Istex Alafosslopi is s bulky-weight Iceland wool.  Icelandic wool is like no other, long fibers make the knitted garment water resistant while the short ones insulate and keep you warm. 

Ístex Alafosslopi is thicker than Lettlopi. It is excellent for outdoor knitwear. The traditional Icelandic yoke cardigans and pullovers look fresh as ever, knit your own Lopapeysa.

Alafosslopi has an outstanding variety of colors. Natural undyed shades accompanied with both bright and muted colors are inspired by the Northern landscape. This yarn is made for stranded knitting and colorwork (great for steeking too!)  Lopi felts also well.

The yarn feels rustic, even coarse, and the wool might feel itchy next to skin for some. The knitted fabric softens and relaxes after the first wash and when worn. 

A medium-sized cardigan needs approximately 700 g of Alafosslopi. Two balls make a hat or a pair of mittens, one ball a pair of kids' mitts.
