Come in and check out Plötulopi: this yarn is also known as “unspun Icelandic". Milled in Iceland from Icelandic sheep, Plötulopi is an unspun, singles yarn that is loosely wound up into a flat round roll, called a "plate". Plötulopi can be worked as a single-, double- or triple-strand, depending on how bulky you would like your yarn. Try Plötulopi in your next colorwork project or for warm and weatherproof outerwear. @cynthia.hyslop is using it (single stranded) in Cartography by @tincanknits and Amaris (@catfreecatlady) made Dreyma by Jennifer Steingass (@knit.love.wool). It's a warm and lofty sweater yarn with a lovely Icelandic halo.

This is Sandi P wearing a Zoe by Alexandra Davidoff (pattern available on Ravelry.) She made it from Shibui Baby Alpaca (which is discontinued). We would suggest trying it in Handmaiden Cashmere 4Ply!

Sample It for December!
.
This month we feature @rowanyarns Big Wool —a very popular yarn with designers and makers alike. Enjoy 10 % off this yarn as our way of encouraging you to sample it and see if you like it as much as we do! Made from 100% merino wool, Big Wool is wonderful for cabled pieces and designs with stitch textured effects. This super chunky yarn is also ideal for those wanting a quick-to-knit project and is well suited to accessories and in particular, wintry pieces. With 100 grams and 80 meters per ball you can make a hat with 1 ball, a baby sweater or long scarf with 3 balls and a chunky blanket or long sleeve sweater (approx size 36-38) with 10 balls.
