I just realised that the yarn I bought in Iceland is un-spun. It is called plötulopi and breaks very easily. Nevertheless it is this yarn that you use for the traditional Icelandic lopi sweater. You may knit the yarn with one, two or three ply at the time. My plan was to make shawls (Who's surprised?) and use one ply, at least when I thought it was ordinary yarn. But last night I actually dreamt that I was making felted mittens and slippers. I don't know. Suggestions?
The fragility of the yarn makes me think that there is need for some strengthening if I want to make a shawl. Like when I added a thin cotton to the Rosa yarn from Denmark.
I'm just thinking...
