 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.

Icelandic wool roving

I thought it is a nice wool, seemed easy to use. But I think I need to use a larger/heavier spindle. My next purchase!

Icelandic Roving

Excellent, as always. Product as describer, quick delivery and, when needed, personal care/service via phone. Too bad there's a whole state between us. I'd be in the store all the time.

I love paradise fibers

the website is informative and easy to navigate. the product is always amazing. I am a felter that the wool roving that I have received is perfect for my projects. As it happens, I discovered that in 2006 I ordered beautiful, reasonably priced, gorgeous colored roving for flat felting... and who did I order it from Paradise Fibers!!!!... my return to felting (but now sculptural felting) has been aided by the great roving that I get from Paradise :)
