Knitted from premium lambswool blended with a little nylon and Lycra for added strength and stretch, these socks are designed to keep your feet warm in the coldest, darkest depths of winter. Reaching to just below the knee, they provide plenty of coverage to keep toes, feet, ankles and calves warm. The result is a luxuriously cosy pair of socks that you can wear whether you’re tramping in frozen forests or just practising a little fireside hygge.
The Skaftö design is inspired by the traditional fishermen’s sweaters of Bohuslän, a wild and rocky coastal province that borders the Skagerrak strait between Denmark, southeast Norway and the west coast of Sweden. It features a wintry pattern and a subdued colour scheme that evokes barren, snow-covered islets and skerries.
There are two reasons you’ll fall in love with Öjbro Vantfabrik’s gloves and socks. Firstly, this homely Swedish brand fuse their heritage into each design, incorporating traditional Sami patterns and cultural tales into their woolen garments. It’s a carefully considered design process that affords their garments a story as rich as the material they’re built from. Which leads into the second reason: they’re hella comfy.
Each pair of gloves and socks that Öjbro Vantfabrik produce is crafted from premium wool sourced from ethical farmers and manufactured in eco-friendly factories. The resulting apparel is ludicrously soft and comfortable, not to mention built to endure years of wear, designed to keep you warm no matter the conditions outside.
