Sandnes Garn + iiS Woodling
Sandnes wanted to tell the story of the very bedrock of their production; the chunky, hearty, vibrant, über-Norwegian, traditional and all round beloved yarn that has warmed the mountain bound, the young at heart, the everyday hero and pretty much every other Norwegian. ,
This is, of course, the down to earth, reliable and durable Sandnesgarn Fritidsgarn. This year we are celebrating it by having a modern, yet tradition-anchored collection made in its honor. The Norwegian design studio iiS Woodling by Siv Elise Seland has designed a series of four garments. These four sweaters are modern yet with strong ties to the crafting legacy of knitwork that inspire us.
Part and parcel of this story is also the wellbeing of the sheep that roam the countryside, contributing to the maintenance of the cultural landscape. When the wool is thick and grown, it is sheared and sent to the factory in Sandnes, where it gets washed with soap and water, carded, spun and subsequently colored, utilizing environmentally friendly dyes, in line with strict EU regulations.
We enjoy celebrating Fritidsgarn and are vastly proud of the beautiful collection that resulted from the collaboration with Sandnes and iiS Woodling.
