This listing is for a made-to-order icelandic sweater, called a lopapeysa.
It means I hand knit this jumper using your measurements to be sure to get the best fit. At the moment it is only for adults sizes, not children.
I hand knit this sweater using only icelandic pure wool, which is the best quality, ethical too. The sheep from Iceland are known to have a resistant and soft wool, to endure the harsh weather. This sweater will provide you the same coziness, warmth and protection. Pure wool provides a fair amount of stretch so keep that in mind when taking your measurements.

Making yourself or someone else the gift of a handmade knitted garment is an investment. Investment meant financial but for life too. You are purchasing a piece of clothing created with care, with love, that you will be able to wear for a long time, maybe even becoming a heirloom, who knows.
If this sweater is kept from moths, humidity, aired frequently and seldom washed, as I knitted it with first choice pure wool, you are guaranteed to have this clothing wearable all your life and longer.

We discuss in private messages the 4 colours (could be knitted with only 2 or 3 colors if wanted) you want to pick (if available in the icelandic wool I use of course), if they will contrast well to be sure the pattern of the yoke (collar design) will show properly. Depending on your measurements, I will refer to the pattern and knit the equivalent size (I will tell you which measures I need).
I will need you to provide me few measures:
Armpit to wrist length, chest circumference (at the largest part of your bust), waist circumference.

•As I hand knit this jumper, it takes quite some time therefore please allow me a month per sweater (more or less) to create and finish it.
After I have knitted your lopapeysa, I give it its first wash to give it its final form.

•Please remember, as I only use pure wool, to never wash it in warm water. Handle carefully, wash it by hands only when needed, in a cold bath with a specific wool soap. Do not twist it while wet, press the excess water out and let it dry flat on a towel. Never hold your wet sweater vertically as the fibers would loosen up and your garment would enlarge by the weight of the wet wool. I can not be taken responsible if you damage your sweater. Air your sweater often but wash it only when really necessary and rarely.

As I hand knit this lopapeysa depending on your colour choices and measurements, unless I did a mistake I do not accept returns/refunds but please message me if you have any questions/issues.

The balls of yarns’ cost is included in the price, I will not charge more if you are a size XL nor will I charge less for a size XS.

I will send you this sweater as a priority maxi letter NOT including tracking number. You can purchase a tracking number while placing your order. If so, I will let you know what is your number I’ve brought your package to the post office. Understand also that I can not be taken responsible for the possible custom fees. I am based in Finland meaning if ordering outside Europe you might get customs fees to pay to receive your package. Please contact your customs office to know more.

Pictured are different icelandic sweaters I knitted myself, serving as exemples, helping you visualise the pattern and possible results depending on colour choices.

The pattern used is Riddari by Védís Jónsdóttir.
