For a good value, hard wearing, honest yarn, it is hard to beat Iceland’s Lopi. It comes in loads of colours and weights and the projects produced from it will last. Most importantly, if where you are is as cold as Edinburgh is right now, they will be warm.
We now sell Strokkur kits in the shop, if you want to make one in Ysolda’s original colourway, but here are other ways to use Lopi for Ysolda patterns.
I’m a little in love with these Garter Stitch Mitts by voodikon. Lopi is a heavier weight yarn than was originally used for the pattern but she’s helpfully included some great notes on adjusting the pattern for gauge and fit.
.... And it's a big one! Usually, the sale runs across a set number of days and things get pretty fast paced around here with shipping and customer service emails. With the need to continue to prioritise staff safety and a smaller team than usual, we decided to make this a whole birthday month.
