Lett-Lopi by Istex

Today we were organizing our new shipment of Lett-Lopi or Lopi Lite, a worsted weight version of the well known Icelandic wool. This wool is unique in its composition as it consists of two types of fibers:  inner fibers which are fine, soft and highly insulating and outer fibers which are long, glossy and water repellent. Together these fibers create a wool that is lightweight, water-repellent and breathable. It can be used to knit traditional Icelandic colourwork garments such as the Istex 20th Anniversary Sweater, a free pattern for the whole family (see below). We are awaiting Kate Davies new book “Yokes” which features a number of designs using Lett-Lopi ,and we have made sure to have all the colours she uses in stock. We now have over 25 colours and for those of you who may wish to plan a project, here are the colours we presently have in stock: 5, 51, 52, 54, 56, 58, 86, 867, 1402, 1405, 1406, 1407, 1410, 1411, 1413, 1420, 9414,  9417, 9418, 9419, 9421, 9426, 9427, 9431, 9432, 9434
