Einband lace weight wool.
100% wool. 50g/1.76oz, aprox. 225m/250yd.
2.5-8mm./US 1.5-11

Einband is great for shawls, mittens and light sweaters. It knits up nicely in lace projects and is warm but very light.

The Icelandic wool is really kind of special. The breed of sheep around here is very old, got isolated at the time of the settlement, around the year 874. So these furry creatures have remained the same ever since. The wool has two different types of fibers, þel (pronounced thel, with the “th”sound as in thorough), which is the warm, soft, isolating stuff closest to the body and tog, the long water repellent fibers on the surface. So the wool has unique qualities being warm, soft, very light and water repellent at the same time.

For other colors than listed on Etsy, please look at the Einband lace weight color card and make a custom order by e-mail to sales[at] For bigger orders, contact us by e-mail to sales[at] for prices.
