Álafosslopi Yarn 0008 Light Denim Heather
Álafosslopi, made from 100% pure Icelandic wool, is a robust yarn with a lightweight, breathable structure. Ideal for outdoor garments and accessories as the long fibers aid in water resistance, and the shorter fibers will insulate to keep you warm! It works up quickly with its chunky size.
The original company, Álafoss, was established in 1896, marking the start of Iceland's wool industry. The original factory building in Mosfellsbær (just 15 minutes from Reykjavík) now houses the Álafoss wool store. All Lopi yarn is still produced and spun in Iceland under the current company Ístex. All dyes meet the OEKO-TEX 100 standard.
