Léttlopi (Lite Lopi) Icelandic Wool Yarn description:
Icelandic wool yarns are known for their warmth, breathability and water-repellency. Classic fair isle knitting looks stunning with Icelandic Léttlopi. It's a lighter, worsted weight version of the ever popular bulky weight Alafoss Lopi. Ideal for warm and resilient garments that will stand the test of time. This softly spun 100% Icelandic wool looks like a single ply, however it is really a loosely twisted plied yarn which gives it extra strength while retaining the rustic look. Léttlopi enjoys the unique quality of combining two types of fiber; fine, highly insulating inner fibers and longer, water-repellent outer fibers. Great for felting. Weavers will find it too softly spun for a traditional high-tension warp, however it can be used with care and it makes a great weft for blankets and throws.
