EINRÚM E by Kristin Brynja is a design improving Icelandic wool by mixing it with 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.
EINRÚM E is Einband by Ístex (light fingering, 70 % Icelandic wool, 30% other wool) 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.
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 dark brown) together with 2 or 4 threads of white, brown, grey, copper or black Thai silk. The difference between some of the shades is quite subtle. The more vivid colors are obtained by dyeing the mixed thread: the tweed effect is due to the fact that the wool and the silk don’t take the dye in the same manner.
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.
