Stunning vintage Norwegian sweater! 100% wool in blue and white, with silver-colored clasps - the yarn colors are rich and crisp, with absolutely no fading despite the fact that the tag looks well over 20 years old. This gorgeous sweater is in pristine condition and looks barely worn, other than the slightest bit of fuzzing on the button band. The "new wool" used to construct it is sturdy, but it isn't rustic, either. This is not an itchy sweater and can be worn comfortably against the skin. Its overall length and the simple pattern design look contemporary and timeless - as easy to wear now as when it was made.
Bust: about 40" based on flat-lay measurements across the underarms.
Length: 12.5" from underarm to hem
Sleeve: 17.5" from underarm to cuff
About our Vintage Knits:
We love giving woolens and handmade knit and crochet items a new home! It's a great way to honor the work of these makers, a sustainable way to shop, and it feels true to who we are.
We call this section "vintage knits" in that we don't generally know the age or provenance of these items, or the yarn that made them. Occasionally our shop's knit samples also make it in here!
We carefully select only the items that speak to us, and ensure they are in good condition. We check each one for minor repairs, and wash small items (hats, mittens, cowls) so that they'll be ready to wear or gift once you receive them.
All items are sold as-is; woolens and handmade items are perfectly imperfect, and we don't consider these defects, just the nature of a handmade wardrobe! We make every effort to include clear photos, measurements and descriptions; please review carefully and message us with any questions, as we cannot accept returns from our Vintage Knits category. We want you to love and enjoy each item here!
Hand wash all wool and handmade knit and crochet items in cool water with a mild soap like Soak. Wool is naturally antimicrobial, and hand knits last longer with less fuss and washing - just wear them and enjoy!
