Norwegian – Black (Top)
Norwegian – Black (Top)
Classification: DUAL-COATED Nice and clean combed top. Norwegian sheep come in a range of tones, this top being a very dark brown with traces of grey hairs combed through. Like Icelandic, this is best used for rugged outerwear. Micron count is hard to determine on double-coated blends. The staple length for this top is 4 to 6 inches. We can't find information on the felting properties, but since Icelandic felts so well there may be possibilities with Norwegian.
