I know that Icelandic woollen goods are incredibly warm. I bought these socks to wear in bed to keep cramp in my feet and muscles at bay. They have lived up to expectations. Warm, comfortable, hard wearing and I love the pattern too.

Knitting with Lots of Wool and Lots of Love!

My aunt taught me to knit on my first solo trip to Iceland - and since then I've been absolutely addicted! I love knitting traditional Icelandic sweaters with not-so-traditional color.

I have a Bachelor's degree in International Studies and a Master's degree in International Business, and I started to knit my sweaters as gifts for my family and friends. With plenty of encouragement from those that were delighted with my sweaters, I decided to open up my etsy shop. I hand knit my sweaters from beginning to end, including sewing in a zipper or adding buttons. The sweater is made within a week or so (depending on processing times) and then shipped out - my current record for knitting a sweater is 13 hours! I have since been steadily adding items to my shop - from wool mittens to socks to hats to headbands. I love every aspect of shop, from knitting to packaging, and get inspiration every day from the beautiful Icelandic landscape that surrounds me.

I am continually working to perfect my shop and my techniques and hope that you consider investing in one of my beautiful, warm 100% pure Icelandic products.
