Jacob Sheep Shearing April 10, 2020 by ourfathersgift Our Jacob sheep provide a variety of amazing products. Each year the whole flock gets shorn and each animal provides a raw fleece that can be sold. Jacob sheep do not shed their wool naturally, so shearing is an essential part of the animal’s yearly care. Without shearing, they would suffer from heat in the summer and parasite infestation. After the wool is sheared, we can felt, spin, weave, crochet, or knit the wool.
