The kartank:finnmark is produced in our northernmost county Finnmark. At these latitudes the necessity, first of all for warm clothing, but also the rigid quality is what made life possible for thousands 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 thousands of years and has been tested by generations. Also used by the Norwegian army, these 100% wool shoes is a safe purchase that we are sure that you will be enjoyed during your next adventure. This 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 technique 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?

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.
