Wool sweaters with Icelandic designs


Women´s Icelandic wool sweaters from lopi wool

Traditional patters generations old

Icewear's wool jumpers for women are where the brand first started. Generations-old patterns like the lopapeysa, with all its variations, have been the pride of the brand's craft. This passion has careened together with evolving technology to make the most of the unique Icelandic wool seen in these women's jumpers.

The use of wool in Icelandic jumpers is as old as Iceland itself. The isolated island nation has a history of more than 1,000 years of raising sheep for their wool. Those sheep have developed a unique two-layer wool (made of Þel and tog) as a response to being bred in isolation in the harsh Icelandic climate.

Centuries-old tradition woven in with cutting-edge production

Whether you live in a colder climate (like Iceland) or another corner of the world, women's wool jumpers by Icewear provide an extraordinary selection. Get lost in the traditional patterns, the many colors, and the large selection of wool and weight to choose from.

Use minimal washing detergent when you occasionally wash your jumper and lay it out to dry to prevent stretching of the sweater. Even before washing, airing it out might suffice. The natural anti-bacterial qualities will keep your jumpers cleaner longer.

Wool comes from a unique sheep population checkmark icon

Icelandic sheep have been bred in isolation for more than 1,000 years. Their wool has developed unique qualities as a result, especially in response to the harsh climate of Iceland. Þel and tog make up two layers of unique fibers in this singular wool.
