There seems to be a resurrgence of interest in Lopi yarns. Most new knitters are not aware of Lopi which fueled our knitting passion years ago, with lots of colours and patterns. Lopi is an interesting fibre and is unique in its composition, Icelandic wool consists of two types of fibres - an inner fibre which is insulating and the outer fibres which are water-repellent. Together, these two distinctive fibres create a wool that is: lighter than most other wools, keeps you warm and comfortable, repels rain and stays feeling dry and the moisture passes through the fibres away from the skin, keeping you dry and comfortable. When washed the wool becomes softer and softer.The Loom carries Alafoss, a bulky weight, Lopi Lite, a worsted weight, and Einband, a lace weight.
The pattern would be great using Alafoss, I call it a Shoulder Shawl and it takes about 200 yards, using a bulky yarn, such as Crystal Palace, Iceland, Lopi Alafoss, Nova or Mochi Chunky or blend some of your stash...
Cast on on 40 stitches on 6 mm needles
k2 p2 until all the yarn is used, twist and join
There are Iceland sheep in the valley I believe and I now want to spin it!!!
