Rare Breed Jacob Sheepskin Rug
The Jacob is a rare breed small horned sheep commonly bred for their wool and meat. They are what is known as an ‘heirloom’ breed, meaning that they have survived with little human selection. It is widely agreed that Jacobs are the descendants from ancient old world sheep, they take the name of the biblical figure Jacob. These sheep have been documented in England from the 17th Century and share the similar brown and white markings. These beautiful markings vary from spots to splodges and everything in between.
As with all of our sheepskin and shearling , each piece is carefully hand picked by us. If you have special requirements for the size or patterns on your Jacob Rug please include this on the notes section of your order. Alternatively, if you wish to phone or email us we would be delighted to talk through options with you and ensure that your requirements are met.
