Tongue River Lopi is a soft bulky singles of 100% Icelandic Sheep Wool. The gauge is 3 1/2 stitches to the inch; 480 yards in a pound. It is warm, light, long wearing, and water resistant. Spun of the dual coated fleece, the outer fibers (tog) provide loft, wear resistance and luster. The undercoat (thel) is fine, provides warmth and softness. When spun together the blend is somewhat like a wool mohair blend. The yarn is fairly non elastic, drapes well and wont stretch out. In fact I have many people call who have Icelandic sweaters made with Lopi that they have had for 20 Years and it still look great and is their favorite.
