Einrúm's E+2 is an interplaying of two threads twined together, which brings out the natural qualities of both the Icelandic Wool and Thai Mulberry Silk. Together, they supplement each other, creating a unique, strong, and light yarn.
The Icelandic wool is made of two parts: the threads of the upper layer are called “tog“. They are coarse and water repellent. The threads of the lower layer of the wool are called “þel“. They are warm, soft and insulating. Silk is one of nature‘s strongest threads. Thai mulberry silk is produced from the larvae of delicate silkworms that live only off the leaves of mulberry trees. Silk is known for its softness and a special shimmer that appears when light reflects beautifully from the prism formed fibres of the silk.
This yarn is ideal for knitting a warm sweater or a hat for the cold weather.
