  • Fibre Focus - The Jacob Sheep
    the descendants of Jacob s sheep travelled to Spain via North Africa and Morocco Coming to England In the 17th and 18th Century Jacob sheep were imported from Spain by the British landed gentry and the oldest known flock imported in the 1750s still graze at Charlecote Park in Warwickshire The English loved the Jacob with their spotted fleeces and distinctive horns making them ideal as ornamental sheep to graze alongside deer in parklands surrounding castles and stately homes However by the end of the First World War many of the flocks had disappeared and by the mid part of the 20th Century few Jacob sheep remained But some dedicated breeders were determined to preserve the breed and so formed the Jacob Sheep Society in 1969 with 96 members and 2700 registered sheep The first president of the Society was the Dowager Duchess of Devonshire of Chatsworth Estate in Derbyshire In its early days the breed was registered as a Minority Breed Today the Society has more than 850 members and around 2000 sheep are registered each year in the flock book In 1974 the Rare Breeds Survival Trust was formed and reported that the breed was the success story of recent years with over 5000 registered sheep in the flock book the progress of the Jacob in the last two or three years provides a blueprint for the conservation and development of other rare breeds it added Wool The breed yields a fairly soft fleece of good quality demi lustre wool which is excellent for spinning and weaving The unique colour of the wool makes every garment or woven item individual The fleece of a Jacob is light soft springy and open with little lanolin and varies in crimp and fineness Jacobs are shorn once a year usually in
