Love Story, 100% pure Icelandic lambswool, very soft fine lace weight, 1 ply

Love Story 100% pure Icelandic lambswool, is an exceptional lace yarn created by Hélène Magnússon. It is a very fine 1 ply lace weight yarn made of very soft Icelandic lambswool. The wool comes from the first shearing of the lambs and is carefully selected by Hélène from Icelandic sheep farmers for its softness. 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 specialized mill in Italy where it is spun, with love…
