Ístex Lopi yarns are known for being great in sweaters and cardigans—all Lopi yarns are spun from Icelandic sheep, which have dual coats to help them keep warm on the frigid North Atlantic island nation. The yarns combine the fibers from both coats, resulting in a yarn that is exceptional at repelling water and keeping the wearer warm. Perfect recipe for success, especially if you live in colder climates!
Einband has all of those qualities in a laceweight yarn that is traditionally worked on larger needles, think US size 5 or 6. This creates an open, airy fabric that still keeps you warm, as heat is trapped by the fibers (similar to down feathers). Einband is perfect for lightweight garments and accessories, and for warmer weather, as well!
