Carded cloud of Icelandic (natural black) wool, Border Leicester wool and hemp.

Wool & Hemp, 2 primitive fibers come together for a one of a kind spinning experience....the possibilities are endless! 

The wool in this blend has a staple length of 4 inches and the hemp fiber is approximately 4 inches. These 2 fibers work well together and produce a very strong yarn/material that is soft, warm and durable.
