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.
Skogen is a pattern inspired by the Swedish concept of ‘allemansrätten’, everyman’s right to roam in nature. In Sweden this includes the right to hike across or camp on someone’s land, boat on their waters and pick wildflowers, mushrooms and berries – provided you cause no harm or disturbance, leave no litter, nor damage wildlife or crops. This universal right applies to everyone, which is symbolically depicted here by the noble elk, the king of the forest, in dialogue with the humble raven.
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.
