Thank you for your interest in our farmstead fiber products.
I love to prepare fibers by hand, so working with this special wool is a labor of love. This is an offer not only from me, but from our sheep too. I love hand spinning, knitting, crochet, and felting, thus almost fifteen years ago I became a shepherdess too! Today our flock of beautiful Icelandic sheep numbers 20 and growing! These lovely clouds are made from the fleece of our big beautiful two-year-old ewe named DoodleBug (she’s registered). Your purchase from this Etsy shop helps the sheep on our farm get not just the basic care, but receive their much-deserved royal treatment too! Handwork is definitely a treat for me and I hope you’ll feel that way when you play with our fibers too!
I prepared these gunmetal grey clouds by first hand washing and rinsing DoodleBug’s fleece with special wool soap and lavender oil. Then I hand carded light airy batts on my hand carder and split each batt into a cloud of roving for you to use in your hand spinning or felting. These fluffy 100% wool supply preparations combine both the tog and the thel, the long fiber and the short downy soft fibers of the Icelandic sheep breed (These sheep are dual-coated — they grow not just one, but two fiber types!). If you haven’t tried felting, I’d recommend you try it with these easy-felting poufy batts — they work great to felt soap!
