    Thank you. It’s a great fit. In a sense it’s an impostor because it’s not made in Norway but southern England (Sussex). However it’s also a better fit than the ‘real’ and admittedly old Norwegian sweaters I have. I might get the Ecru and Navy version as well.

    I have ordered the matching Ecru and Navy Norwegian from Peter Christian as they had a Free Mail offer! I couldn’t resist it because although I have a very old version in those colours the fit of the Navy and Ecru sweater (see early photos) is so good that I couldn’t resist getting its matching version. It should be arriving tomorrow!

    Cool post. Being a Norwegian it is kind of fun to see that you guys appreciate traditionally handcrafred Norwegian wool garments. A few of the most traditional and popular knit sweaters or cardigans (kofte) are "Valdres kofte", "Marius genser"(modern pattern but very popular) and "islender genser". Also check out the "Sælbuvotter", mitts with the most traditional Norwegian patterns there is...

    Above is the Ecru and Navy Norwegian I have just received from Peter Christian- the counterpart to the Navy and Ecru I acquired from them last month!

    I was wearing my Norwegian Roll neck earlier in the week, needed it when in the Pub Garden on the day we had snow in the morning.
