About the Wool
Zefir - Skinsoft Merino wool.
Our superwash merino wool is one of the finest wool qualities available. Coming from merino sheep living in a warm climate, merino has very fine and long staple fibers, giving a very smooth next-to-skin comfort. Naturally, our wool is mulesing-free. Garments knitted with Zefir can be machine washed using wool-cycle. (Fiber diameter: 20.5 micron)
The pattern design is from our original 1956 Cortina sweater – our first ever Olympic sweater made for the 1956 Winter Olympics in Cortina d’Ampezzo. The Cortina pattern captures the very essence of Norwegian tradition and has become one of Norway’s most beloved patterns.
Dalestølen is named after a summer farm in the steep mountains surrounding Dale. In the old days, this farm served as summer pasture for cattle and sheep. Today, this is a popular destination for hiking as it offers great views over the mountainous Dale area.
