This Jacob top is one of the fibers brought in for the UK Breeds Fiber Chemistry set that were milled by John Arbon Textiles, a small family-run mill in the UK that I had the pleasure of supporting by bringing some of their tops here for spinners to sample. My supplies of these tops are very limited.
A warm shade of gray-brown, this Jacob top is somewhat dense with some bits of kemp, but don't let that put you off trying it out! It spins nicely and is an interesting comparison to US-raised Jacob wool. More suited to outerwear or felting, it's not as soft as many other breeds, but sometimes you need sturdiness over softness.
4 oz braid

I only include pictures that I think accurately represent the colors of the fiber, but differences in computer monitors mean my photos may not be 100% accurate. I accept returns of items in original condition within 30 days of purchase; see the Shipping & Returns page for more information.
My top goal here at Elemental Fiberworks is to provide an fun and geeky spinning experience that you'll enjoy every minute of!
