The design takes its name after an old farmstead in Bergen. Alvøen is one of the oldest and best kept industrial sites in Norway. The mill as well as the old farmsteads was turned into a museum and it is well worth a visit. The small and whitewashed houses the workers lived in at the time of the mill have been renovated and are very popular for people who wants to live in the area of Bergen, if a bit on the costly side. The cardigan is lightly patterned with a full zip and fleece lined collar, knitted in 100% wool. A light structural pattern covers the body of the jacket in the main colour while there is an elegant and traditional pattern across the chest. Down each side of the body there is a rib to give a better fit and excellent mobility.

My husband and I visited your shop in Bergen in 2017. My husband bought that cardigan for himself and a jacket for me. This summer he lost his beloved cardigan on a walk. For his birthday I'm giving him the same cardigan again. Best present ever.
