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.

Great Outdoor wear yarn

Comments about Léttlopi (Lite Lopi):

First you need to understand that any Lopi Icelandic wool yarn is meant to be used as an outwear garment. Not to be worn next to your skin. This Icelandic wool will repel moisture and is extremely warm. This is AWESOME fast knitting worsted weight yarn. Creates wonderful sweaters and great as a colorworks project. I have worn my sweater outdoors in single digit weather and have been completely warm.

Comments about Léttlopi (Lite Lopi):

I was not aware how scratdhy this type of yarn is. I am making a sweater but it can not be used next to the skin. I think yarn descriptions should include information about the feel of the yarn. I will use some wool wash when done and hopefully this will soften it up a bit. Also the scratchy feel does not slide nicely through my hands and is a bit irritating.

Okay yarn....shipping not

Comments about Léttlopi (Lite Lopi):

This yarn is great. Wish they had more colors in stock though.

I deducted a star not because of the yarn, but because of the way Yarn.com ships. They ship via USPS but then it takes more than a week to get delivered. I kept getting notifications that is was being delivered but every day it wasn't and when I asked yarn.com for help, all they said was sorry...out of my hands. I did find this same yarn on another site and I can tell you they shipped the same way, but using priority and it was here in under a week.

Love this yarn! It's a work horse, strong and wears well. I used it with a primitive sheep yarn to create a gorgeous Icelandic sweater. The colors are especially beautiful, deep and rich.

Comments about Léttlopi (Lite Lopi):

While knitting with this yarn, I thought it was a little rough, but it was pretty. After the sweater was finished and blocked, I liked this stripe much better than before. It felt much softer and held up well.

Comments about Léttlopi (Lite Lopi):

If you want a slightly less bulky lopi type yarn, this would be the one. A true icelandic wool which is will be warm once knitted up into a project
