter (VM)? Take that as a good sign. It means the sheep have happy lives frolicking in fields. It also means that the VM hasn't been burned out the wool. This usually happens via a process called carbonization. It involves sulfuric acid, lots of water, and may cause harm to mill workers. The VM can be picked out as you work.
