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.
Designed and hand knitted by Soffía Björgvinsdóttir from the hand-spun 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 to retain the wool's natural oils and then boiled to create a luxurious density.
In 'sheep black' yarn, each pair of loafers comes with certificate of authenticity issued by Daníel’s foundation, Fræðasetur um forystufé. See size chart.
