Lopi is Icelandic yarn (I just love Icelandic stuff, been there and in love ever since). It's told to be warmer, since Icelandic sheep are more resistant to cold weather. Lopi is brought to US by Reynolds Yarns and they also compiled this book of patterns. You can check it out on reynolds website and other online stores that sell Reynolds. Lopi has a few different weights - Lite (I think it's around worsted/light worsted), Alafoss which is bulkier and maybe something else, can't remember now. I made my hubby socks with Lite Lopi i got in Iceland - here (http://www.knittinghelp.com/knitting/forum/showthread.php?t=57534)

I love Amazon! The only thing on order now is the last Harry Potter book. I should fix that cause I need some new reading material of the knitting variety. :shifty: :teehee:

So glad you got your order. I LOVE Amazon.com. I'm waiting for four books and a DVD to arrive at my door as I type this. :pray:They are the BEST and fast delivery too.
