Icelandic wool has been with Icelanders since colonization.
It has evolved over the centuries in the cold northern climate and therefore has a unique combination of two strands that gives us a wool that is warm and light, breathes well and repels water.
Main export product in 1624
Woolen socks have been with us for a long time, but it is worth noting that the year 1624 knitwear was one of Icelanders' main export products; that year we exported 72,231 pairs of woolen socks.
made in reykjavík
All our products are made in our factory in Reykjavík. This means that the whole supply chain of our main raw material, Icelandic wool, stays in its country of origin. We believe in this kind of value creation. We create jobs in Iceland, enhance human life and most importantly, we respect nature.
Water vapor from geothermal heat is mainly used as an energy source in the production of Icelandic woolen yarn. When the wool is washed, the use of chemicals and detergents is kept to an absolute minimum to ensure that the natural fat is not lost so the wool keeps its natural warm, light and water repellant features.
