The wool used for this lovely cardigan is the Faroese Sirri wool yarn. Sirri yarn is 100% pure organic wool from the Faroe Islands. The wool has a rich texture and has not been chemically treated. It has a high lanolin content and has a comforting feel and smell. In the wild climate of the Faroe Islands, the sheep grow a thick coat with a rugged texture, which produces a yarn that may feel coarse to people who are used to commercially processed yarns. But once you give your knitting a bath, you will see it transformed into a soft, light and gentle fibre, and makes the piece weatherproof.

The pattern. The Faroese have a long tradition of knitting (hand knitting of course). The winter nights can be very long in this northern part of Europe and cold too. Knitting was traditionally what the women on the Islands tended to - knitting socks, underware and sweaters for themselves and their children, but mostly for their husbands and adult sons who went to sea. Not only has knitting a long history and tradition on the Faroe Islands, so does creating your own pattern. This pattern is inspired by the many beautiful Faroese Patterns - but this one, is a Shisa Brand pattern.
