This beautiful jacket is inspired by Norwegian rosemaling (literally “rose painting”). Rosemaling is an ornamental decorative painting style deeply rooted in Norwegian folk art, known for its powerful yet refined use of colors. The tulip is a key element in the asymmetric pattern on this jacket. The blue colorway is closest to the original rosemaling, the two others featuring more subdued colors. If you like your jacket a tad more discrete, check out Kvinesdal’s elegant rosemaling sister, the Kviteseid jacket.
Fittingly, the Kvinesdal jacket is made of 100% fine Norwegian wool. By selecting the finest wool from the sheep’s very first shearing, the fibers are short, giving us a finer and softer yarn. The outcome is thin, light and soft garments, while maintaining the brilliance, crimp and longevity for which Norwegian wool is world renowned. For extra comfort, the neck is lined with soft merino wool.

Norwegian wool is one of the world’s most animal-friendly textile fibers, due to the sheep’s natural mountain life. Our Norwegian wool comes from sheep known for roaming freely in the vast Norwegian hillsides while grazing in natural pastures.
To make it machine washable the Heron yarn undergoes a revolutionary new wool treatment using natural non-toxic salts. Machine wash using wool-cycle. (Fiber diameter: 30.5 micron)
