When these two natural threads, wool and silk are twined together their positive qualities are joined and keep the body warm and dry and the resulting yarn is stronger and softer than yarn that is made solely from Icelandic wool. The yarn is light and airy with an even texture. The silk gives the wool a sophisticated shimmer which makes the colours of the einrúm yarn deep and pure. The einrúm knitting patterns illustrate the unique qualities and texture of the einrúm yarn.
The yarn is made in four different qualities for handknitting; einrúm E+2, E+4, L+2 and L+4.
