Owner and designer Åse Öjbro has created wearable mitten art (Åse was also an artist of paints and palettes for over 20 years before deciding to express her art in wool.) She has created this sami inspired pattern on the back of the mitten hand showing the “västerbotten dräll”, with supporting sami col. stripes and with the two color cuff at the wrist. The inside palm has an alternating nail dot pattern. When designing Lycksele pattern, I took note of “västerbottens drällen” weave technique. I wanted to have a little Sami extension, and added therefore little Sami -inspired stripes in the pattern .It 's been fun to put this pattern together given Öjbros family history.
For how long a time the Nordic people have been knitting wool is unknown. The earliest sign of wool knitting dates back to the 13th century. Öjbro Vantfabrik has a passion to bring the wool knitting traditions of the old into modern days of wool knitting.
Made in Sweden in Ted Öjbro's small family facility with merino wool.
