Léttlopi, litteraly “light Lopi”, is half the weight of the Álafoss lopi. It is made of two strands of unspun lopi slightly twisted together. This makes it less breakable than the single Plötulopi strand. It is probably the most versatile yarn in temperate climates to knit Icelandic sweaters and accessories that you can wear both outdoors and indoors. It is for example the yarn used to knit the popular sweaters Brynja or Fimmvörðuháls.
