Worth It!

I enjoy spinning Icelandic Wool and I love the natural colors. I plan on recreating a sweater I had as a teen that was knit from Icelandic Wool. I loved that sweater....

Icelandic Wool Top

So lovely to spin. An almost meditative process. Can't wait to ply it and see the yarn.

Icelandic Wook Top

As I am a spinning newbie, this fiber is a great learning fiber. It has a fairly long staple and spins well. I’m planning on making my first 3-ply yarn with it to knit into a small shawl in the natural black and medium gray. I’ll add a red border.

Great Fiber

This wool provides nice texture. It also has a good color range of light and dark greys. A good addition for needle felting and will make a wonderful tweed spun yarn.

Product Details

One 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 one of the Northern European short-tailed sheep which display more 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, and is related to such breeds as Finn, 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.
