I bought this yarn for a Craftsy class "Top Down Icelandic Sweater". I wanted other colors than those offered for sale with the class. Webs offered plenty of colors. And when buying the amount needed for the sweater it came along with a fantastic discount. I saved over $15.00! It was also shipped very quickly for free. I will be back for more and highly recommend this company. No regrets!

I thought I would have problems knitting with this highly textured wool. I didn't have any at all. Frogging out stitches to fix a row or two did take a little finessing, but it wasn't the hardest I have come across. One plus to the wool is that when my needles slipped out of about 15/20 stitches, it was really easy to pick them back up. They didn't run at all, they just sat there waiting for me to notice.

After washing and blocking, the sweater really softened up a lot. Don't get me wrong, you won't get this confused with Merino. It isn't that soft, but it doesn't feel like a relative to Brillo anymore. I have heard from others that each wash will continue to soften it up.

The colorwork with this yarn is really nice and even. I was very happy that it turned out as nice as it did. I am now on my second sweater and loving this yarn even more. It is also really easy to spit splice and so I have almost no yarn ends to weave in.

My First Icelandic Sweater

I used this to make an Icelandic sweater. I liked that it is true Icelandic wool. There were some breaks in the wool and the join was not well done.

      I bought this yarn to make a poncho and I think it's going to turn out very nice. I am a novice knitter and I find Lopi Lettlopi easy to knit with. It does shed, but I have found that most wool yarns do. I am presently working with the color black and I'm looking forward to trying the same yarn in a brighter color soon.

        I used this yarn to knit a pullover with stranded colorwork at the neck yoke. It was my first time to use such a heavy-gauge yarn in colorwork, but I found it knit easily and quickly. I enjoyed it immensely, and plan to buy more for more colorwork knitting projects.

              It was so itchy that the fibers actually poked through my blouse and scratched me. I tried washing and conditioning the vest I made for my niece in expensive shampoo and conditioner. It was still just as scratchy as the one I made for myself. I don't know what I would use this yarn for. Maybe a rug. Definitely not an article of clothing.

                Great warm light feeling sweater. Don't sweat. Easy care of sweater - use Woolite Dry Clean sheets in dryer if problem but usually just air sweater. The sweaters last years. makes beautiful patterns in Fair Isle. Love this wool and Alafossi too.

                Comments about L�ttlopi (Lite Lopi):

                Lettlopi knits up to a very dense, light-weight fabric on US6 needles.

                My only problem with it is that the yarn's twist sometimes relaxes and unwinds such that it's like knitting with raw roving. The yarn doesn't break at that point, but the untwisted section will turn out less smooth in appearance. This has not been a problem for my current project, but might not look as perfect as one might like for a dressier garment.

                  A great yarn for cold, damp climates. Best used as outerwear as the fiber is a bit scratchy for some. The history of the yarn and it's associated designs is what drew me to the product. The company which produces it has a long interesting history.
