This skein is Icelandic wool. Like Falkland wool, Icelandic wool isn’t a specific breed of sheep but rather wool that comes from sheep in Iceland. Although I really like the look and feel of the finished yarn, I didn’t enjoy spinning this yarn at all. I found it difficult to draft. Although it has a similar feel to English Shetland, it doesn’t spin like English Shetland. Fortunately, the finished yarn was worth the effort it took to spin it.
