I have about 5 skeins (I think) of Lopi from www.customwoolenmills.com What can I do with it? It's actually made from merino so it's soft - not traditional Lopi but I think it's single ply (possibly?). Thanks in advance!

How about a comfy poncho or wrap? I'm thinking these are small skeins, like 100 yd? That would be more than enough. What you have left over, how about some easy dog sweaters (http://www.knittinghelp.com/knitting/forum/viewtopic.php?t=25850) :) I'm making these in a weekend, and I'm not that fast of a knitter.

Thanks for the ideas Lu! I may just do a wrap... Your dog sweater looks great but my pup is too big - he'd take up a couple skeins! He's an 80 lb chocolate labrador retriever! And also, he doesn't need a sweater - he's built for the cold. Good idea though and your's looks so cute!

Anyone else have some ideas?

LOL, yeah, your baby doesn't need a sweater :roflhard: .......well, I suppose it depends on where you live.

You have the Lopi that comes in 100gram balls and is kinda bulky? Maybe you could make something felted with it, like a bag? And a hat with the leftovers? I think Lopi is too scratchy for something you have to wear next to the skin.

Thanks! This Lopi is actually pretty soft. I'm planning a "felting" test though cuz this is the natural color and I'm not sure if that will felt. I've read that white lopi won't.
