British Jacob Wool Ribbed Blanket

Hand knitted by Fiona Evans exclusively for The Merchant Fox using the very finest British Jacob sheep wool, these sumptuous throws have been created in a traditional ribbed design with a moss stitch boarder.

The unique natural and warm, nutty brown and grey tones of the Jacob wool are shown in all their splendour by using large scale hand knitting techniques. Knitted using multi-strands of yarn that make these throws rich and tactile, they are a piece of true British luxury.

In the 17th and 18th Century, Jacob Sheep were imported from Spain by the British landed gentry. The Jacob breed with its splendid horns and distinct spots make it a popular breed and it fleece makes for fantastic wool.

Because of the natural colouring of the wool there is no need for it to be dyed, this results in some lanolin being retained and the wonderful smell, which reminds you where the throws are from.
The wool used for the Ribbed throw is from British Jacob sheep flocks and is carded and spun into yarn by Laxtons in West Yorkshire, specialist manufacturers of worsted and fancy yarns since 1907.
Hand knitted by Fiona Evans into these exclusive designs for The Merchant Fox.
