Isling Icelandic sweater by Önling, No 1 knitting kit
Isling Icelandic sweater from Önling, No 1 knitting kit
The Isling Sweater has been inspired by the Nordic winter, nature, sea, and sand dunes, as well as the need for a warm and comfortable sweater. Last Christmas I was in my summer house in North Jutland and desperately needed an ISLING.
IS (Danish for ’ice’), wind, snow, storm, and LING = my favorite, a darling. By combining the two words the name of the sweater came to me. This is my all-time warm and cozy sweater that I love to wear. The first one I made is huge and oversize, intended for wearing on top of everything else as an outer garment. I have worn it all winter, every morning after my winter swim. First, I would stand on it, on top of a small towel, in the ‘bath house’, to keep my feet warm, and then I would put it on. The yarn used for the sweater is our own sustainable Önling No 1, which is perfect for Icelandic sweaters and fair isle patterns. The design is somewhat oversize, with approx. 10 cm / 4 inches of positive ease, to leave room for having several layers of clothing underneath when you go outside. If you want a tighter fit, you can make it one size smaller.

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.
We serve customers worldwide!
Unfortunately, regulation, distances and language barriers make this a complex task, so in order to best serve all our customers we have set up 3 different web shops targeted to different countries.
Önling is based in Denmark, part of the European Union, so the main distinction is that we have to charge Danish VAT of 25% when selling to countries within the EU. Customers from countries outside of the European Union can purchase our products without paying VAT. Customers within the EU should therefore visit our EU store, whereas customers outside the EU should visit our international INT store. Both these stores are in English, so in addition to this we have a web shop in Danish for our Danish customers (who also pay VAT).
