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.

    My daughter brought me some of this wool when she visited Iceland on a trip. She bought me some, but not enough for the project I envisioned. I couldn't believe it when I found this wool at yarn.com. I got some more and am now knitting a white, blue and grey triangle shawl. It is lovely yarn and gives a very homemade (in a good way) look. My shawl looks like something you would find in a nordic country market fair. I'm very pleased.

      Comments about 5.49 Léttlopi (Lite Lopi):

      Lopi of any weight is made from ICELANDIC SHEEP !!!! They are pure bred, and produce a heavy, scratchy wool. IT IS WHAT IT IS !!! If you want soft wool, buy Merino. I am a great fan of Lopi. I LOVE knitting with it, and I love felting with it. When felted, it makes a really nice dense fabric, with a lovely halo. I especially like bags made of it. Of course, there is no reason to EVER use anything else for Icelandic sweaters. PLEASE, don't buy it, and then complain about how scratchy it is.

        Comments about 5.49 Léttlopi (Lite Lopi):

        I ordered this yarn for an Icelandic sweater I am knitting for my son. I ordered the other colors I needed from another online vendor outside of the US but they did not carry this particular color. This yarn does not feel like the other 14 balls I ordered from the other company. It is coarse, it sheds and the thickness of the yarn changes within the ball. It looks like it is not twisted in some areas. I'm not at all happy with it and just hope it will work out with the other LettLopi (Lopi Lite) yarn I am using. Add to the fact that this yarn was 3 times more expensive than the LettLopi yarn I ordered from the UK.

            if your skin is very sensitive, this yarn would be best as an outer layer. it does soften substantially with washing.

                Made the Stopover sweater from Ravelry with this, turned out beautifully, but two small negatives. It's definitely scratchy wool, I'll need a long-sleeved layering top underneath to be comfortable in it all day. With it being single ply, it did pull apart on me in a couple of places, and a spit splice didn't always hold well, surprisingly given then texture. Finished the sweater just in time to wear on what will likely be the last day where it's cold enough to wear it before putting it up for the spring and summer.

                Wanted to make a true Lopi sweater for a gift. This yarn is the real deal, but not fun to work with. But she loved the sweater! Definitely will be wearing with an under layer- very scratchy.
