TRUNK SHOW Lopi!

Lopi Trunk Show

We just got a trunk show from Lopi in the store! Ever wondered what a Lopi sweater looks and feels like? Well, you can check it out and decide if you’re a Lopi person or not.

What: Real live samples of 12 garments (see below) from Lopi book no. 36. You can look, touch, and try them on.

When: Now until October 14th

Where: Knit-O-Matic, 1382 Bathurst St, Toronto On, during STORE HOURS

Who: Istex Lopi Yarns is located in Iceland and has been manufacturing hand knitting yarns since 1896. Best known for their Álafosslopi yarn the company makes all their products from 100% Icelandic wool. Lopi purchases their wool directly from Iceland farmers then spins, dyes and processes it into yarns all at their own manufacturing plant. Read more about Lopi/Icelandic wool HERE and a yarn review from Knitter’s Review HERE.

Note: we are not presently carrying Lopi yarns (they’re a bit in the itch side), but it’s fun to explore new things, so when the offer for a trunk show came up I said yes. All of the patterns are downloadable on Ravelry and we can help you chose a substitute yarn, or if you want to use Lopi we can look into special ordering it for you.
