ancient arts reinvent

Elsebeth Lavold is best known for her timeless design work known worldwide as 'Viking Knits'. In the Designer's Choice collection - Elsebeth hand selects yarns she connects with made with mostly natural or all natural fiber blends - and applies her design concept, to produce a harmonious collection. The Viking Knits Project: A technical innovation in knitting made it possible for Elsebeth Lavold to use the beautiful interlace patterns of the Scandinavian Vikings in her knitwear design. The origin of The Viking Knits Project dates back to 1992. Today, the project consists of a touring exhibition, Knitting Along the Viking Trail, a 128 page book, Viking Patterns for Knitting, three 64 page design collections, The Viking Knits Collection, The Second Viking Knits Collection, and The Third Viking Knits Collection, and well over a hundred designs, available in the books or (in Sweden) as knit kits.

Behind every work of art, there is an artist. The works of art in this case, are some of the most well-known yarns being used by knitters around the globe...Zauberball, ZauberballCrazy, Ambiente...the list goes on and on! Schoppel Wolle is dedicated to pushing the envelope of color, texture and style.

Zauberball has been kicked up a notch, as two strands of the main ply have been dyed individually and then twisted together for a crazy combination! The end result is a self-striping multi-colored pattern, with a bold variegated design!

IN-SILK

Wool and silk are combined in this single ply yarn.  Muted colors are formed by dying the wool and silk roving together, allowing for the natural differences at which wool and silk absorb dye.  Don't let the 'single ply' turn you off. Schoppel Wolle has a patented technique that just slightly felts the yarn, creating a single ply that resists the normal pilling associated with it, as well as enhances stitch definition.

Wool processing has been a trade in Mosfellsbaer since 1896, previously with the company Álafoss of Iceland. In 1991, the company Ístex was formed and took over the wool processing. Ístex stands for Íslenskur Textiliðnaður which translates into Icelandic Textile Industry.

Istex is the company producing and selling the famous Alafosslopi and other Lopi yarns for hand knitting such as Álafosslopi, Bulkylopi and Léttlopi. All products are made out of high quality Icelandic wool.

Istex buys the wool directly from the farmers in Iceland and then processes it to yarn. The wool scouring is located in the town Blönduós in north of the country and the spinning mill in the town Mosfellsbaer nearby Reykjavik.

TJOCKT manufactures 4 different fat yarns.

Fat & Sassy Merino is supersoft extrafine merino wool and these yarns have been dyed in beautiful colours - 11 different shades.

Fat Alpaca Sings yarns are natural colour alpaca wool yarns - warm, fat and luxurious.

Fat Chance Finn yarns are made of natural colour superwarm and very soft finnsheep wool.

Fat Russian Roulette Merino yarns have 4 absolutely beautiful natural shades and these yarns are also as warm as it gets.

Here are our yarns (Fat Chance Finn, Fat Russian Roulette Merino, Fat&Sassy Merino, Fat Alpaca Sings) described in a nutshell:
100 grams of our fat yarns include about 10 meters of yarn meaning 0,22 lbs equals 38,2ft meaning roughly 10 yards
1kg of yarn equals about 100 meters meaning 2,2lbs equals about 382 ft and roughly 100 yards
With one kilogram of our yarns you knit about 0,4 squaremeter meaning an area of 45cm*85cm
You can wash any knit knitted with our yarn with gentle wool wash

Please note that all skeins are unique and they might have different amount of yarnmeters. Our yarns are handmade and the thickness of the yarn varies. So if the yarn is slightly thinner, it has more meters than the one that is slightly fatter.

Fat&Fluffy Merino yarn is loosely twisted big stitch yarn made of 100% extrafine merino wool. This yarn is also for 25mm needles and it weights about 50% less than Fat&Sassy Merino so with this yarn you knit almost double the area as with Fat&Sassy Merino. Fat&Fluffy is spun in Finland. This yarn is most suitable for baby knits and super-soft knits that do not have to tolerate a lot of friction.

It’s very easy: The yellow starter thread marks the beginning of each sock. Simply cut off the yellow starter thread and begin knitting the first sock. After the first sock is completed, unwind the yarn to the next yellow starter thread and cut it off. Then simply knit the second sock.

Hygge’ (pronounced ‘Hoo-ga’) is a Danish word, which means cosiness. Imagine being in a warm and welcoming environment whilst enjoying the good things in life. Snuggling on the sofa crafting, enjoying a good meal, wearing your favourite sweater, drinking a warm cup of tea, getting together with friends to talk and create, its all Hygge.

Designer Kirsten Ballering from blog Haak Maar Raak has been working with Scheepjes to plan this beautiful Scandinavian themed crochet-along. We teamed up the wonderful Stone Washed with our colourful Catona yarns for a beautiful contrast. Kirsten was inspired by traditional Scandinavian designs to decorate this wrap with a combination of both crochet and cross-stitch.

Kits are available in 3 colour themes: Rainbow, Jewel and Simy's Choice.

The CAL started in February and has since ended. All the instruction are available online at Scheepjes dot com
