The kartank:finnmark is produced in our northern most county Finnmark. At these latitudes the necessity, first of all for warm clothing, but also rigid quality is what made life possible for thousand of years during the polar night, and well into the spring. This is the area where the sami population move with their reindeers in temperatures that require a product that will stay warm in all conditions - a wool shoe design that is unchanged for thousand of years and has been tested by generations. Also used by the norwegian army, these 100% wool shoes is a safe purcase that we are shure that you will be enjoy during your next adventure. These is our most rigid wool shoe, made for use alone, or inside other types of boots for longer or shorter walks in cold weather. They are high to keep snow out, at the same time they keep your ankles warm. They are stiff to keep the shape, and have undergone an extra careful felting treatment by able hands for durability. If you need a kartank made for less demanding situations, for example inside the sleeping bag during the night or in camp, you should check out the kartank:troms. The Kartank has a long history in the north. Used by people for several thousand years, the tecunique of felting is thought to be older than the art of spinning - and the design is unchanged for several thousand years. Want to learn more?

How to maintain your wool product
If you feel the need to wash your wool garment there are a few things to consider. You should hand wash only at a maximum of 30-40 degrees celsius. When done with the washing you dry the garments on a flat surface, for example the bathroom floor. Wool might shrink a bit when washed, but is easily pulled into the previous shape when whet. Just make sure you don´t overdo it.
Most of the time it will be enough to just leave your wool product outdoors for a few hours to let it breathe - this will of course not work on stains.

Advantages of wool
Wool is a 100% natural product that only sheds fibers that break down, end up as soil in nature, and releases valuable nutrients back to the earth. Wool is 100% natural, produced by one of thousands of sheep consuming a simple blend of water, air, sunshine and grass. To top it all wool is 100% renewable. Every year the sheep produce a new fleece, making wool a completely renewable fibre.
Being able to absorb large quantities of water, and being odour resistant was also something Roald Amundsen enjoyed walking to the south pole. If you want to get some more information we have prepared some more info for you.
