A journey through Iceland reveals natural, primordial materials: hand-spun wool, horsehair, horn, reindeer antler, lava stone and driftwood. Hand- crafted objects- each unique in the world- are made-to-order by Iceland's foremost artists and artisans. Starkness, restraint and strength of design reflect the stunning raw landscapes of the country- at once ancient and yet utterly modern.
Basket Weave Scarf
Hand knitted in Iceland from pure Icelandic wool in a stitch resembling a basket weave. In ivory hues, pictured. Also available in charcoal. Eight inches wide and 54 inches long.
Icelandic wool is unique in the world with fine, soft and highly insulating inner fibers and long, glossy water-repellent outer fibers. Combined they create a wool that is lighter, warmer, more water repellent and more breathable than any other.
