The story

With no heating in the early days of Icelandic home life, family members and friends would often share beds to keep warm. As a gesture of hospitality, even visitors and guests would be invited to share the host's bed, lying side-by-side and head-to-toe.

In this spirit, the Twosome Blanket offers a warm mobile radiatior, bringing friends and family closer together, sharing warmth and comfort.

About the product

The perfect friend, family or couple blanket, the Twosome lets you share the warmth while leaving you plenty of me-space in your own hood. The double knit of 100% Icelandic wool offers you extra comfort, and a lining band gives the ends a quality finish. It can also be used as traditional bedspread or throw-over around the home, or as a cosy travelling blanket for camping trips.

As with all Vík Prjónsdóttír designs, the Twosome Blanket is the product of a design and production process based on working closely with traditional Icelandic knitwear factories and producers.

The material

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.
