A Feld is a Viking cloak which was woven in Iceland and sold in Norway. The first we started in Iceland last November. Iceland was the best place to start a feld. There is a lot of information still to be found about the Feld in Iceland in the Law books and in the Museums.

At the beginning of October we were all back in Osteroy to teach weaving on the old loom. With full classes and Norwegian and international students, we worked hard but had great fun.

We used this type of fleece for the Norway Feld and in the weaving class.
