Resumen:

Knitting with Icelandic Wool : One of the best known types of yarn, Icelandic wool or Lopi is used to make sweaters that have a long-lasting and classic appeal. This 100% pure wool yarn is lighter, warmer, and more water-resistant than yarns from elsewhere, as the long-coated native Icelandic sheep have developed over time to ensure as much protection as possible from the harsh northern climate, giving the wool its special properties.

With over sixty-five gorgeous designs, there are patterns for a range of garments for the whole family - from variations on the traditional Icelandic yoked sweaters to smaller projects such as wooly hats, socks, and scarves, to stunning lacy garments and other more contemporary designs - all knit in different weights of Icelandic wool. For all of the patterns complete step-by-step instructions are paired with easy-to-follow lace and color knitting charts, and all the stitches, techniques, and abbreviations you need - including how to work two-color knitting - and more are in the back. Beautifully photographed in Iceland and created in collaboration with Iceland's largest wool manufacturer, Ístex, the book includes a brief history on the emergence of the Icelandic Lopi sweater and the Icelandic wool industry.
