Description

Really made in Iceland. This product is created by Icelandic material, labour and design. 100% Icelandic wool, machine spun and knitted. The fabric is hand decorated by needle felting using unspun cashmere and silk fibres for the white and shiny snow. The designer has put a lot of work into developing the right icy look and is always careful not to overdo the designs with decoration, because sometimes less is more.

The cap can be used with a matching scarf, combined with a jacket, coat or a sweater. When put on, it stands a little bit up from the head. Then the top should be pulled back so it will look relaxed and casual. One size fits all.

The Icelandic wool

The Icelandic wool is naturally breathable and regulates body temperature. It is a resource which has kept the Icelandic people warm for centuries. It was in fact the only textile material available for common people until the 20th century. But it is a good one. The wool of the Icelandic sheep consists of two kinds of hair. The soft inner layer used for underwear and clothing. The water repellant and long fibered outer layer is used for outerwear and long lasting garments.

Taking care

If the cap gets stained we recommend hand-wash and flat dry. If no spots/dirt is seen on the garment, it should be enough to hang it outside and air it for a little while. It will be as good as new. If the wool gets out of shape, for example by hanging somewhere for a long time, it can be reshaped by ironing with a damp cloth, just make sure the decoration faces down from iron.
