Grýla Tvíband & Artisanal: 100% new Icelandic wool & lambswool, plied lace, 2-ply

Grýla is a rare Icelandic 2-ply lace yarn with an exquisite halo, inspired by the Old handspun yarns. Made from pure Icelandic sheep wool, specially selected for its quality, it is plied which makes it particularly sturdy and perfect for knitting hardwearing accessories such as mittens. Washing softens the wool considerably and adds a lovely bloom to the delightful colors inspired by Icelandic nature. You can read more about the making of Grýla here.

Grýla Tvíband is spun in Italy with high quality Icelandic sheep wool, whereas Grýla Tvíband Artisanal is made in a minimill in Belgium with specially selected lambswool: it is therefore very soft but a bit irregular, more like a handspun yarn.

Natural lamb colors



Grýla Tvíband comes into a range of 9 colors: 7 shades inspired by the Icelandic plants and landscape, plus white and black. The colors are dyed with ecological dyes and mix beautifully with the natural sheep colors. Grýla Tvíband Artisanal is available into three natural lamb colors: black, brown and white. Because it is an artisanal production and only natural colors, it is a bit irregular and the quantity are limited but the lambswool is much softer and a perfect match with Grýla Tvíband.

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.
