Älva (swedish for “fairy”) is a sustainable knit from PÆTRIA design`s Evig collection – hand-knitted in stockinette stitch patterns and adorned with long braids, Älva brings back the slow art of hand-knitting and a luxurious feels of the highest quality Icelandic wool (OEKO-TEX certified). Älva is made of unspun Plötulopi, which makes it exceptionally light and airy. Our Plötulopi garments are knitted by only a few experienced members of the amazing team of knitters we work with, that all wield the specific hand-twisting yarn technique required when working with this delicate wool. Älva takes pride in being both slowly and sustainably designed and created.

Details and Care

100% unspun Icelandic wool

Designed in Norway. Made in Serbia

Älva is a long style cardigan, featuring a relaxed, comfy fit, statement braided-knit pattern frontaly and on slightly puffed sleeves, a front button fastening and a ribbed hem and cuffs.

Älva is a 100% mulesing free wool garment and no animals were harmed in the wool production process. Älva is made of wool produced by the icelandic Istex, which is today 80% proudly farmer-owned. Every person involved in creating this piece has been fairly paid and treated. 

Note that actual colors might vary slightly from your monitor. 

Instead of washing, air out your woollen garments from time to time. Wash only if stained. We suggest hand-washing our wool pieces in cold water with a gentle, natural soap. We love any organic soap that has little scent, in a small dose. DO NOT PRE-SOAK THE PLÖTULOPI GARMENTS IN THE SUDS. Wash the garment by squeezing the suds through the knitwear then rinse thoroughly in cold or lukewarm water. Dry flat, smooth the garment out and pull gently into shape.

How to Wear It

Älva is a classical, yet delicate piece and will go perfect with a cropped top or a shirt and denim, or over a dress. Älva is a jacket-like, long cardigan, easy to be worn over any outfit for extra comfiness all year round.  The ivory/off-white color of Älva allows it to be combined with many different colors. Älva is also a great winter piece over a wool dress for that warm and cozy wool-on-wool style.  Once ready, pass it on to your next generation or simply someone you love. It is made to last for generations.

Description

All of our handmade knitwear is “one size” only, as that is a crucial part of how our business is able to sustain – given our very small margins. However, the measurements have been chosen in order to fit everyone from XS-XL. Some models are either slightly or very oversized and will therefore fit a broad range of body types, yet the fit might be different from person to person.

To get a better idea of how the piece you love fits, take a look at the item`s measurements in the size chart below on each product page. In the top description on each item`s page you can read the photographed model`s measurements.
