SPINNI is a single ply wool.
In the olden days in Iceland this yarn was hand spun and preferably so fine that a finished shawl could be pulled through a finger ring.
Spinni is not quite as fine and we use the yarn in many different ways. When used on its own it is very suitable for lace shawls and one of its qualities is that it keeps its shape, so a scarf or shawl will not 'collapse'. In the Isager collection we carry patterns for scarves as Islandsk Sjal (Icelandic Shawl) and Domino Sjal (Domino Shawl).
We also use the yarn on its own for very light sweater and blouses. Helga Isager in particular has designed several nice blouses in this yarn: Lemon, Robin and Lace (from her latest book The Artisan) to name but a few.
As Spinni is a single yarn spun in a single direction, it is not really suitable for knitting stocking stitch in the round. The knitted fabric will have a tendency to skew. If working in the round in a textured pattern this will not normally be a problem.
In a multicoloured work Spinni will often be used as one of the yarns and with its beautiful and characteristic structure it is a lovely element in the knitted fabric.

Spinni is also used in combination with other yarns.
Here are some suggestions:
Spinni used individually works fine knitted on 2.5 to 3.5 mm needles
Spinni and Alpaca 1 held together are worked on 3 to 4 mm needles
Spinni and Alpaca 2 held together are worked 3.5 to 4.5 mm needles
Spinni and Silk Mohair held together are worked on 4 to 6 mm needles
