Characteristics of Icelandic wool
Characteristic of the Icelandic wool is that it is unique in its composition. Icelandic wool consists of two types of fibres:
Inner fibres - insulating:
Fine, soft, highly insulating.
Outer fibres - water-repellent:
Long, glossy, water-repellent.
Together, these two distinctive fibres create a wool that is:
Lightweight - lighter than most other wools, keeps you warm and comfortable.
Water-repellent - repels rain and stays feeling dry.
Breathable - moisture passes through the fibres away from the skin, keeping you dry and comfortable.
Washable - see manufacture´s instructions. It is often enough to air the garment thouroughly, rather than washing it.
