Einrúm: lopi + silk

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.

Colors

The EINRÚM colors are obtained by mixing natural lopi wool colors (natural white, light grey and natural black - which is more like a very deep and dar brown) together with 2 or 4 threads of white, brown, grey or black Thai silk. The difference between some of the shades is quite subtile. Click on the pictures above to see them bigger.

Please note that the colors shown are as closed as they can be from the real colors but there can be variations from one monitor to another.
