A colorwork lover’s dream, this knitting pattern book features 22 Icelandic designs that showcase Lopi yarns. Spun from 100% Icelandic wool, Lopi creates hand knitting yarns that possess outstanding breathability & thermal insulation. For over 1,000 years, sheep in Iceland have been roaming the sub-arctic climate. Their adaption to the climate has given their wool a distinctive character. The fleece is a combination of inner & outer fibers with the inner fibers being soft & insulating, while the outer fibers are long, durable & weather resistant. Together the fibers create a yarn that is warm & durable.
