Lopapeysa

jumper with Icelandic soul

Lopapeysa (is. lopi – wool, peysa – sweater) is a traditional Icelandic sweater made of sheep wool. It’s characterised by a big pattern on the joke and sometimes also at the bottom of the sleeves. All the sweaters are knitted in a round which means apart from the arm pits they have no sewn parts. They are perfect for a moody Icelandic weather, can be useful also in mountains and while doing winter sports. Icelanders wear their sweaters almost every day; a lopapeysa now is seen as one of the symbols of the island.

I use 2 types of Icelandic wool Ístex:

  • Léttlopi for the less thick sweaters (for Icelandic spring: around 10 degrees)

  • Álafosslopi for very thick sweaters (Icelandic winter: around 0 degrees).
