Icelandic Roving

Icelandic Roving

Sheep have been the key to Iceland's survival, providing generations of Icelanders not only with food but also with wool as protection from the biting cold of the harsh northern climate.  Without sheep, Iceland would have been uninhabitable.  

 

Icelandic wool has a distinctive combination of inner and outer fibres. The outer fibres (tog), are long, glossy, tough and water-resistant, while the inner ones (pel), are fine, soft and insulating.  Icelandic wool garments are warm, waterproof and light, but not next-to-skin soft.

Roving is white and sold in one pound portions.  This wool is from a local Alberta mill and is of a medium fineness.
