Icelandic Lopi Wool Yarn

Yarn line #019

Icelandic Lopi Wool Yarn description:

Lopi – the very word conjures up images of traditional yoked sweaters in natural colors. But take a closer look at this yarn! Lopi isn't so traditional anymore. A wide array of contemporary colors makes it perfect for today's styles.

- traditional Icelandic • a lightly spun single ply yarn

- nearly instant gratification!

- Lopi sweaters keep you warm on the coldest winter days

- a favorite for knitting oversize and felting

Knitters:

Traditionally knit ”in-the-round”, Icelandic pullovers and cardigans are fast and easy projects. Leftovers are great for making hats and mittens. For a fun project, knit your piece oversized and then try felting to create extra warm and durable garments and accessories.

Weavers:

It's suitable for weft but not warp since it is too loosely spun

- great for blankets, jackets, shawls, and wall hangings

- works well as a twill threading with Harrisville Highland, Bartlett worsted, or Peace Fleece at 6-10 epi (Use a 1 up 3 down tie-up so the Lopi will sit on the surface and show off. weave 1-3 tabby shots between Lopi wefts to create a firm backing.)

Lopi is a little too soft to use as a warp, but it makes a great weft for blankets, jackets and shawls, as well as wall hangings.

This is a great way to combine texture with color and weave effects.

Care: Hand wash cool water or dry clean
