Green meets mint blue. Forest meets sky. From this came the idea for this knitted sweater. The yarn is 100% wool yarn from Finland and with that it was a given, the sweater would be named Fredrika.
Fredrika Runeberg lived in Finland in the 19th century. She is considered the country's first female journalist. She was also an author, social influencer, mother of eight children and caregiver of her husband. She was also a skilled gardener and was very early to start having potted plants at home.
The sweater is knitted with the yarn Tukuwool DK. The yarn is thin and fine, which creates a light and compliant sweater. The two different colors meet at different levels and thus create it irregular edge that creates an illusion of forest and sky.
If you are curious and want to feel the yarn, you can order a sample patch.
Tukuwool DK is spun and dyed in Finland from 100% Finnish wool. The wool for Tukuwool DK comes from Finnish sheep farms that breed Finnsheep and Finnsheep / Texel.
Wool-spun Finns' sheep wool is warm, airy, soft and rustic. Tukuwool DK is a genuine workhorse yarn for sweaters and accessories. The colors are deep and vibrant.
After wet blocking, the stitches relax and the fabric softens and evens out. Tukuwool DK is non-superwash treated like this wash gently by hand in cold water and allow to dry.
