We like to stock local wool when we can and our Jacob Sheep Wool comes from the Shutecombe Flock near Bere Ferrers, just a hand full of miles from Tavistock. The wool is spun at Launceston, also just a few miles from Tavistock.
The current seasons knitting wool is not dyed but has a natural colour, combining the black and white fibres from the Jacob fleece. For the next season we will also be stocking black and white yarns to complement the mix. Because it is a natural product, the Jacob Sheep Wool varies in colour at each shearing. So, if you are planning to knit a large garment, make sure you buy enough wool at the beginning.
