. The Icelandic sheep's wool is famous for its felting properties. It produces soft, strong products that can be crafted into anything from hats and masks to purses, slippers, and boots. The Icelandic sheep also grow rapidly, and each year, their fleeces grow three to four pounds bigger than the average breed. The Icelandic wool used in this knitting fabric is 100% Icelandic and is the world's most popular knitting yarn.
The thick, hand-knitted "lopi" sweaters are worn with pride by Icelanders. While many of these sweaters are produced in China, some local manufacturers have successfully outsourced labor to China. Because Chinese sweaters are so cheap, they appeal to tourists. But they are also destroying the local knitting industry. Icelandic sweaters are becoming increasingly difficult to find and fewer local manufacturers are producing them.
The wool used to make these sweaters originates from Iceland, and it has a long, soft fleece with wind hairs and long outer fibres. Because it is unspun, the wool has superior insulating properties and will keep you warm even when it's wet. Lopapeysa is soft and will keep you warm, even when it is wet. And it can even be recycled.
The Icelandic sheep wool is unique and genetically distinct. Its production has changed over the years as companies came and went. Now, over 800,000 Icelandic sheep are sheared annually by 2,000 Icelandic farmers, resulting in an annual wool output of around 750 tonnes of usable wool. With such unique genetics, Icelandic wool is one of a kind. It is not just made in China, but it is also sold around the world.
