A sampler pack of three naturally colored Icelandic wool rovings, two ounces each of white, brown and black (some might say very dark brown). Use it to spin up yarn for colorwork knitting, or play with the different shades in your felting projects.
Icelandic wool is dense, long fiber with good luster. This is one of the best felting wools in the world, as it is lightweight, water repellent, and breathable. 34-36 micron, average staple length 3.5-4 inches. The modern Icelandic sheep is a direct descendent of the sheep brought to Iceland by the early Viking settlers in the ninth and tenth centuries, and are kept pure by strict rules about importing other sheep into Iceland. They are a north European short-tailed type.
