Buy Shit: Scarves, Bedding, Books, Herbal Medicine

Published October 19, 2017

We’d skip the shitty novelty T-shirts, tbh. This stuff is better.

66° North Bylur Scarf
Icelandic wool is a wonderful thing, but even its biggest fans will admit that it’s uncomfortably itchy for anything other than outwear (like the classic, chunky lópapeysa sweater). 66° North have figured this out—their Bylur scarf is light, oversized enough to swathe yourself in, and made from a soft and cosy wool, nylon and acrylic blend that keeps you warm without making you itch.

Icelandic Eiderdown Bedding
It’s not something you’ll fit in your case easily as a souvenir, but hey, maybe you live here, or you have a private jet with limitless cargo space, and people to do your bidding or something. If either of those things apply to you, maybe you’d be into a duvet stuffed with Icelandic eiderdown. There are light versions for use during (what passes for) summer in Iceland, and heavier ones that’ll keep you warm through the winter. JR

Herbal Medicine Book
While you’re hiking in the countryside, you could well be walking past all kinds of herbs, flowers and plants that have uses in traditional herbal medicine. This book comes with a waterproof cover, so even if it’s bucketing down you’ll be able to identify the 90 plants growing in Iceland that reputedly have medicinal effects. JR

Fishbone Model Making Kit
When is a fish not a fish? When you’ve glue-gunned its bones into the shape of a ballerina, of course! This model making kit contains over 100 pieces of authentic Icelandic fishbone for you to craft into freaky new shapes. Each box is different, as fish have diverse (but equally valid) body types. See what you can come up with! CW
