Strokkur



This jumper arrived in the post!  A very generous gift from Anne*.

It's knitted in Lettlopi using Ysolda Teague's Strokkur pattern.  Pattern is available to buy on Ravelry and in the shop.

It's a relatively simple garment knit - it's seamless with limited shaping.  The bold yoke would be ideal for beginners in stranded colourwork.  The aran weight yarn means it knits quite quickly too!


We have a lot of colours in Lettlopi...


and a bundle of pattern ideas on Ravelry

*Anne, please get in touch so I can thank you personally!

Bassenfell Shawl



This asymmetrical shawl is knitted in one of our newest yarns, Fibre Co. Cumberia Fingering.

Bassenfell features a gorgeous (and easy) i cord edge and an easy (and beautiful cluster stitch)!

Pattern is by Clare Devine and available to buy on Ravelry (or in the shop through Ravelry in-store pattern sales)

Yarn is available in the shop too!  In 9 shades...

Carbeth Cardigan in Rowan Felted Tweed DK



Kate Davies' Carbeth sweater and cardigan appeared to cause a mass cast on earlier this year, so we've naturally jumped on the bandwagon and made one for the shop!

I've used Rowan Felted Tweed DK in two shades of purple, holding two strands together.

If you have a look through the projects listed on Ravelry you can see how versatile this seamless pattern is.

It's easy to change the length of the body (it's written as a cropped length) and the sleeves.  How about adding some shaping (it's a boxy shape) or stripes to destash.

We've got over 10 shades of Rowan Felted Tweed  in the shop, lots of lovely combos in you like the marled look.

You can buy the pattern on Ravelry yourself or in the shop.

Lettlopi in the shop!



Classic Icelandic wool in an aran/worsted weight.

13 shades in stock including popular greys and browns as well as popping brights.

We've created a pattern bundle on Ravelry for some inspiration.

For a shop sample I've cast on a Strokkur jumper by Ysolda Teague but I'd love to do some slippers too!
