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.

'Horse Shoe' Riding Mittens

When riding in Iceland, reins go over the index, middle and ring fingers and under the thumb and pinky. True to form, unique mittens are hand knitted in Iceland by Ólöf Ásta from pure Icelandic wool in blue with a dove grey horse shoe motif and free pinky. See size chart.


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.
