Yes, Taschen sind angenäht! Tragefotos folgen natürlich auch noch 😂😂. Anleitung: #Schottlandding (im Test)
Garn: @westyorkshirespinners #jacobsfleece , wurde mir von @woolhouse_de zur Verfügung gestellt 🥰. Ich hatte es schon an. Die Taschen sind perfekt 🥰 so mag ich das 😁. Vielleicht stricke ich mir noch einen Rollkragenloop dazu 🤔? #teststrick #testknit #knittersofinstagram #knittersofravelry #stricken #strickdesign #knitding

I’ve finally got around to washing, blocking and photographing some finished objects 🙌🏻 This my Arboreal sweater by Jennifer Steinglass, and @little_bear_knits and I both knitted one, we had our own little knit-along which was so much fun. I knitted mine in Rowan Baby Merino and Silk in blue and cream, which I bought from my lys Yarn N Yarns in Penarth, and Corinne knitted hers in WYS in Jacobs Fleece in cream and brown 😍 and judging by the weather we’re having, I’ll definitely be wearing mine a lot! 👍😁 #arborealsweater #jacobsfleece #rowanyarns #jennifersteinglass

My lovely sister gave me a Jacob's fleece in the spring. Never dealt with a raw fleece before!! Over the summer it has been washed and dried and now I'm spinning it up. Still loads to spin, but hope to turn it into a jumper over the winter.

The finished article #feltedslippers... A tad big for my size 7s, but I persuaded Steve to try them on. Bit of a Cinderella moment.. Fitted him perfectly!

Playing with texture and subtle colour variations. Jacob fleece and Gotland locks plied together. Now the question is whether to add little splashes of colour? #handspinning #handspunyarn #handspunwool #jacobsfleece #jacobwool #gotlandfleece #undyedwool #handspun

There's been a big sack of stinky Jacob's fleece dumped in the summerhouse for over a year. (It was a gift). Now it's finally been brought out into the light of day, before moth and rot set in. Here the black (or at least very dark) fibre spun lofty and chunky with flashes of naturally dyed Portland fleece 🐏 Like it 😀 #handspunyarn #handspinning #jacobsfleece #jacobswool #jacobsheep #woolspinning #naturallydyed #wooldyeing

HELP NEEDED! Instagram people - please share this in your stories etc and pass to anyone who may be interested.
My Dad has some Jacobs sheep that were shorn recently and has about 6 - 8 (hard to count!) fleeces (about 1-2kg each) hanging out in the barn that could do with a good home with someone who knows what to do with it. They are all unwashed.
Either looking to sell individual fleeces or the whole lot. They’re mostly black and brown with a couple white and brown too. Would be great if anyone was local so I could deliver/you collect rather than posting - near to Dunmow, Essex.
Price is negotiable - around £15 per fleece or £100 for the lot. (Plus postage if applicable)

Please share as I don’t want them to go to waste and I don’t have room in my tiny flat to do much with them!

Washed 500 gram from the stash, now dried and ready to card on my new Ashford drum carder. Should I keep the colours separate? Or mix them all up and end with a murky brown? Decisions, decisions ....

These beautiful skeins of handspun Jacobs fleece arrived from Sarah @scruffydogeco! What a lovely surprise. I am knitting and crocheting cushions for a grey sofa so these colours will be beautiful and will complement the one I've nearly finished. Thank you so much Sarah, I love them, and the wool is so soft and squishy! #wool #handspun #handspunwool #jacobswool #jacobsfleece #natural #purewool #nonylon #naturalcolours #busypottering

Our monthly guild meeting yesterday focused on fleece. I went with no intention of buying any! This is our chair @toomanyhobbysgirl unravelling a Jacobs’s fleece, with such beautiful colours, we shared half each! Although, I went off in a rush and forgot to pick my half up. I know it’s being looked after for me until I pick it up later this week. #jacobsfleece #sheep #spinnersofinstagram #weaversofinstagram #dyersofinstagram #beautifulcolours #berkshireguildofspinnersweaversanddyers #fleeceday #knitting #weaving #dyeing

Yell jacket in waiting! From Marie Wallin’s Shetland book. I spun this yarn up over the winter and now its had a wash. The black was from a Jacobs fleece and the rest are tops from #johnarbontextiles.

This Jacob Fleece is so dark brown I had to add an effect to see the twist. 😳
I happy with the sport weight, just need to wok on the consistency. Produced the effect I wanted by using combs. Test after test...document...document every step ....learning process🧡🧡🧡

Thanks to the many fine folks who participated in this weekend’s @jeffcofarmtour and all of the local farms/cideries/wineries/and more that opened up wide to welcome the community! It’s an amazing privilege and pleasure to be surrounded by so many wonderful, hardworking, land-loving, caring and creative farmers, fermenters, educators and entrepreneurs. And thanks to the WSU crew for putting it all together.

One of my first wool spinning wheel projects. This is Jacobs fleece from Jacobs sheep. They are naturally bicolored and the wool reflects that in a soft brown and cream.

This is my hat of choice in cold weather.

I spin thick and thin. Not a perfectionist plus I love all the imperfections and bumps.
