Show the elements who’s boss with the Skjöldur Icelandic Wool Sweater Zip & Hood. Named for the Viking shield both because of its knit pattern and also because of its ability to protect you from the elements, this hand-knit cardigan is made of 100% Icelandic wool, which makes it breathable and helps to regulate body temperature when you’re active. The classic Icelandic lopapeysa diamond pattern is echoed in accents at the cuffs and waistband and reveals the subtle shading in the natural grey colors from Icelandic sheep. Details like the hood with braided drawstrings and the full zipper with leatherette pull-tab take this piece to the next level of outdoor style. The natural fibers make it water repellent, and its light weight means it can be worn under a shell in more extreme weather conditions. This piece is made in Icewear’s knitting factory in Vík, where visitors to Iceland can shop in our largest retail store and catch a glimpse of the knitting process in action.
