Love Story is an exceptional lace yarn created by Hélène Magnússon. It is a very fine 1 ply lace weight yarn made of soft Icelandic lambswool carefully selected by Hélène from Icelandic sheep farmers. Love Story knits beautifully into very delicate and ethereal lace shawls and reminds of the Old handspun yarns that Icelandic lace is known for.
Icelandic wool being composed of two very different types of hair, the long and coarse tog and the fine and short þel, it is a challenge to spin it into such a fine yarn. Because there is no mill in Iceland capable of producing a yarn of this quality, the wool is sent to a specialized mill in Italy where it is spun, with love…

Love Story comes in 20 colors: five natural colors of the Icelandic lamb, white, black (a very dark brownish), brown, light brown and grey; and 15 dyed colors that remind the colors of the Icelandic landscape. The sheep colors being completely natural, note that there maybe be slight variations from one lot to the other.

Love Story from Hélène Magnússon, 100% new wool, 100% Icelandic lambswool, fine lace weight, 1 ply, 25 g skein = 225 m/ 246 yds
