My Lovely Lopapeysa

The winter of 2013 is around the corner and as essential vintage item is a traditional Icelandic jumper. Lopapeysa or Icelandic jumper is an Icelandic style of jumper originating around or before the 1950's. It is believed that the jumpers are patterned on Greenlandic women's costume. The yarn used, lopi, is made from the wool of Icelandic sheep and contains both wind hairs and fleece. Wear one of these jumpers this winter and you will be forever warm!
