Einband is a versatile yarn perfect for delicate projects such as shawls, light garments, and lace knitting. Each strand is strong enough to be used on its own, or multiple strands can be knitted together for extra strength, ideal for projects using unspun wool such as Plötulopi.
The wool from Icelandic sheep comes in many different tones resulting in a beautiful choice of heathered colours. The fleece is dual-coated with both soft and long fibres providing you with warmth, lightness, strength, and protection.
Icelandic sheep spend part of the year roaming free and in the colder months are kept warm and safe on the farms. No mulesing, chemicals, or hormones. The Istex spinning mill is farmer owned.
