Beautiful natural tones and colors and ease of weaving and knitting, place Icelandic Fiber in the Premium or Exotic category.

Icelandic sheep are one of the world's oldest and purest breeds of sheep. Throughout their 1200 years of history starting with the Vikings, they have remained one of the few multi-purpose breeds, treasured for their meat, milk, and fiber. We started our flock 12 years ago and fell in love with these gentle, beautiful animals!

Iceland is best known for their wool around the world. The Icelandic sheep's wool is of a dual character: a fine soft undercoat (thel) & a long coarser coat (tog). Their fiber is extremely soft to begin with and after washing & wearing, the wool "blooms" & becomes even softer.

First our raw wool is processed at a wonderful "green" Colorado Mill, Mt. High Fiber Ladies, Pagosa Springs, CO, where extra steps are employed to make a superior product--a knitter or weavers' dream. Then our very own artisans spin the roving into a 2 ply Sport Weight yarn and set the twist in Cherry Creek Farm's lavender water.

Average yank is 140 yards/3.888 ounces
