Details

In the olden days in Iceland, this yarn was hand spun and preferably so fine that a finished shawl could be pulled through a finger ring.

Although not as fine, when used on its own, it is very suitable for lace shawls.

As Spinni is a single yarn spun in a single direction, it is not really suitable for knitting stockinette stitch in the round, as the knitted fabric will have a tendency to skew, (although typically works well in textured patterns).

In a multicoloured work, Spinni will often be used as one of the yarns, and with its beautiful and characteristic structure, it is a lovely element in the knitted fabric.
