I just finished this lopi-sweater for my older one, Bidenam. It´s the second time I knit this pattern and I really like it. The fun thing about lopi-sweaters is, how different one pattern can look, depending on the colours you choose.
Details: pattern: "Barnapeysa með hettu" (click here) yarn: léttlopi; colour: my own, brown from lichen (skófir) and yellow from alchemilla vulgaris (Maríustakkur).
And of course, I just LOVE the icelandic wool, that has some really special characteristics. It consists of 2 different types of fibres:
inner fibres: insulating - fine, soft, highly insulating.
outer fibres - water-repellent: long, glossy, water-repellent.
Together, these two distinctive fibres create a wool that is lightweight - lighter than most other wools, keeps you warm and comfortable
water-repellent - repels rain and stays feeling dry.
Breathable - moisture passes through the fibres away from the skin, keeping you dry and comfortable.
But anyway, here is B´s new lopi-sweater:
