Öjbro socks are knit in Sweden using pure new Merino wool and feature patterns inspired by traditional Nordic designs. Thoughtful design features like reinforced heels and toes plus the addition of spandex for shape retention complement the softness and warmth of Merino.
Fastfolk is a Swedish term for an engaged couple. Hearts decorate this pattern with a reindeer couple and a human couple on it - it is a tribute to the unity of marriage.
From the designer, Åse Öjbro:
When you love, give everything you have. And when you reach the limit, give even more, and forget how it hurts. In the end, only the love you have given and received is counted. Your partner has chosen to share their life with you, you give your days to each other. I dedicate this pattern to all current and future couples.
