About Icelandic Wool / Lopi Yarn:
Icelandic wool consists of two types of fiber. The inner fiber is fine, soft, and warm and the outer fiber is long, glossy and water-repellent. Together this combination is lightweight and warm as well as water-repellent and breathable, keeping you dry and comfortable.
Icelandic wool is a natural product created on environmentally friendly principles. Care is taken throughout the manufacturing process. Only natural energy sources such as geo-thermal and hydroelectric power are used in the production of Icelandic wool, while the sheep from which the wool is harvested still graze freely in summer, as they have always done.
Most adult sweaters in this book are written for sizes XS - 2XL. Kid's sizes are written for 74cm - 92cm. Baby sizes range from 62-74cm.
