Riimu - Icelandic knitwear for the whole family

Bueatiful Icelandic knitwears

Johanna Vaurio-Teräväinen is so multi skilled. One of her super skills is knitting and creating by knitting. Gimsteinn was already an breakthrough design and now there is more! A beautiful sweater with Icelandic horse figures which you will definitely fall in love with!

A perfect choise for outdoor activities

Horses belongs to the Icelandic culture as the dot on the i-letter. Johanna loves horses, and using them in her designs. Riimu icelandic sweater is easy to knit as there are only a few colours simultaneously on each row.

Riimu sweater, both the childern and the adult designs are pretty snug to wear, so they are also easy to wear under outerwears but as icelandic wool in general, they can be woren as is without any extra clothes on them.

What colours you'd choose? With few harmonious colours you'll get a charming outcome. 

Icelandic wool is a perfect choise for windy, cold and moist outdoor activities

The wool of Icelandic sheep has adapted to the harsh conditions of the northern island country and is characterised by its ability to withstand wind and moisture. In Iceland, garments made of this wool are used both indoors and outdoors, depending on their thickness.

The best Finnish alternative to Icelandic wool is perhaps the wool of Åland sheep. If the wool’s properties in outdoor activities are not essential to your dress, you can replace the wool of Icelandic sheep with any local alternative you like.
