Design

The Ulfhedinn Zip Hoody was designed by Dyrs Hjarta Art and features a small front design as well as a large back print. 

On the front of the hoody is a beast head appearing out of the younger futhark, a runic system in use during the Viking era. 

In sages from the Viking age including the Völsunga, Úlfhéðnar are said to have performed remarkable feats that would be beyond the abilities of any normal warrior.

We have all heard tales in popular culture of berserkers who in the heat of battle would enter a trance like state when fighting. Similarly, it is said in the sagas that an Úlfhéðinn would enter battle wearing the skin of a wolf rather than any form of armour.

In the archaeological record, an Úlfhéðinn is depicted in the Vendel period on a helmet place found on Öland in Sweden.
