EINRÚM by Kristin Brynja is a design improving Icelandic wool made of lopi and thai silk. Twinned together, the result is an incredibly soft and airy yarn, as light as the unspun Icelandic yarns and as strong as the silk. It comes in an array of earthy colors obtained by mixing natural wool colors with 2 or 4 threads of silk.
EINRÚM E is Einband from Ístex (100% wool – 70% Icelandic, light fingering weight) twinned together with 2 threads (E+2) or 4 threads (E+4) of Thai silk. When twinned, the Einband opens up and the result feels pretty much like the unspun plötulopi but very strong. Used with bigger needles, Einrúm E will make for an extremely light, airy garment, yet hardwearing.
EINRÚM L is Léttlopi from Ístex (100% new wool, aran weight) twinned together with 2 threads (L+2) or 4 threads (L+4) of thai silk. Twinned in the opposite direction, the result stays of a similar weight to the Léttlopi alone, but squishier and mostly softer thanks to the silk. Einrúm L can thus be used instead of the Léttlopi for a much softer touch.
