Swedish Nordic Knit Headband - 100% Wool

$45.00

Look great on the slopes this winter and stay warm too. 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 tri-colour design hand knit from a soft and warm 100% wool worsted weight in red, green and white.

Knit in a smoke free home.
