Freyja is another sustainable knit from PÆTRIA design`s EVIG collection – hand-knitted and hand-embroidered cardigan, that brings back the slow art of embroidery, luxurious feels of the highest quality Icelandic wool (OEKO-TEX Certified) and unique knitting patterns and details. Freyja is made entirely of one strand of a single-ply fragile Plötulopi unspun wool, resulting in it being exceptionally light and airy, with gently padded shoulders and puffed arms. Just like our Chloë cardigan, Freyja is 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. The handmade wool pom-poms and roses embroidery on this model are performed first after the piece has been knitted and by using several different stitching techniques and thread colors. Freyja takes pride in being both slowly and sustainably designed and created.

Due to the delicate collar knitting pattern, grid pattern and flower embroidery, it takes up to 9 days to create one Freyja cardigan.

SIZING: One size. The model is 175 cm/ 5′ 8″ tall. Comes in 2 lengths, 50cm and 57cm, measured from the top of the shoulder to the bottom hem.
LENGTH: 57cm/22.4”  (only 1 left), 50cm/19.6”

Details and Care

100% unspun Icelandic wool

Designed in Norway. Made in Serbia.

Freyja features a relaxed fit, statement buttoned braid-knitted collar, grid patterns, a front metal button fastening, a cable knit, and hand-embroidered pom-poms and flower details both front and back.

Freyja  is a 100% mulesing free wool garment and no animals were harmed in the wool production process. All dyes used in the colored embroidery are certified according to OEKO-TEX 100 standard, completely toxic-free and eco-friendly. Freyja 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

Freya is a must cardigan that you will wear and love for years, a high quality handmade piece that is forever a staple in your wardrobe. Gorgeous with denim, stunning over a dress. Wear it buttoned with jeans or a skirt, or unbuttoned over a silk dress, with a straw bag and low heel sandals. The ivory/off-white base of Freyja allows it to be combined with many different colors. Once ready, pass it on to your next generation or simply someone you love. It is made to last for generations.

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.
