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.

I'm finally getting around to using this yarn for a sweater project, had thought to make it for my daughter but decided it would better make it for myself due to the coarseness of the yarn. I know that it will work up nicely but couldn't imagine dealing with the remarks about it being scratchy. When done, I will take care to soak and treat the finished sweater to soften the yarn. The other thing besides the shedding, the darker yarn had a grainy substance that falls out along with the yarn bits.

          The yarn is coarse, uneven in texture and full of pieces of straw like material. I am sorry I purchased it and would not recommend it to anyone.

              Can't say it's soft (or cuddly), but I wanted to make an Icelandic cardigan I could wear as a coat so I wanted the "real" Icelandic wool. Knits easily and quickly and it's going to be very warm!

                My daughter is spending a season at McMurdo Station, Antarctica. She wanted a real Icelandic sweater, period, and that is what she got! My first one. I also made a hat and two pairs of mittens to go with. She worn everything in her first 24 hours there, and hasn't taken them off, as far as I know. Then I made on for my nephew on his way to Moscow in January...

                I made a pair of slippers which I felted. The yarn is so compact now it would serve as a pair of shoes!! I wouldn't make a garment with it which was close to bare skin as it's pretty scratchy but can see how water or moisture would not penetrate it. Perhaps a jacket would be OK. I'm sure it would be very warm.
