A Satisfied Customer's Testimony to the
Wonderful Qualities of Icelandic Wool for Felting:
Start shearing now...I'm hooked on your Icelandic
wool! Wow! This stuff felts like a dream...way, way,
WAY easier than the Romney I used on the first two
hats! ...I really can't believe how much easier this is
to felt. I laid out the batts last night and was just
going to get started, then work on it the next couple
of days...but in a couple short hours last night I had it
felted tighter and firmer than the two hats I have
done! I think one more short session of wringing and
rolling and it will be ready for final shaping already!
That's less than a quarter of the time taken by the
