Oh! The Icelandic Weather!

The name Iceland is enough to send shivers up your spine and it’s no surprise that one of it’s distinct features is how uncontrollable and unpredictable the weather is.

On February 25th, actor Russel Crowe told Jay Leno on The Tonight Show on NBC, that the weather in Iceland is very extreme and unpredictable. Mr. Crowe stayed in Iceland last year, during filming Darren Aronofsky’s movie Noah.

Iceland’s hourly weather forecast – Watch out: it changes quickly!

Mr. Crowe is definitely right – It is sometimes stated that we can’t be certain if a day in Iceland will feature sun, rain, snow, wind, hail, fog or a combination thereof.

However, we are fully prepared to face various types of weather. Icelandic wool products have gained a deserved reputation as the ultimate in comfort, style and most importantly, keeping you and your family warm. The natural fibres of the Icelandic wool trap air and warmth inside the fibre which provides incredible warmth, no matter what the weather. Woolen apparel is not only warm, but also virtually waterproof as the wool wicks moisture away from the body, keeping you dry at all times.

Please feel free to browse through our selection of wool products on our website.
