Your order will be shipped within 1 week after your payment, but normally within 24 hours. Delivery time according to the Norwegian post office (I temporarily live in Norway, but still use my Icelandic wool) is 3-5 days within Europe and 11 days to the rest of the world, however most customers do get their orders sooner.
ABOUT DAPHNIA (from WIKIPEDIA): Daphnia are small, planktonic crustaceans, between 0.2 and 5 mm in length. Daphnia are members of the order Cladocera. They live in various aquatic environments ranging from acidic swamps to freshwater lakes, ponds, streams and rivers.
ABOUT THE ICELANDIC WOOL: No other wool is lighter, warmer or more water resistant than the Icelandic wool. The wool consists of both coarse and fine fibers. The coarse fibers are long, glossy, tough and WATER RESISTANT while the fine fibers tend to be softer and more INSULATING, providing a high resistance to cold. Icelandic wool is LIGHT, flexible and extremely WARM.
