Icelandic fleece top, combed professionally at a mill, after our fall 2019 shearing session. The sheep pictured here is Riffin, who grew this wonderful fleece. She is a true black, pure-bred Icelandic ewe, and her wool contains some silver flashing.

This fleece is virtually free of all vegetable matter, washed, and combed--now ready to spin into your own Lopi-style yarn, or felt into something wonderful.

This listing is for 1 oz of mill-combed top.

My flock of Icelandic sheep are 100% pasture-raised. I employ intensive grazing techniques, building soil health and helping to sequester carbon. I feed high-quality locally produced hay in the winter, and never grain. Your purchase helps support these efforts.
Please reach out with any questions.

Premium fall fleece roving, perfect for your next project.

This is a blend of both the under and over coat from my sweet black ewe, Rifinn. Our favorite wool mill washed and carded this roving. It is sold by the ounce.
