Lopalopi KIT

From  45,29

Lopalopi is a different chunky sweater with the shape of an oversized rose with arms, inspired by the motif on a pair of old Icelandic shoe-inserts. Big and cosy but nevertheless light, it will keep you very warm against the elements. I remained true to the original colour schemes of the inserts from the Textile Museum in Blönduós. and the traditional methods used in making them: Icelandic intarsia, i.e. intarsia knitting with garter stitch, a technique unique to Iceland.

FOR THE MONTH OF FEBRUARY AND MARS 2019 all proceeds from the PATTERN and 20% from the KIT go to The Supportive Skein (L’Écheveau solidaire) to raise money for medical research against Fibrous Dysplasia, a rare genetic disorder that causes pain, fractures and deformity in the bones and has no cure yet. The organisation of the designers/dyers challenge was started by a French knitter and mother of a little girl with Fibrous Dysplasia.
