Knit your own light, warm garments with lettlopi yarn. It is the key to Icelandic comfort, both indoors and outdoors. This lightweight yarn is incredibly versatile, and it can be used to knit many different clothing items or blankets. Lettlopi wool yarn (spelled as Léttlopi in Icelandic) is approximately half the thickness of heavyweight alafoss lopi. It is worsted medium weight yarn, so we recommend knitting with 4.5mm or 5.5mm needles.
Like all Icelandic yarn, this virgin wool is sheared from a pure breed of sheep that roam freely in the Icelandic highlands and have been kept separate for hundreds of centuries. The inner fiber is fine, soft, and warm while the outer fiber of the wool is longer and naturally water-repellent.
The virgin wool is 100% pure, and it has not been blended with any other fibers. This lettopi yarn is made in Iceland by Istex – the top producer of Icelandic knitting yarn since 1896. We care deeply about preserving the history and heritage of Icelandic knitting and sheep farming. In addition to being OEKO-TEX certified, Istex is also 80% owned by Icelandic farmers.
