Cherry Creek Farm is proud to offer our Purebred Icelandic Sheep fiber: roving, millspun, handspun,and batting.

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 13 years ago and fell in love with these gentle, beautiful animals! They are raised naturally - lots of fresh air, Rocky Mountain spring water, Colorado premium grass hay, and certified organic vegetable trimmings from our Market Gardens.

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.

Icelandic wool is one of the easiest and fastest felting fibers. It also dyes very beautifully, if this is your pleasure.

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