Icelandic Rovings For Sale

The rovings offered for sale here are from raw Icelandic Spring fleeces, that have been heavily skirted to remove belly wool and vegetative matter, thoroughly washed and then blended and carded into spinners roving by Blue Hills Fiber Mill in Bruce WI, by Carothers Country Fiber Mill in Minnesota City MN, or by English Gardens Fiber Mill in Caledonia MN. Sheep pictures are taken in the Fall when they are wearing their best coats. Icelandic wool contains two types of fiber: the thel or undercoat that is very fine with lots of crimp, and the tog that has a longer staple (3-6" in the Spring), is less fine, and has lots of natural curl. The thel and tog have been combined in these rovings. If you wish to purchase some of these quality rovings, please order on-line via PayPal, or call or email us. Shipping charges within the United States will be added to your purchase price. For shipping outside the United States please email us for an estimate, or purchase the fleeces on Paypal and we will bill you for the shipping before we send the order. PayPal, Credit Cards (via paypal), or Personal Checks are accepted as payment. These rovings are priced according to the weights after processing; the shipped weight may be 5-6% less due to moisture loss.

List Printout: If you are interested in a hard-copy printout of this web page, to study off-line in more detail, simply select FILE/PRINT in your browser. The current page formating is set for 0.5 inch left/right margins and 0.3 inch top/bottom margins in LANDSCAPE mode (shrink to fit).
Colors: The exact shades of colors seen here may vary slightly, depending upon the monitor you are displaying them on. In particular, black is very difficult to photograph and reproduce on a computer monitor - a black roving may appear to have a brown tint to it, but in actuality is very black.
Weights: The rovingss are priced according to the weights at processing; the shipped weight may be 5-6% less due to moisture loss during storage. "(v.m.)" notation indicates the roving contains significant vegetative matter and the price has been reduced.
Genetics: The names above each sheep's picture refer to breeding rams in Iceland to which each sheep is related. A VAI-Ewe or VAI-Ram is the product of vaginal articifial insemination using frozen semen from rams currently living in Iceland. We began using this procedure for introducing new genetics into our flock after hosting the 3rd SouthRam VAI Workshop at our farm in September of 2007.

Testimonials

"The roving you sent from Grima and Eydis came about three weeks ago and both are absolutely gorgeous! You were right - the processing is some of the best I have seen, immaculate and flawless."
     (DR from Michigan)
"Sorry, I meant to email you immediately. The box arrived last Friday. It is wonderful. Thank you so much. I can hardly wait to start spinning. And I loved the photos. I’ll be keeping those."
     (SB from Maine)
"The second box of rovings arrived today. They are all lovely! Best of luck with the lambs this year, and thanks again."
