Gilitrutt’s two plies give it strength while maintaining a surprisingly soft hand and beautiful halo. Despite its fineness, it has all of the lightness and warmth expected from Icelandic wool yarns. This versatile yarn can be knitted with a variety of needle sizes and makes deliciously light sweaters as well as scarfs and mittens and is even suited for baby garments.
With Gilitrutt, Hélène Magnússon has created a unique Icelandic plied lace weight, made of soft 100% Icelandic lambswool. Gilitrutt is spun from fleeces than Hélène hand-selects and grades one by one after the first shearing of the Icelandic lambs. The carefully crafted result is an Icelandic lambswool yarn of unparalleled softness and fineness.
