Plötulopi is unspun wool from Istex. This yarn is traditionally used to make authentic Icelandic Lopi sweaters. Plötulopi is mostly knitted using two or three strands, since the yarn itself is fragile. The resulting garments are light and airy.

Do not pull the yarn when knitting, instead “help” the yarn to flow gently from the plates. You can knit straight from the plate or wind the required yarns together. Once knitted the texture will be firm, thanks to the unique characteristics of Icelandic wool. 

Plötulopi is also great for felting and hand spinning.

Care instructions: Airing and gentle hand wash. Dry flat.
