Norsk skigenser - Nordic Sweater - 100% wool

Lenght: 66 cm, wide: 57 cm, Arm: 53 cm

Nordic sweaters have an interesting history. Originally, Nordic sweaters only came in black or white. These were the natural colors of sheep´s wool. Soon sweaters became high fashion, and people began combining other colors. Next knitters began experimenting with patterns, but usually on the very top of the sweaters because Nordic people tucked their sweaters down into baggy pants. Later, more intricate patterns emerged as people decided to combine function with fashion and wear their Nordic sweaters to events such as church.
