Iceland's most famous textile

It cost me ISK 19,900 (about $165), but it's nearly impossible to come all this way and not find at least one. It's expertly hand knitted and not scratchy, despite being made from Icelandic wool. I think it's a nice balance of tradition and contemporary color, plus I know I'll use it in Seattle, because it's so similiar in weather it's uncanny. Like everything here, expensive but high quality. I know how to knit and I admire this person's skill.
