100% Wool Hand Knit Nordic Knit Headband


For the nordic skier in your family. This unique headband/ear warmer is hand knit using the Swedish Tvåändsstickning technique. Sweden is the birthplace of Tvåändsstickning. It dates back at least to the 17th century. You use two strands of yarn alternately and twisting them between each stitch. Tvåändsstickning means "two-end knitting" because traditionally the two ends of one ball of yarn are used. The resulting fabric is firmer and denser and makes for wonderfully warm knits.

This is a two-colour design hand knit from a soft and warm 100% wool worsted weight in yellow ochre and natural.

Knit in a smoke free home.
