My hand-knitted sweater, or lopapeysa, and hat, which are made of Icelandic sheeps’ wool, have already arrived! I got them online from the Icelandic company Icewear, which has amazing fast delivery to the USA and also great online customer service.  Icewear’s motto is “Be Warm, Be Well.”

Icewear also has many other kinds of outdoor wear besides sweaters and hats. Lots of good stuff for fall and winter hiking and camping.  Or trekking across a huge wintry university campus, which is what I’m doing this winter. Check them out!  See Icewear at
