8oz of raw, Icelandic fleece! There is a distinct double coat in this fleece, along with some VM. The outer and under coats can either be spun together or easily separated using combs. The under coat is a light brown and the outer coat is blonde.
Softness rating: Under coat is soft, outer coat is wiry Staple length: Variable Spinning skill level: Beginner - Icelandic is very approachable in my opinion, and can be spun a variety of ways making it fun to experiment with.
To wash a raw fleece with small amounts of grease I use Unicorn Power Scour per directions on the bottle. I do 2, 20min washes with power scour, then do 1 wash with slightly cooler water and no soap until water is close to clear.
