Description

Plotulopi

Dive into the rich tapestry of Icelandic heritage with Istex Lopi's Plotulopi yarn, a true testament to the timeless art of crafting and knitting. This extraordinary yarn, like a cherished heirloom, holds within its threads the secrets of a thousand years of tradition and innovation.

Plotulopi is unique among yarns, presenting itself in an unspun, delicate state, ready for your creative touch. As you hold it in your hands, you'll feel the whisper of the Icelandic wilderness, the story of hardy sheep and the rugged landscapes they call home. This delicate single-ply yarn is wonderfully versatile, allowing you to explore an array of projects, from ethereal lace shawls to sturdy, textured sweaters.

What makes Plotulopi truly special is its captivating connection to Iceland's rich knitting history. The yarn's authenticity is undeniable, embodying the very essence of Icelandic wool. The fibers include the inner, soft "þel" and the outer, weather-resistant "tog," seamlessly blending strength and comfort, as only Icelandic wool can.

Plotulopi's color range is a vibrant tribute to Iceland's natural beauty, with a spectrum of earthy tones and frosty blues. Each shade reflects the breathtaking landscapes and pristine waters of this captivating island. It is a canvas on which to paint your creativity and weave the stories of Iceland's majestic terrain into your creations.

While Plotulopi stands in a category of its own, it shares kinship with other unspun Icelandic wool yarns, like Bulky Lopi and Alafosslopi, making it perfect for combining with them to explore textural contrasts and design possibilities.

Whether you're fashioning a lacy dream or a cozy, rustic sweater, Plotulopi yarn will be your loyal companion on this journey of creative exploration. Unleash your imagination and embrace the legacy of Icelandic knitting, where every stitch echoes with tradition and natural beauty, all held within the delicate embrace of Plotulopi.

How to Use Plötulopi

Plötulopi is unspun wool (pencil roving) and is traditionally used to make authentic Icelandic Lopi sweaters. Plötulopi is mostly knitted using two or three strands, resulting in garments that are exceptionally light and airy. Plötulopi is surprisingly strong once knitted thanks to the unique characteristics of Icelandic wool.

Gently wind the required number of strands of Plötulopi together or knit straight from the plates.  A single strand of Plötulopi is very delicate. It can be strengthened by twisting it lightly or by knitting it with one strand of Einband. Plötulopi is great for felting, hand spinning and many other things.
