The sweater is designed to be a classic, nordic and slow fashion design; a crucial part of your wardrobe, which you can benefit from for many, many years. This time, it is worked in our ultimate luxurious yarn Önling No 5, which is a mix of silk, cashmere, alpaca and wool. It couldn't be more luxurious.
The sweater is worked top down, which allows you to try on the sweater as you go and adjust it to the perfect fit for you. Initially, short rows and increases are worked at the 4 raglan seams to provide a better fit at neck and shoulders. The rest of the yoke is worked in stockinette and increases at the 4 raglan seams. The piece is then divided into body and sleeves, which are finished separately.

Wool can last for years, but it requires good care. Washing is tough on your woolen garments and in general wool needs to be washed much less than other materials as it has a self-cleaning effect. Often it is enough to hang your woolen sweater / garment outside in the humid weather or bring it with you into the bathroom, when you take a long, hot shower - the steam will often be enough to freshen it up it and remove any unwanted odors.
Specifically for knitwear knitted in Önling's Everyday Kit
Neither Önling No 12 nor No 13, is pre-washed when you receive it on cones. You get the best result if you soak your finished knitted garment in lukewarm water for approx. 2 hours. Then wash the garment as you would otherwise with washing detergent for wool, either by hand or on a wool program in your washing machine. Dry it by laying it flat.
Specifically for knitwear knitted in Önling's Silk kit
As the Silk Kit from Önling contains 3 different qualities (linen, wool and silk), we recommend that you always wash your silk sweater / garment by hand, to avoid it changing shape or appearance during wash. The three qualities will react differently to water, temperatures, etc. Önling can not take responsibility for the result if you wash your silk sweater in the washing machine. Your garment made from the silk kit should NOT be spun or tumble dried. Instead, dry it by laying it flat.
Why choose Önling?
It is our ambition to design your favorite knitwear, with a classic, versatile expression to make you feel smart and comfortable. Önling means favorite in Danish - so we take this ambition quite seriously, as we named our company after it.
