Should sharp sand have pebbles!?

Hi folks,
I've just brought home a bag of sharp sand. I'm just wondering whether it should really have pebbles in it or if I've got a duff batch!? They're quite big some of them 1/4 to 1/2 an inch in diameter.

Thanks for any thoughts

No, sharp sand should only contain sharp sand. No pebbles or rocks. If your making mortar then bigger pieces would make it unusable. If using it to make concrete then it doesn't hurt.
