Hoods In The Sagas –

In Fljótsdæla saga ( a region in Iceland ) from the late viking age, Sveinungr demanded a young boy at his farm to head out and gather in the sheep. The boy insisted on bringing his hood and gloves before leaving, but Sveinungr shamed him into leaving immediately. Sveinungr wanted the boy to be spotted and mistaken for Gunnarr, a man who was being pursued and who had been taken into Sveinung’s protection.

These Hoods are pre-washed 100% wool and can be washed gently on wool cycle with wool detergent and hang-dried to insure longevity or dry-cleaned when necessary. They are hand-fashioned from carefully selected wool by expert artisan Nornwoven.
