Authentic Iceland hiking and Knitting tour: wearing her Útivist sweater and a newly made wool week hat!

The Icelandic sheep spent all summer in the mountains where they range freely. In september they are herded back to the farms, then have to be sorted between the different farm owners of the area. They have a tag attached to their hear so we can recognized them (although many farmers usually recognize their ewes and know them by their names). After a summer completely free, they are quite wild, especially the lambs, and are not cooperative at all! The round up is a big pen with little pens around belonging to each farmer. Once sorted and inside the little pen, everything quiets down again. Sorting the sheep is hard work, they are so strong and angry, so all the family and friends come to help, making it a fun social event. Sheep farming is an important part of Icelandic economy ever since the settlement time, in the 9th century, and Icelanders would never have survived without the sheep. #sheeproundup #authenticiceland

Fr: Tricot-trek Islande Authentique : elle porte son pull Útivist et un bonnet en lopi tout juste rabattu !

Après avoir passé tout l'été en liberté dans les montagnes, les moutons sont ramenés et doivent être triés entre les différentes fermes de la région. On les distingue grâce à un tag sur l'oreille. Très sauvages et costauds, les moutons, surtout les plus jeunes, sont tout sauf coopératifs! Ils sont triés dans un grand enclos entouré d'enclos plus petits correspondant à chaque ferme. Une fois dans le petit enclos avec les leurs, tout redevient calme. L'élevage du mouton est une part importante de l'économie islandaise depuis la colonisation de l'île au 9ème siècle. Sans les moutons, les Islandais n'auraient jamais survécu.
