The Najaden sweaters: 100% “Spæl” wool!
The “spæl” is our original breed of
sheep, which the Vikings took with them to Iceland, the
Faeroe Islands and Greenland. The “spæl”
thrives in our climate, the long smooth wool on the top
of the coat drains away water and snow while the wool
closest to the skin keeps it warm.
The “spæl” is part of our heritage from
a time when quality was demanded and depended upon and
when small details counted. The wool of the “spæl”
is supple and the smooth woollen fibres trap a lot of
air, so if you should get wet the water runs off and you
dry out and warm up quickly.
The “spæl” sheep thrive in our climate,
and like them we too need wool to clothe us both summer
