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.

'Forystufé' Wool Sweater

Hanna Hlif knits sweaters from the wool of Iceland’s forystufé 'leader' sheep which guides an entire flock. There are only 1400 on earth and their wool is prized for being remarkably soft and itch-free, carefully processed according to the vision of preservationist Daníel Hansen of Fræðasetur um forystufé to retain the wool's natural oils.


Each of Hanna's finely knitted sweaters take a month to create, containing unique nuanced details so that no two are exactly alike.
