Léttlopi from Ístex: 100% new wool, unspun, Aran weight
From € 3,50
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 popular sweaters like Brynja, Fimmvörðuháls or Gamaldags. Looking for a softer Icelandic alternative to Léttlopi? Read here.

Make your choice among all the 41 Ístex shades but also one extra shades (the old mustard 9264), that I had dyed especially for me. Most of the shades are obtained by carding together different dyed colors. The shades are classified according to the Ístex shade card.
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.
