Lopi Knitting Wool

Lopi yarn is made from the fleece of Icelandic sheep. Why is that important? Over the centuries, Icelandic sheep wool has evolved to ensure as much protection as possible from the harsh northern climate. Long coarse fibers are insulated by soft short fibers, creating a double-layered and water-resistant yarn that's incredibly versatile. From bulky sweaters to keep warm in the winter months to delicate, lightweight scarves that make you feel beautiful on a summer night, there is a Lopi yarn to fit most patterns. We also offer some Lopi knitting kits that include a pattern along with the yarn needed to complete your project.

Searching for Reynolds knitting yarn, Istex yarn, or Alafoss light wool yarn? If you've previously worked with these brands and are having trouble finding them, that's because they're now known as Lopi. All are the same yarn, made in the same mill in Iceland!
