Istex is all about the Icelandic wool. It operates a scouring plant in Blönduós in the North and a spinning mill in Mosfellsbær near the Capital.

The Icelandic wool has outstanding breathability and thermal insulation. Over 1,100 years in the sub-arctic climate and isolation has given the Icelandic wool a distinctive character.

The wool is dual-coated with a combination of inner and outer fibres. The inner fibres þel are fine, soft and highly insulating. The outer fibres tog are long, strong and weather resistant. Together they create a high-quality wool that is lightweight, water-repellent and highly breathable. When tog and þel are processed together we get the exclusive Lopi.
