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.

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.
Love, love this company. They are awesome to buy from
Fast shipping and exactly as ordered
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!
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.
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 :)
