Prairie Wool Lopi Soft Spun 100% wool yarn has excellent wear characteristics and durability. The soft spun yarns are strands of carded wool spun with a twist rather than spun and plied, giving them a unique, lofty yet strong quality. Prairie Wool Lopi Soft Spun yarn is a 3-strand soft spun yarn. It is commonly used for Icelandic style sweaters, as the weft in a weave, or with a chunky knitting machine.
This medium to bulky weight yarn can vary greatly in colour from one dyelot to another. Please ensure you order enough yarn to complete your project.
