Gorgeous, I especially like the one in your first photo, makes me want one!!
She's my favourite too, a blonde sheep!
I haven't spun or knitting Icelandic but I have spun Norwegian wool which I am guessing may not be too dissimilar? Norwegian isn't the softest, next to skin yarn but it's extremely hardwearing and a good workhorse fibre and I have enjoyed spinning and knitting it.
Beautiful, they have such character.I have spun Icelandic - from commercial roving though, but have done the range of colours - have 500g of singles waiting for a project, was thinking of a bag but there is enough for something more maybe. Loved spinning it, such a lovely long staple. I'm sure it features in my blog posts over in Spinspiration or on my blog.
I've never spun Norwegian or Icelandic. The Icelandic fleece felt soft.
When I first started spinning, I got some Icelandic fleece in different colours, but it didn't make it into my sampler blanket as I decided to stick with British sheep breeds. I do agree, the first sheep is a sweetie.
