Leit Lopi is for all those who love Icelandic knitwear with its bright colour work yokes. This is not a next to the skin soft yarn but it is a light, single plied DK to Aran wight yarn made from Icelandic wool which makes beautiful lightweight colour work yoked sweaters and cardigans.
Because this yarn creates such a coherent fabric it is the perfect candidate for steeked sweaters which, for the uninitiated means cutting fabric knit in the round for ease to make cardigans, arm and neck openings. Sounds alarming but much easier than it sounds!
