This rough shawl is like an embrace for icy winter days and cool summer evenings. It's hand-knitted by skilled artisans out of naturally grey 100% Gotlandic wool. Care instructions, please air regularly. Wash, if needed, by hand or on wool cycle with mild wool detergent & let it flat dry.
To keep the sheep warm and dry there is natural lanolin in the wool fibre. During the process of prepairing the yarn the lanolin decrease. Some of the lanolin is kept in the finished product to maintain the luster, moisture-proof & stain repellant qualities of the wool. This will gradually wear away when you air, wash and care for the product. The lanolin can make your skin feel oily. You can also find lanolin in certain skin care products.
The Gotlandic sheep graze the landscapes of the island and sometime plant parts that get stuck in their pelt appear in the yarn. Most times it falls out by itself. If not, you can use your fingers to take it away if you like.
Since the wool fibre is stain repellant in itself it doesn’t need to be washed very often. If even so you need to, do it preferably by hand in luke warm water with a mild wool detergent or in a machine on wool cycle. When drying, please let it flat dry. You can also use a wool spray with natural oils to keep your product fresh. We do so before every shipping.
Each product can differ some in measurement, that is because our items are hand-knitted and every one of our artisans has their unique touch to the work.
The wool we use has not been dyed or bleeched. Therefor we like to call the colors natural.
