Item details

Homespun Grey Icelandic wool, 2 ply, 76 yards. This is such pretty wool, I really don't want to part with it and I plan on spinning more. It is not a soft wool, by holds shape very well, and has such pretty striations of grey/back/white in it.

I will take special orders of more of this gorgeous fiber. Just email me and let me know how much you will need for your project.

The characteristics of the Icelandic wool (Wikipedia)

As a breed, the Iceland sheep is unique - the purity of the strain has been protected by centuries of isolation and a total absence of contact with others. By the same token, the wool it produces has no counterpart anywhere. Evolving over 1,100 years of exposure to the sub-Arctic climate, Icelandic wool has a distinctive combination of inner and outer fibers. The outer fibers are long, glossy, tough and water resistant, while the inner ones are fine, soft and insulating, providing a high resistance to cold. A further striking characteristic of the Iceland sheep is its natural colors, black, grey and brown as well as the usual white.
