Order Deadline Sept 16, 2021
Our Deadline to submit our order for Lopi Blankets is fast approaching! If you’ve had your eye on one (or more) now is the time.
The most common question about Lopi blankets is are they soft? The answer is no, not especially. Icelandic wool is lofty, warm and durable, but softness is not its wheelhouse. I feel like the Lopi blankets are softer than the craft yarn for knitting and crochet – we have a blanket in store if you’d like to touch and see for yourself. If you’ve got a cottage or house that’s constantly cold, you’ll love these blankets, the yarn is an excellent insulator. If you want something beautiful and stylish to throw over a chair or sofa, they are wonderful – they are very grammable and make a gorgeous statement piece for house staging.
Lopi’s ready-made blankets are back! These blankets are gorgeous heirloom pieces, prefect for your home or cottage, ideal in the living room or at the end of the bed, and they also make beautiful gifts. Made of Icelandic wool, they are extremely durable, lightweight, breathable and warm. The fabric is additionally combed after weaving to make it soft. The blankets come in a wide variety of patterns and all are reversible. The offerings are extensive this year with twenty-seven styles available, so there’s something for everyone (I’m partial to the ones with the colour blocks, the monochrome textures and the graphic polka-dots). To see larger images check out the Lopi 2021 Blanket Catalog HERE. We also have a sample in store for you to see and feel.
Please note, these are ready-made blankets, they are not a knitting kit and unfortunately do not come with a stunning landscape as a back-drop.

Icelandic wool has historically been crucial to the survival of the nation as it provided both warmth and protection throughout centuries of harsh weather. It is also quite unique compared to the wool of other sheep breeds. The inner fibres are fine, soft and highly insulating while the outer fibres are long, glossy and water repellent. Therefore products made of Icelandic wool are extremely durable, lightweight and breathable
Ístex Ltd. is the main wool manufacturer in Iceland, with over a century of wool tradition behind their products. They create wool blankets, with narrative threads that weave together a modern sensibility of style, the artistic inspiration of a dramatic landscape and the unique quality of Icelandic yarn.
