a by-product of being a land of lava and ice is that iceland is full of natural hot springs. some are wilder than others, and some are literally too hot to handle. but the ones that you can slip into are a delicious way to relax your sore muscles and unwind from all that hiking and adventuring. this sweater is also delicious to slip into, and yoth’s cozy father base will make it your favourite cold-weather garment. wear it on your hike and only take it off when you hit those hot springs!
