Knitwear in pure linen is one of Nygardanna's specialties. All garments are fully fashion knitted using hand machines in their little studio factory in Latvia by Erica, Baiba and their colleagues. To knit fully fashion means that you knit each garment part separately and shape it just like you do when you hand knit. Knitting like this compared to knitting a big fabric and then cut and sew it is that you hardy waste any material at all. If you look closely at armholes and neck lines you will see the beautiful fully fashioned loops creating the shape. Counting loops, rather than inches, secures the high quality of their knitted garments.
The sweater is pre-washed and pre-shrunk. At first the linen will feel a bit harsh but as soon as you start wearing the garment it will become softer and softer with a luster almost like silk. Press your garment lightly with steam after wash. Wash by hand or in a machine, but only if you have special hand wash program. Dry flat.
