Randi at FaroeKnit has made three Christmas stockings for my daughter, my son-in-law and my grandson and each one is a beautiful keepsake! Randi has quickly responded to any questions I’ve had and you would never know we are a world away (Faroe Islands to Maine!) I highly recommend this shop to anyone seeking high quality, hand-made items!💖

I've just received the sweater.
I love the bright color and the design.
I'd like to order another combination of the color again from this shop.

I received very rapid responses to my enquiries and arranged to have a sweater custom made. I'm really happy with the result and I'm thinking of getting another made in different colours. Highly recommend!

This sweater is so lovely! It is well-made, warm, not itchy, and light-weight. I have received compliments about how good it looks! I personally love that it is “slow fashion” - the design is timeless, the construction is good quality and made with renewable materials, and the work was done by a skilled artist. I will wear it for many years to come! I will also surely be a repeat customer of Randi’s! She was very easy and pleasant to chat to! Thank you, Randi, I love my sweater!

I’m super happy with my sweater! The mix of colours gives me energy and put a smile on my face!😉💫💛☀️
The size is perfect. Fits me perfectly! Custom made it is!
To be a custom made sweater I’m impressed by how fast it was delivered.
The quality is really good.
I recommend this shop! And will for sure order from this shop again.
Warm greetings from the "Sheep Islands"
Faroeknit is all about custom made knitwear and knitting patterns, designed for adventures in the wilderness!
I’m Randi, the founder of Faroeknit. I am from the Faroe Islands in the Northern Scandinavia. I live together with my husband and 3 daughters in Vágur, located on the southernmost island of Suðuroy.
It all started in 2016. I had been home for about two years, with my youngest daughter, because of her very early debut of Diabetes Type 1. I had no job and a low income. I remember my grandma always said, use your talents, do not let them go to waste. While staying home, I reflected about my life and this: Is there something I am really good at? I have always been a creative soul, and I love to draw (even my math books were full of colours). And I love to knit. If I could combine my love of drawing and knitting, my life would be perfect! And suddenly it just made sense: Of course, knitwear designer is what I will become! My first sweater was the Bohéme sweater from 2017, and since then, I have not looked back. I live and breathe knitting and designing. I learned the art of knitting from my mom and grandma, and I have also read lots of knitting books since then.
Knitting is something that’s been practised for many generations on the Faroe Islands. We have a very strong knitting tradition. I especially love the Faroese knitting patterns, and most of my designs are based upon those, but with my own twist. This is why, you will find most of my designs in the traditional two colour fair isle patterns. My knitting patterns are in English and Danish language, and free support is included.
Besides the knitting and drawing thing, I love to read (I have a BSc in Library- and Information Science) and I love to spend time outdoors in our quirky, beautiful, rustic and windswept islands.
The sweaters from Faroeknit
A sweater is something you usually own for years. A Faroeknit sweater is the perfect choice for wool and knitwear lovers, who are passionate about nature and wilderness. I have an A-team of skillful knitters, who are committed to handmade perfection. My carefully selected team of knitters would love to knit you a warm, well fitted and fashionable sweater, customized for you!
The sweaters are hand knitted with high quality wool, customized with your own choice of colours and yarn thickness. We can offer you these 4 options:
• Thick and very warm sweaters (Faroese wool): Rustic Aran yarn, itchy.
• Thinner, but warm sweaters (Faroese wool): Softer yarn, not itchy.
• Superwash sweater: Very soft, not itchy.
• Alpaca / wool blend: Very soft, not itchy.
Brave the wilderness in a fabulous hand knitted Faroeknit sweater!
Best wishes, Randi
