This listing is for 110g of the Icelandic wool combed top/roving shown in the picture. This fiber was dyed in a 1lb batch, which is 4 braids, and I list everything I have, so the listed quantities are accurate. Fiber can be spun into yarn for an extra fee.

I use professional grade acid dye and take care to provide colourfastness, and I rinse with only water so there's no scent.

Icelandic wool has a long staple and little crimp. It has a hollow-airy quality and lends itself wonderfully to low-twist singles that trap air and keep the wearer warm even when wet. This fiber is one of the finer, softer Icelandics I've come across.

This base fibre is a humbug blend, which means that black, white, and grey wool was blended together in stripes. When dyed, this creates a wonderful variation.

BATCH NOTES: There are 4 braids in this batch. Two of them have more purple and yellow (shown on the right in the first two pictures and alone in the fourth picture), and two have less (shown on the left in the first two pictures, and alone in the third picture). They will blend together perfectly well, but if you have a preference for one or the other, let me know when you order).
