Öjbro Vantfabrik Merino Wool Socks

SkaftÖ SnÖ

Skaftö Snö Socks by Öjbro Vantfabrik

Skaftö, a remote island community of around 2,000 in west Sweden, explodes during the summer vacation to over 20,000!  It is one of many islands on the West coast of Sweden. Thousands, with their quaint fishing villages and granite rock formations litter the shoreline from Göteborg to Norway offering some easy down time, eating buckets of prawns and smoked mackerel, chatting with the locals and taking and early morning walks along slowly meandering, deserted, coastal roads, encountering stunning views at every corner.

 

Owner designer Åse Öjbro has created wearable art (Åse was also an artist of paints and palette for over 20 years before deciding to express her art in wool).  She has created this innovative alternating small v-shaped uniform patterns of lice "lusemonsters" believed to protect from evil spirits.

 

Made in Sweden in Ted Öjbro's small family facility with merino wool.
