Jacob is my favorite fiber. I love the raw sheepiness of it. I love the the rough dark hair that makes it change colors all by itself. I love its itchiness on my feet on a cold January morning. I love that I can see what it has been rolling in out in the field. This particular Jacob is very sheepy and so far I have done a pretty poor job of washing it. I have had too much going on since I brought it home with me from the MDSW so I did not give it the attention it needed. Now with the cooler weather, I may have to get out the washing pots and have another go at it before the sun on the back of the house is gone for good.
