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.
The Sami people are an ethnic minority in Norway, Sweden, & Finland, where they inhabit the Lapland region, an area in the north of these Scandinavian countries. The city of Lycksele was founded in Lapland over 400 years ago and became an important settlement for the Sami. This pattern takes inspiration from the “vasterbotten drall” weave technique of the Sami people and is colored with traditional Sami colors.
