Color card is for Einband, a very similar (possibly the same base) yarn with a different label. This version is discontinued.

Single ply Icelandic wool from Iceland, imported to the US by Westminster Fibers. Known as “eingirni” in Iceland.

Over 40 colors. Dedicated pattern book available.

Unlike other Lopi yarns, this is spun only from the undercoat, so it softens significantly after washing. A gauge swatch in the intended pattern, washed and dried, is absolutely required.

As is true of most laceweights, gauge and needle size will vary with the project.

The yardage for this yarn seems to vary. On some it says 250 m and on others 225 m per 50 g.
