We tried to illustrate the colours as exactely as possible. But on a website this colour representation is quite difficult and depends on many factors. Therefore the shade can slightly differ from the original.
Lopi yarn is woven from the wool of the islandic sheep, a globally unique breed that lives in Iceland for over 1000 years and has adapted to the subpolar climate of the island.
The icelandic wool is unique in its quality. It consists of two types: the long outer fibres, on which the rain rolls off and the fine soft, well-insulating inner fibres. Both of them are processed into the original icelandic wool and create a yarn that is lightweight, efficient in its usage, wonderful warming and water-repellent. The garments are pleasantly comfortable to wear. Icelandic wool has natural thermo-regulating characteristics and is a renewable resource.
Lopi is offered in different thread sizes, so you can knit thicker outdoor sweaters as well as thinner knitwear and lace scarves.
