Add a touch of luxury to your kit with a skein or three of Einrúm, Icelandic wool plied with pure Thai Mulberry Silk, for a lustrous pop of colour. We love using beautiful Einrúm as a complementary colour against the more affordable Léttlopi.

If you're feeling adventurous these kits make a great sweater yoke too. An excellent sturdy yarn for seasoned colourwork knitters but also perfect for beginners curious about creating colourful knits. In Aran weight, your yoked sweater will knit up quickly and be ready to wear in no time!

"I fell in love with Icelandic wool, and the ubiquitous Lopapeysa sweater's knit in it, the first time I visited Iceland. The magic of this wiry, slightly crunchy fibre isn't obvious at first glance, but wear a Lopi sweater on a damp, chilly morning and you'll soon realise why they're so popular. The Icelandic sheep has a double coat, with longer, coarser fibres that keep out the wind and the rain, and softer, fluffier fibres that trap air close to the skin. What applies to the sheep also applies to anything you knit in Lopi: spun together those two fibres work in harmony to make a lightweight, breathable garment with fantastic heat retention. I don't live in Iceland, but the climate on the Scottish coast can be just as damp and windy, and I wear my Létt Lopi (the lighter and more versatile of the Lopi yarns) sweaters all year long. I love to pull one on after a swim in the sea!" - Ysolda
