Feel the warmth of Iceland
感受冰岛的温暖
The traditional knitted sweaters started to become popular in the 1950’s. The yarn used, lopi, is made from 100% natural Icelandic sheep wool, which has the property of keeping you warm, letting your skin breath and being waterproof at the same time. It is believed that the origin of ‘peysa’  comes from the French word ‘paysan’ (peasant). As French sailors arrived in Iceland they pointed at the farmers and said, “Paysan!” and the Icelanders thought they were referring to their wool sweaters.
传统编织毛衣在二十世纪五十年代开始流行。使用的料,来自百分之百天然冰岛羊毛,它的特点就是保暖,让皮肤透气,同时还防水。据说“毛衣”一词最早起源法语“农民” 。在法国水手到冰岛时,他们指着农民说“农民”,而冰岛人以为他们说的是毛衣外套。
‘The Viking’  collaborates with local producers and has a big collection of sweaters in different sizes and colours along with the very popular hats and fluffy woollen mittens.
