Organically Grown Icelandic Sheep Raw Wool Fleeces, Roving and Yarn in a variety of Natural colors
Icelandic sheep are dual-coated, and their fleeces are often spun into a popular style of yarn called Lopi. The water-resistant outer fleece, called tog, may also be separated from the soft, inner fleece, called thel, for different knitting applications. Since they are low in lanolin, many people like to spin these fleeces in the raw. Icelandic fleeces offer great variety; no two are really the same in color or pattern.
$20 / lb. lamb fleece + shipping
$16 / lb. adult fleece + shipping
Professionally processed roving (by the ounce or pound), yarn, and pelts are also available.
