Isager - Spinni/Spinni Tweed
- Unit Price
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.
** Please note: Spinni is shipped to us in 100g skeins that are wrapped together, but priced by 50g skeins. If you purchase an even number of skeins, you will be sent one 100g bundle for every 2 skeins ordered.
