Men's and Women's Icelandic Pullovers

“Last July I spent two weeks in Iceland and was overwhelmed with wool and sweater inspiration while there (even in the middle of summer). When I returned home, inspired, I set out to design my own version of a traditional Icelandic yoked pullover. Grettir is the result, and we’ve presented two versions for you here: a greyscale crewneck for men and a colorful turtleneck for women.

While visiting the northern coast of the country, I met a storyteller who told me the amazing saga of Grettir – the longest surviving outlaw in Icelandic history. I was particularly intrigued by the final chapter in the story: Grettir’s demise on the rocky cliffs of Drangey, a fortress-like stone island off the coast; an incredible sight, visible from the very shoreline where I sat when hearing this tale.” –Jared Flood
