VÍK PRJÓNSDÓTTIR Sea Blanket

Vík Prjónsdóttir is fascinated by natural materials, craftmanship and fair and honest production. They are based in Iceland and enjoy finding adventures where they are best hidden.

Each piece has a story, inspired by everyday magic. Vík Prjónsdóttir designs and produces creative, high-quality wool products. Their designs are inspired by myths and stories and their production process is based on working closely with traditional, local knitwear factories and producers. They work almost exclusively with Icelandic sheep's wool, a unique and sustainable resource that has evolved in isolation over 1,000 years.

The mysterious deep is a source of danger, mystery, beauty and survival. The Seablanket is made from 100% Icelandic wool and transform your bed into a rolling woolen seascape.

The Seablanket is available in single bed size, bringing the ocean to life in your home. Each blanket is formed from hand cut and sewn strips. The wool is double knitted into long strips, then hand cut into 'waves'. These shapes are then sewn together, while the blanket-stitched ends provide a quality finish. Each side offers a different colour and the chance for a sea-change.

As with all Vík Prjónsdóttír designs, the Seablanket 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.
