I was excited this yarn was part of the April Anniversary Sale. I love working with single ply yarn, and I've been trying to find a new love ever since Cascade yarns discontinued their soft spun and pastanza lines. Alafosslopi almost fits the bill. The colors are absolutely beautiful and it knits up quickly and smoothly. It is a little corse, but softens up when knit, and I'm sure will become even softer over time. And although corse, it is not unpleasant to work with. I did need to pull some straw from the fibers every once and awhile, but that didn't bother me. Overall, the pros outweigh the cons, and I would definitely buy this yarn again.

I used approximately 14 balls to knit a 4.5'x6' color work afghan.

Very pretty color, feels very rough

I bought this online based on the color and weight, but when it arrived, the color was gorgeous, but the feeling was very rough. I sent it back.

Love Lopi yarn!

By Karen

from Maine

Verified Buyer

Pros

  • Good Weight
  • Knits Quickly

Cons

  • Itchy - Outer Layer

Best Uses

  • Sweaters

Comments about �lafosslopi (Lopi):

This yarn is good as an outer layer. Would not use for a young child as it does have the itch factor. In saying that - it is a beautiful warm wool that knits up fast and looks great on any Icelandic pattern.

    Comments about �lafosslopi (Lopi):

    Knits up easy. A little hard to slip over my knitters pride carbonz but a measure to work with. Very warm. You can actually smell a little sheep on it! It sheds a little bit it is exactly what I expect from high end Iclandic wool. I liked it so much I bought another round for an extra sweater!

    Service and delivery comments:

    Had a delivery snafu due to an error on the shipping address ( probably my fault). Customer service was outstanding in every respect! I work in retail and know how important good CS is to a buyer. These guys have it down! I highly recommend them for their great selection and awesome service! Thanks.

                This is used for troop helmet liners. Wool is required and this slight irregular color flecks make this desirable. The extra weight and bulk will make this a desirable winter item for them.
