Reynolds Lopi Lite Knitting Wool - Source

kiwiknitter's picture

I am trying to source Reynolds Lite Lopi in the following colours: #005 Black Heather and #0054 Ash Heather. I have done multiple internet searches but to no avail. Does anyone know of a source for these colours? I cannot buy them in New Zealand. Cheers!

Well, that definitely leaves

Well, that definitely leaves me out of the Great Minds Club! I'm happy to have this site for future reference. They replied to my query and they do send internationally, so thanks Mike for the offer but it's sorted now. I have a beautiful pattern I want to do once the wool arrives.

My knitting is totally tubular!

I don't know if you've ever

I don't know if you've ever worked in Lopi Lite. I used it in the afghan I was working on doubled up with a sport weight samoyed...I'd say that it's best for fairisle: It's not structurally the strongest yarn I've ever dealt with.

Bob, No, I've never used it

Bob, No, I've never used it before. I purchased a pattern book (Lopi Vol 25) because I liked a pattern for a man's fair isle jumper that is circ/seamless but without the raglan seamlines (the reductions are made in the body of the yoke itself) which I really want to try. Since this is my first attempt at such a method, I thought it best to follow the pattern exactly (I'm still very new at doing things "my way"). Any advice you wish to offer will be appreciated.

LOL. I saw your post, and

LOL. I saw your post, and thought, Ahah, that's easy: Webs! went to the site, copied down the page, came back here to leave a comment, and Mike had the exact same idea. How funny. Great minds think alike.

Both are listed at, predictably enough, Webs: our Basilica of all things Fibre. Don't know whether they ship internationally so, if they don't, let me know and I'll get them for you and ship them off to you.

HTH!

Glad you were able to find it!
