Léttlopi is an aran weight yarn that comes from Istex in Iceland, which has a rich and colourful knitting history. Léttlopi is a single ply, fluffy, rustic yarn that comes in an extensive palette of natural colours and shades inspired by the rugged Icelandic landscape. The wool in Léttlopi comes from the Icelandic sheep, a rare breed that developed in isolation on the island, resulting in a fascinating dual coat with sturdy outer fibres to repel weather and super soft inner coat that keeps you toasty warm.
Léttlopi is a lightweight yarn perfect for colourwork and contemporary knitting projects. Tracy used Léttlopi for her Big Love cardigan, and Amanda used it to knit a more traditional lopapeysa called Gamaldags.
