Gilitrutt Tvíband, 100% new Icelandic lambswool, plied lace weight, 2 ply

Gilitrutt Tvíband is a unique plied lace yarn created by Hélène Magnússon. Just like the very fine Love Story, Gilitrutt  is made of soft Icelandic lambswool carefully selected by Hélène from Icelandic sheep farmers. Gilitrutt is plied making it just as strong as it is soft. It is a similar weight than Grýla Tviband and can be used instead of it to knit strong but extrasoft mittens and shawls. Versatile, it can be knitted on a variety of needle sizes and will make deliciously light sweaters and soft baby garments. 

Icelandic wool being composed of two very different types of hair, the long and coarse tog and the fine and short þel, it is a challenge to spin it into such a fine yarn. Because there is no mill in Iceland capable of producing a yarn of this quality, the wool is sent to a specialized mill in Italy where it is spun, with love…
