Övik Knit Women's Sweater - Dark Navy
Sold Out £130.00
Beautifully traditional patterned knit sweater from Sweden’s Fjällräven in a soft, warm wool. The round neck, snug-fitting raglan cut and reinforcements on the elbows make for a durable and comfortable knit that will be worn for winters to come.
The Övik Knit Sweater has excellent functionality as wool wicks away moisture from base layer garments and is one of few fibres that warms even when damp. Perfect as an insulating middle layer under a shell jacket, or together with a down vest, for example, on warmer days. Round neck and raglan sleeves with reinforced elbows, ribbed edging at sleeve cuffs and hem.

PROVENANCE AND ETHICS
The story behind Fjällräven began in 1950 when Åke Nordin, a 14-year-old boy from Örnsköldsvik in Northern Sweden, was about to go for a trek in the mountains. Åke, who spent more time outdoors than indoors, did not like the backpacks that were available at that time. He decided to take matters into his own hands and built a wooden frame.
