About the Wool
Plover - Long-lasting Norwegian wool
A proprietary blend of wool produced in Norway from Norwegian sheep.
Due to this yarn’s unique qualities and consistent popularity, this wool quality has been a part of our family since 1939!
Norwegian wool is one of the world’s most animal-friendly textile fibers, due to the sheep’s natural mountain life. This yarn offers an authentic look renowned for its uniquely crisp look and longevity.
Garments knitted with Plover needs to be hand washed. (Fiber diameter: 33 micron)
To achieve an 8000 mm waterproof rating, our sweaters are knitted with Norwegian wool treated with Teflon. This treatment also adds extra dirt resistance. Our sweaters are lined with a wind proof lining made of a polyester/polyurethane blend. This provides for comfortable sweaters with high breathability, keeping you warm and dry on windy days, in light showers. Please note that these sweaters are water resistant, not waterproof.
Teflon is made from the same material used in Gore-Tex and other waterproof textiles: polytetrafluoroethylene
This is an outer layer interpretation of our timeless bestseller: the Vail sweater, with design based on the traditional eight-petal rose pattern. The Vail sweater was the official team sweater for the US Alpine- and Snowboard team for the 2006-07 season.
