Care instructions: 

Hand wash. Do not use fabric softener! In most cases, ventilation is sufficient for woolen clothing. If necessary, hand wash in lukewarm water (30°C). Soak the sweater for approx. 10 min and then rinse thoroughly with lukewarm water. Gently squeeze most of the water out of the garment. Gently shape the sweater to its dimensions and dry flat, do not hang.

Léttlopi thread is half as strong as Álafosslop and is therefore more suitable for indoor use. The yarn is coarse, but softens a little with use. Icelandic wool is spun from two different fibers, a soft and shorter lower pile and a longer and thicker upper pile. Istex buys wool directly from Icelandic lampreys. <3

This unique combination results in a yarn that is warm and breathable at the same time. The finished sweaters are light and at the same time feel wonderful. If you want a beautiful garment that can withstand the Nordic cold, Léttlopi is your yarn. In addition, there are plenty of beautiful colors to choose from.
