Öjbro Gotland Woollen Socks

This beautiful pair of the warmest woollen socks you will ever own is knit in a pattern called Gotland. This Öjbro Gotland Woollen Socks design is inspired by the ponies of Gotland’s Lojsta Moor. It is patterned and dyed in traditional Swedish colours.

Traditional Swedish company Öjbro Vantfabrik creates designs with stories (as a good design should do). The story of the Gotland Socks comes from the island of Gotland — Sweden’s largest island. Gotland has, since after the last Ica Age, been the home of the “Gutes” tribes; large tribes of small, resilient ponies living in the island’s forested moors.

Of the legendary Skogsbaggarna, a nickname given to the horses by locals referring to their strength and size, only one herd is left today. Öbjro Vantfabrik’s designer Åse Öjbro visited the island as a child, and was fascinated by the mythical horses. The design is a celebration of the Skogsbaggarna, depicting both the pine trees and the herd.

Öjbro Gotland Woollen Socks are available in two colour variations: brown and kalk.
Although the design pleasantly reminds of cosy winterwalks and candelit evenings, you can wear the socks in many different ways. A little (colour) inspiration can be found on Öjbro’s instagram page — the crisp images of Sweden in Winter make any folklover’s heart beat faster 🙂
