Double knit from 100% Icelandic wool for extra warmth and comfort, Wing scarves let you carry the spirit of the bird wherever you go. Blanket-stitched ends provide a quality finish from wing tip to wing tip.
The range of colour combinations reflects the spirit of six very different birds: Raven, Swan, Eagle, Papageno, King Eider and Flamingo.
The Wing scarf offers a sense of the power and playfulness only having wings can give.
As with all Vík Prjónsdóttír designs, The Wing scarf is the product of a design and production process based on working closely with traditional Icelandic knitwear factories and producers.
Icelandic sheep have evolved over more than 1,000 years in complete isolation, influenced only by the harsh climate and rugged landscape. This has helped to create a wool with a unique combination of fibres, unlike any other in the world.
The soft, fine inner fibres provide insulation and are strongly resistant to the cold. Meanwhile, the tough outer fibres are long and glossy, making them water resistant.
So: hardy, lightweight, warm and water-repellant. And, as the sheep’s fleece grows every year as they graze in nature, this is a truly renewable resource.
