This classic never out of style or fashion toasty warm handknit HUSFLIDEN brand Nordic sweater is straight off the rack from a now closed and once locally famous store called "The Unique" as in Ewe for sheep. The proprietress, named Eva, was a native of Norway and her shop was almost like a museum; full of knitting, fibre art, weaving and even rug hooking supplies. Lots of new old stock left over from the 1950-1960 era.

I learned so much about wool and yarns from all over the world at this incredible Estate liquidation sale. One type of wool in particular was new to me but now I know it is the premier knitting yarn of Norway. It is called RAUMA GARN- that is Norwegian for YARN. The RAUMA brand is sold exclusively in specialty shops here in the US and is carried by the HUSFLIDEN shops in Norway. What is so special about RAUMA GARN ?- Besides being the highest quality Virgin Wool it has another really amazing property. It naturally repels moths.

At this sale I also purchased an entire Folio of vintage 1960's HUSFLIDEN knitting patterns. They are printed in Norwegian which besides the word for yarn, I do not understand. The photos of the tradional Nordic sweaters and other knitwear are what attracted me.

Along with this genuine HUSFLIDEN Handknit Sweater with tradional Pewter buttons you will also receive the actual HUSFLIDEN shop pattern for this exact sweater, Pattern # 419! Full instructions for how this sweater is knit in Norwegian is on reverse. How cool is that? The sweater is new old stock, never worn, and even comes with a little hank of extra yarn for repairs down the road and an extra Pewter button. I remember reading somewhere that the Pewter buttons are made by Trolls. There was even an original store sample card I bought for a brand of Pewter Buttons call TROLL TINN.

Colors are very attractive! Winter White main body with traditional Nordic pattern knit with Dark Forest Green, Grass Green, and Copenhagen (color of a Blue Jay) Blue.

There is no size on the tag but I think it is a SMALL

Here are the measurements:
Chest: 32" armpit to armpit measured all around
Length: 24"
Sleeve Length: 23"

With purchase you will also receive the Provenance of the sweater. I am sending along an article with Eva's photo in her shop and information about it.

So there you have it. You get an authentic Vintage Nordic Sweater, new old stock, with original HUSFLIDEN Pattern , extra button and yarn and provenance. If this is your size or if it will fit someone on your holiday gift list then you will find none better.

All my items are from smoke free estates and my smoke free home. This sweater has been properly stored in my cedar chest and smells sweet and clean.
