The scarf is a very classic, simple style, but it's very warm but without being bulky. Icelandic people take their wool VERY SERIOUSLY. (I also bought the warmest wool sweater of my life here but it was handknit, unused and full price, but I don't mind paying someone for their craftsmanship. Not thrifty, but supporting local artisans, which I can also get behind). Here's the scarf, lying flat.
It's basic, like I said, but it is HARD to find anything Type 4 in Iceland. Most things they call "white" are actually cream or light beige, and even their "black" wool sweaters are charcoal. Bold and saturated are not traditional Iceland style elements, so the fact that I found ANYTHING is a win!
I almost bought a red tartan-patterned wool scarf, just out of desperation, and I'm glad I didn't. Red tartan is almost always Type 4, but for some reason it feels really Christmasy to me, and inappropriate to wear beyond the holiday.
Don't be afraid to hit up thrift stores in different countries! They are way less smelly and junk-filled than US thrift stores. They seem to actually put forth effort in removing damaged or chronically out of style items. I really don't dislike thrifting, I just dislike that in the US, it's just random junk that hasn't been washed and half the items are damaged. Time to drive 2 hours to thrift in Canada...
