Icelandic Wool Pelt
This wool pelt is of beautiful quality that will last for generations to come, with proper care. It measures 48″ long by 31″ wide. The staple length is 12″ long. You will enjoy the density of the double wool layers, the tog and pel.
The outer coat, called tog, is a true wool and should not be confused as being the same thing as the longer guard hairs on other breeds of sheep. It can grow to 6-8 inches in just 6 months, and is particularly lustrous as well as quite strong and durable. The fine undercoat is called Þel (pronounced “thel”), which grows to 2-4 inches in length.
A favorite place to display our pelts is on the end of the bed or on the back of our rocking chair. It makes for a warm, cozy place to relax.
