I enjoy working with this yarn. A little imperfections in the thickness and coarseness before I wash it takes me back to my grandmas village. It has a rustic feel to it but so warm and light. The colors are gorgeous: very natural, very soft, working beautifully with each other. I love the mohair like halo of the finished and washed project. I can't stop knitting Icelandic sweaters for everyone In my family.
I knit and crochet with Lett-lopi and I like the way Icelandic wool is lightweight, warm, and waterproof. If it is really feeling cold this is the wool I use to warm-up quickly.
Love Deramores for my knitting hobby!!
I used this yarn to make felted slippers and it worked great!
The Lopi yarn is excellent and Deramores always provides great service and pricing!
