Icelandic Design Bergen Women's Cardigan
Icelandic Design Bergen Women's Cardigan Sweaters -- When You Really Need To Keep Warm
The folks up north, near the Arctic Circle, have been battling the cold elements for centuries -- so if there is anyone who knows how to keep warm in the coldest of weather, it's them. Many, many centuries ago and they mastered the art of knitting -- and today Icelandic design Bergen women's Cardigans have become an essential item in many a ladies closet...
For example, if you head over to the Oslo Sweater Shop you can find a great Bergen cardigan sweater -- for just under $250 (at current exchange rates) you can own one of these "Bryggen" sweaters. These would make a great addition to any women's Cardigan collection -- you can purchase them in small through 2x size, in navy/smoke, sand/beige and red Rose/sand.
You can also purchase an Icelandic design Bergen women's Cardigan from the Sierra Trading Post. Currently retailing at $195.50 (their item #18940), it is available in black/light brown and features delightful red floral embroidery. This Icelandic design Bergen women's Cardigan is made from 100% lambswool and is also fully lined. It also features a full-length zipper on the front, but please make sure to dry clean it to keep it looking great. This women's Cardigan is available in sizes extra small through extra large.
While we're at it, I guess I should say a few words about caring for your Icelandic design Bergen women's cardigan sweater. As I mentioned before, it is possible to dry clean these sweaters -- and this is convenient if you don't want to take the time to try and hand wash it. However, some people believe that your Icelandic design Bergen women's cardigan sweater may experience some fading, while others believe that dry cleaning may make the woolen fibers less soft and supple. Personally, I think the jury is out on this one, so use your own judgment here.
If you do decide to hand wash your Icelandic design Bergen women's cardigan sweater, do so in water that is only moderately warm (100-110°F). Of course you will not want to use harsh soaps that are designed for use in a mechanical washing machines -- use a specially-formulated soap that is suitable for hand-washing woolen fabrics. After you have sufficiently soaped-up your cardigan sweater, then rinse it out.
Drying your Icelandic design Bergen women's cardigan sweater can prove to be a special challenge. The one thing that you do NOT want to do is to hang it on a hanger or on a clothesline. Hanging a woolen garment such as an Icelandic design Bergen women's cardigan sweater on a hanger can cause it to be pulled out of shape. In addition, if it is hung up on a clothesline the same thing can happen.
I wouldn't recommend putting your Icelandic design Bergen women's cardigan sweater in a conventional home tumble dryer either -- the best thing is simply to lay it out flat on top of a towel and let it dry. If your sweater has managed to get pulled out of shape during, you can gently pull it back into shape as it dries. Finally, if your Icelandic design Bergen women's cardigan sweater looks a little disheveled, you can take a conventional iron and press it just a little bit, making sure that your iron is set on the wool setting and nothing higher.
