Jacob wool roving Sourced and hand dyed in Northeast Ohio
How It’s Made Matters: When you buy from Pindrop Fibers, you are not only supporting local small business, but also small farms and local fiber artists. Your purchase allows us to re-invest in our growing business by purchasing items and services from local fiber mills, farmers and dye suppliers.
This wool comes from a rare breed of sheep. Over the past many centuries, farmers have worked to develop numerous breeds of livestock. These animals exhibit traits vital for success on a small farm, such as good mothering characteristics and ability to thrive in harsh weather. These qualities are not considered valuable in today’s “big-ag” world, so some of these wonderful breeds are facing extinction. Your purchase helps raise awareness and keep the breed alive, as well as helping your local fiber artist.
Shave ‘Em to Save ‘Em is a challenge put on by the Livestock Conservancy as an effort to help save these breeds. Learn more at rarewool.org. Let us know if you are participating in the challenge and we can send your sticker with the order!
