This yarn is also sometimes called “Unspun Icelandic” and is the yarn sold by Schoolhouse Press.

From Istex: Plötulopi can be worked one, two or more ply at a time, depending on how bulky a yarn you want. Gently wind the required number of strands together into a ball by taking the end from the centre and the end from the outside of the plate, or plates. Plötulopi is very fragile to knit. We recommend the continental knitting technique as it permits control with very loose tension. 

Since Plötulopi is an unspun yarn, it is fragile to knit; however, due to the length of its fibres, it knits into a sweater that is both sturdy and soft.  

Gauge-1 ply: 19 sts to 10 cm (4”) over St st using size 4½ mm (Old UK 7) (US 7).
Gauge-2 ply: 14 sts to 10 cm (4”) over St st using size 5½ mm (Old UK 5) (US 9).

100% new wool. Unspun yarn, sold by weight as a one-ply, flat round roll, called a "plate".
