A classic look, drawn from the archives, gets a modern update! The Dale of Norway Hovden Sweater takes an archival sweater, one of the brand's original designs, and crafts it in a more modern fit and lighter, skin-soft knit. J-sleeve sweater uses a slimmer arm and an inset, fitted shoulder seam. Skinsoft Merino Wool knit: â¢ Shorn from Merino sheep, this fine yarn is spun from long-staple fibers with tightly overlapping scales for smooth, next-to-skin softness. â¢ Crafted in a one-ply fabrication using 20.5-micron fibers. â¢ Combing process removes short fibers reducing itchy edges and the chance of pilling. â¢ Wool naturally wicks moisture away from the skin and speeds passage of vapor from perspiration for high breathability. â¢ Premium wool creates high air retention for improved thermoregulation. â¢ Lanolin inherent to the wool offers protection for improved odor resistance. Jacquard-knit pattern across the top block is designed after the Vail World Championship sweater. Stand collar. Half-zip closure with exposed zip. Rib-knit cuffs. Rib-knit hemline. Shield logo patch at the left sleeve. 100% Merino wool. Machine wash and dry flat. Made in Norway. Measurements: Length: 27 in Product measurements were taken using size MD (Men's 38-40).
