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
There is a note of both the 50s and the 60s in the Vilja hoodie. The design elements are amplified, featuring the classic Norwegian eight-petal rose, the cross known from the Setesdal and Cortina pattern, and the lice pattern.
“Vilja” is a Nordic feminine given name meaning both “richness” and “grain”, but also “will”. The will to see things afresh. The will to pass on the very best of our Norwegian design history.
