This month I got icelandic fleece. This is a first for me, seeing something in person that is dual coated.
The dual coated fleece have tog, the longer more wiry outer coat and thel, the undercoat which is much finer and softer.
I’d heard it is fairly easy to separate them if you care to do so, by simply grabbing the tog and the base of the lock. I found that to be the case.
I think for this one I will separate them as this is all new to me and I want to see how each one spins up. However, I’ve heard you can just card it all together and end up with a strong but scratchier yarn. Maybe next time.
