We love Lopi, the traditional yarn of Iceland. Available in a selection of several weights from Bulky to Lace, we stock the medium weight Lett-Lopi (also called Lopi Lite), perfect for Vancouver's moderate climate. Weightless, warm and hard-wearing, Lett-Lopi comes in a beautiful array of colours, making it a great choice for fair isle and traditional icelandic projects.

Icelandic sheep have changed little from sheep brought to Iceland by the Viking settlers over 1100 years ago. They are possibly the oldest and purest breed of domestic sheep in the world today. More information here.
