Love Story Artisanal is a rare yarn created by Hélène Magnússon. It is a very fine 1 ply lace weight yarn made of soft Icelandic lambswool carefully selected by Hélène from Icelandic farmers. Love Story knits beautifully into very delicate and ethereal lace shawls and reminds of the Old handspun yarns that Icelandic lace is known for.
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 mini-mill in Belgium where it is spun. It thus qualifies as a handmade yarn, is slightly irregular and the quantity are limited.
