I use the Icelandic wool in most of my knittings.
Characteristics of Icelandic Wool
Unique in its composition, Icelandic wool consists of two types of fibres:
Inner Fibres - Insulating:
Fine, soft, highly insulating.
Outer Fibres - Water-Repellent:
Long, glossy, water-repellent.
Together, these two distinctive fibres create a wool that is:
Lightweight - lighter than most other wools, keeps you warm and comfortable.
Water-repellent - repels rain and stays feeling dry.
Breathable - moisture passes through the fibres away from the skin, keeping you dry and comfortable.
