From Knitter's Review:

Reynolds has produced Lopi for many, many years. Lopi Lite and Bulky Lopi are more recent additions to the product line. Made in Iceland, the Lopi line goes hand in hand with Reynolds' extensive Icelandic pattern collections. These are traditionally knit in the round, with elaborate color patterning around the waist, sleeves, and yoke.

Knitting Up: I place this loosely spun yarn in the worsted category. That's because the fibers are mostly aligned in a common direction instead of jumbled together like woolen yarns. This results in a smoother, stronger yarn and less snagging. Knitting was relatively rapid and effortless, aided by my dull-tipped Addi Turbos. Stitches appeared even and steady, and the yarn's twist stayed consistent as I worked with it.

 


Blocking / Washing: My swatches behaved perfectly in the wash, with no bleeding or fading. There was only a slight bloom in the fiber, and the gauge remained true.

Conclusion: The Lopi line is visually tempting, with a splendid array of color possibilities. It's the perfect medium for Icelandic-type designs. And Reynolds produces almost more of these designs than anyone else, making this an obvious marriage.
