Lava sweater will be available in English soon!

Lava sweater is knitted from Icelandic wool from Gilhag spinning mill and Åland sheep wool from Myrskyluodon wool.

The yoke of the Lava shirt has a surface knit that reminds you of sheep's hair, and it has a simple, classic design.
The shirt is at its best when going out; the thick tight knit keeps you warm in any weather and the high collar protects against wind and wind. Lava is an unbeatable garment for any outdoor activity!
Like many Icelandic knits, the sleeves are knitted first, then the cuffs, and finally the yoke, which joins them together to form a finished garment. You can adjust the height of the collar according to your needs. The shirt uses simple techniques, so you can enjoy the flow of knitting. You can easily succeed with this instruction!
