Spun by Morning Star fiber mill in Andrews, North Carolina. The coarser outer wool was removed from the Icelandic fleeces, leaving the softer inner fiber called "thel". This was spun into a three ply light worsted weight yarn with incredible insulating* properties. See our About page for more information about our sheep and farm.
