Einband Lace - Re-loved
This yarn has been bought and loved and is now being shared with the world again!
Note this yarn usually comes in balls, however our de-stasher re-wound these into larger cakes.
Einband is a fine single-ply 100% Icelandic wool yarn, that is fingering-lace weight.
Einband wool yarn is ideal for weaving, crafts, mittens, sweaters, shawls, light and delicate garments and lace knitting.
Einband can be knitted using more than one strand of yarn. Two strands together knit about like the Léttlopi. Einband can also be used to add strength to one-ply Plötulopi.
Garments made from Einband stretch and are therefore difficult to measure until they have been washed. It is recommend to make a gauge square before starting a project. The final size can be determined only after washing then measure it when dry to find the exact gauge and needle size to achieve accurate measurements in the finished piece. After washing, the wool becomes soft and manageable.
