Imagine a summerly version of our Dagrenning cardigan with white as the main colour.
Istex offers a free pattern for a children's sweater called Sumargleđi. Unfortunately, the pattern is in Icelandic only but the picture is inspiring.

Dagrenning - a light cardigan
Light weight garments that still benefit from the quality of Lopi yarn have been in high demand for the last months.
"Dagrenning" which means "dawn" is made by combining the soft and warm features of Plötulopi with the strenghts and structure of Einband lace weight yarn - without the heavy or bulky feel of the traditional Icelandic sweater.
Perfect for the Icelandic summer or the time in between seasons in milder climates.

Contact us for more information, to purchase the pattern and/or yarn.

Happy Easter!

The cold season is approaching and Christmas holidays are just a few weeks away. Keep comfortably warm this winter with Icelandic wool!

Our hand made sweaters, hats and mittens ensure a fun time out in the snow. The unique Icelandic wool repels rain and is highly insulating, thus keeps you warm and dry. Our garments are perfect for both, an active day outdoors and cosy times inside.
Have a look around in our collection of hand knitted sweaters and other products made from Icelandic wool like scarfs and blankets.
Is there a better Christmas gift than something to keep you and your loved ones warm in these dreary times?
Last but not least, if you knit yourself, have a look at the latest pattern book Lopi 29 and our range of knitting yarns.
Send us an email to request information on shipping conditions and prices.
