I made the easy Malissa dress in pure Icelandic wool, which I bought in Reykjavik last summer. The grey part of the dress is made of woolen jersey by the meter, the colourful part is handknitted. But both are exactly the same kind of untwined wool, which is called Lothband in Icelandic. It was fun knitting it, but boy, that takes a lot of time compared to sewing!
The necklace is made of the same wool too. I saw a knitted necklace in the shop of the Museum of Decoratives Arts in Paris, it costed €200! I thought: I can do that myself and then it’ll only cost me time.
100% Icelandic wool
