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.

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 and no mill in Iceland seems able to do it, which is why the fleeces are sent to specialty mills in Biella, Italy.

Love Story knits beautifully into very delicate and ethereal lace shawls and reminds of the Old handspun yarns that Icelandic lace is known for.

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.
