Istex Alafosslopi is wool from Iceland. The traditional Icelandic yoke cardigans and pullovers look fresh as ever, and with the original, rustic Icelandic wool you can make an authentic Lopapeysa.

Ístex Alafosslopi is thicker than Lettlopi. It is excellent for outdoor knitwear. Wear it on a hike, or when cranberry picking or just while watching the kids play in the park.

The Icelandic wool is like no other, long fibers make the knitted garment water resistant while the short ones insulate and keep you warm.

Alafosslopi has an outstanding variety of colors. Natural undyed shades accompanied with both bright and muted colors are inspired by the Northern landscape. This yarn is made for stranded knitting and colorwork (go on and try steeking, too, if you haven't yet!). Lopi felts also well.

The yarn feels rustic, even coarse, and the wool might feel itchy next to skin for some, but we encourage you to give Alafosslopi a try. The knitted fabric softens and relaxes after the first wash and when worn. Icelandic wool produces, breathable, water-repellent and durable knitwear that will last for decades.

A medium-sized cardigan needs approximately 700 g of Alafosslopi. Two balls make a hat or a pair of mittens, one ball a pair of kids' mitts.

Care: Airing in fresh outdoor air helps the wool clean itself. If you want wash off visible dirt, use cold water and detergent suitable for water. Lay flat to dry.
