What is so unique and versatile about Icelandic wool?

*  Naturally colored, so no need for dying

*  Dual coated, so can be separated into shorter (Thel) and longer (Tog) fibers for different uses

*  Shorter fibers are softer and more insulating, longer fibers are coarser and more water repellant. The combination is extraordinary!

*  Less lanolin, so cleaner to work with, can be spun in the grease

We also have LOADS of lamb fleece – gorgeous, soft and long!  Many white fleeces, but also one black.
Birta — bright white and oh-soo-soft   1.68 pounds
SOLD

Lisa — equally soft and white   1.87 pounds
SOLD

Missy  – creamy white   1.7  pounds – she’s in the back, hiding behind Millie.  I’ve renamed her “Messy” because she seemed to find the dirt and stickers more than the other lambs – her fleece will require a little more cleaning, so I’m offering hers at a reduced price
SOLD

Rose…creamy white – 2.33 pounds
SOLD

Lily – 2.08 pounds – bright white and lots of crimp
SOLD

    Do you have any of Shirley’s fleece available?

  2. Hi Darlene! Shirley’s fleece for this fall is spoken for, but I do have a few pounds of her fleece from last year available (I’ve been spinning some of it). How much would you like? You can email us via the “Contact” page! thanks!

    Do you have any fleeces left?

    • I do have both of Drover’s fleeces available – someone else just inquired via email (not sure if it was you) and requested 2 lbs of this, so there might be a bit less depending on who gets to it first! : )
