On of the world's oldest and purest breeds of sheep. Throughout its 1100 years of history, the Icelandic breed has been truly triple-purpose, treasured for its meat, fiber and milk.

The Icelandic Sheep is a domesticated sheep breed. One of the Northern European short-tailed sheep which display variety in color and pattern than most other breeds. They are a dual-coated breed. 

The modern Icelandic Sheep is a direct descendant of the sheep brought to Iceland by the early Viking settlers in the ninth and tenth century. Related to such breeds as Finnsheep, Romanov, and Shetland. 

This is one of the best felting wools in the world as it is lightweight, water repellent, and breathable. The individuals fibers have a beautiful crimp with strong tencel strength and brilliant luster. The micron count of this fiber is 34-36 microns, with an average staple length of 90-100mm. This fiber will felt beautifully, spin effortlessly, dye generously, and is perfectly suited for beginner and advanced fiber artists. We offer this wool in 6 natural colorways.

Beautiful

I’ve never spun Icelandic wool before and I love it. Humbug practically spins its self. Softer than I expected it to be and I really like the staple length. Beautiful coloring.
