Black Jacobs Tops 100gm

Jacobs wool is light, soft and springy and therefore easy to spin, making it ideal for beginners. This British wool comes in a range of natural colours, including greys and blacks, making it popular with spinners and weavers. This is the black variety of Jacobs wool.

With a diameter of 33 to 35 micron, and 4 to 5 inches staple length, this is a durable wool with a variety of uses. This distinctive wool is strong enough for making bags and rugs and comfortable enough for cardigans and coats. It also felts and dyes well.



You can buy these fibres for spinning and dyeing and many more;

Blue Faced Leicester (BFL) Wool Tops:
BFL is a British wool that is highly prized for its similarity to mohair and for its attractive, silky, lustrous yarns. Blue-faced Leicester dyes very well and felts easily and quickly to a smooth, silky finish. This beautiful British fibre comes in natural cream, oatmeal and brown colours.

Shetland Wool Tops:
Shetland is a soft traditional British wool that is very easy to blend either with other wool colours or with exotic fibres in a hand carder or drum carder because of its shorter staple length.

Shetland-Tussah silk 50% Blend:
Feel & see the luxury of silk in this 50% Tussah silk blend with the added warmth & stretch of wool. Blends with less than 50% don’t look like silk. You need at least 50% to both feel and see the silk.
