A vegvísir is an Icelandic magical symbol intended to help the bearer find their way through rough weather. It means sign post or wayfinder. Having a guide through literal or metaphorical ‘rough weather’ appeals to me. The vegvísir is both protective and reassuring.
The vegvísir is found in the Huld Manuscript, collected in Iceland by Geir Vigfusson in 1880 (though it is comprised of many earlier images).
A leaf of this manuscript shows an image of the vegvísir, gives its name, and, in prose, proclaims that “if this sign is carried, one will never lose one’s way in storms or bad weather, even when the way is not known”.
The vegvísir is mentioned in at least two sources, the Huld Manuscript compiled by Geir Vigfusson in Akureyri in 1860 and The Galdrabok, a magical grimoire.

A unisex heavy blend hooded sweatshirt is relaxation itself. The material is a thick blend of cotton and polyester. This makes for a plush, soft feel alongside warmth. It’s also a great surface for printing. There are no side seams. A spacious kangaroo pocket hangs in front. The hood’s drawstring is the same color as the base sweater.
