Finnish linen sweater
We make knitwear in linen. The linen we use is organic flax, which comes to us from Italy. We make linen jackets, linen blouses, linen tunistraws and linen dresses.
Purchase of linen sweater shows responsibility
Flax is one of the oldest crops. It's been used as a material for thousands of years. The properties of linen have pleased people throughout the ages. Flax fibres are largely cellulose, just like cotton. The chemical properties are approximately the same as those of cotton. However, the cultivation of these materials differs greatly from each other. While cotton needs large amounts of irrigation water, linen thrives in dryer habitats and does not require irrigation. The cultivation of flax protects groundwater. The use of plant protection products is limited. The manufacturer of the yarn we use does not use any chemical pesticides at all.
Linen sweater is now fashionable
Although flax has a chemical composition similar to cotton, the texture of the flax is still more porous than that of cotton and the moisture is better absorbed into the linen. Linen is dirt repellent, wear resistant, breathable, moisture-absorbing and heat-conducting. The knit made of linen feels warm in cool and cool with warm air. Flax fibre is strong, but its folding duration is weak and it is rigid as fibre. Woven linen fabric wrinkles easily. Due to its stiffness and weak bending duration, knitting linen is technically quite demanding. However, the knitting form an elassy bond, which makes flax knitting less sensitive, like the fabric.

Merino wool knitwear
We manufacture merino wool knitting bags, merino wool sweaters and merino wool accessories. These accessories include beanies, scarves and mittens. Many of the merino wool knitwear we manufactured were designed by Kaislakerttu Lehtovaara. We also manufacture ugly truth sweaters created by Helsingin sanomat, the material of which is also merino wool. The ugly truth about the sale of sweaters we pay the John Nurminen Foundation 10%, this goes to the protection of the Baltic Sea.
Manufacture of wool sweaters
We use a lot of colours in knitwear designed by Kaislaketu. In their manufacture, we use a slightly different knitting technique and a special knitting machine. Thanks to this special machine, we are able to use an abnormal number of colors in one knit. One sweater can contain up to 22 yarns of different colors.

From our customers
The Forest knitting came in really quickly to the near post office and was very much in line with my expectations! The material feels soft and comfortable on top, not itching unlike many other sweater. I use sizes S and M, and ordered an S-size from the Forest knitwear, which suited me well (left suitably loose, how happy I am to wear my sweaters). Overall a lovely product!
The knitwear is really beautiful, of high quality, wonderfully soft and carefully finished. I can warmly recommend! Ordering was easy and delivery really fast. Another added point is that the knitwear is quite loose in dimensioning. For me (for an M-L size, 175cm long) s-size was suitable for sleeves and shoulders, but otherwise quite over-sized.
