The Random Iceland I Love – Full Body Cozies!.
Iceland, true to its name is quite cold and when I was there I discovered they take their handmade, woolen goods seriously.
There were a lot of things we loved about Iceland but one that stood out to me the most was the handmade wool & yarn arts. There were multiple yarn stores in the Reykjavik with amazing works of fiber art displayed in the windows.
The handmade fiber scene in Iceland is HUGE. I love crochet and knit items- be it blankets, hats, scarfs, etc. I love making them and I love wearing them or having them in my house. I saw so many stores in Reykjavik selling handmade knit items – it was like walking in a real life Etsy store. You can imagine how fantastic that would be!
Nothing could have prepared me for this bad boy though. Check it out!
A full body knit cozy!!! We stopped in a road side store on our drive back from Hofn and this beauty beckoned to me the moment I saw it. How awesome is this thing?!? It looks so warm and cozy -I want 20 of them! I love that it comes in a child size as well and it makes me wonder if they would make one for dogs too? Sadly I did not purchase it (too expensive for the backpacker budget & rightly so) but I took a picture so I could always remember how unique it was and so I could post a picture and share it on the blog. It was totally unexpected and just one of those fun things you discover in a new place. I really wish I was sitting in one now.
Do you love handmade items? Have you ever seen anything like this anywhere? Am I the only one that thinks this is the coolest thing ever?
