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 beautiful petite two-year-old ewe named Java (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 this gunmetal grey TOG by first hand washing and rinsing Java’s fleece with special wool soap and lavender oil. Then I hand separated the tog from the thel and carded the fiber to align it on my hand cards for you to use in your hand spinning or crafting. This long and lovely 100% wool supply preparation contains only the strong tog fibers of the Icelandic sheep breed (These sheep are dual-coated — they grow not just one, but two fiber types that were historically separated, though this historical practice is seldom practiced today!). If you haven’t tried spinning a thin strong thread, I’d recommend you try it with this strictly tog preparation!
