The Alpine Sweater: A Journey Through Time

The alpine sweater, also known as the Fair Isle or Nordic sweater, has a storied history rooted in the Scandinavian and Alpine regions. Originally crafted for function in harsh climates, these sweaters were designed to protect against the chill of the mountain air. They featured intricate patterns and were typically made of natural wool, providing warmth and durability. Over time, these practical garments evolved into fashion statements that transcend seasons.
