Spun from hardy Icelandic wool, Léttlopi yarn is perfect for sweaters that can be worn indoors and out like the traditional Lopi sweater or lopapeysa. Léttlopi yarn has a lofty construction that traps insulating air, knits beautifully, and is practically waterproof. It's not the softest yarn, but I've found I can comfortably wear my lopapeysa over a short-sleeved tee with no itch (you may feel differently).
Sheep were first brought to the small island of Iceland by Viking settlers in 874 AD and have provided a source of livelihood for the people of Iceland ever since. Iceland's remote location and an embargo on bringing livestock to the island have resulted in a unique dual-coated breed of Icelandic sheep. During the warmer months the sheep are given free range of the island, then a large community of Icelanders comes together to herd the sheep to shearing and warm stables for winter.
