The Icelandic Sheep Breeders Of the British Isles is a small, friendly group of individuals. We are scattered all over the UK, from the northern tips of Scotland to southern Cornwall.
We are all happy to help or advise on Icelandic sheep matters, care or breeding.
The first Icelandic sheep were imported into the UK in 1979, and in 1988 the Icelandic Sheep Breeders Of the British Isles (ISBOBI) was founded with the aims of preserving the purity of the breed in the UK and coordinating information about the sheep to breeders and those who are interested in buying them.
The fleeces are used for a wide variety of purposes, they are in great demand by felters and by hand spinners for knitting, crochet and weaving.
