Icelandic wool is different from most wools in that it has two distinct fibres: one fibre that is long-stapled and with a sheen that repells water, and one that is soft, insulating, and provides an astounding degree of warmth. Léttlopi is an authentic Icelandic yarn spun to a worsted weight, and is perfect for creating durable outer garments that will keep you warm in even the coldest of winters. Rustic and honest, it comes in a beautiful palette of traditional colours, which can be used to make beautiful colourwork sweaters and accessories. Because of its wooly nature, it felts beautifully.
