I spent several weeks researching and putting together Latvian symbols to put as much ancient energy as possible into this knit to help you deal with this crazy, crazy world. Its time to reconnect with our roots and heal ourselves so we can heal our planet. Ancient civilizations knew how to live in harmony with the earth, lets learn from them.
Chunky knit and completely reversible, switch sides according to your mood for the day. I knit this with a combination of local grown Latvian wool, kid mohair, cotton and silk. All the colors are hand blended during the knitting process. I hand sew the seams using scrap ends from my other sweaters leaving knot ends as a boho touch. Its part of my zero waste attempt. I PREWASHED this sweater on a wool cycle and then laid it flat to dry, so go ahead and do the same. It may slightly shrink in length with repeated machine washing (wool cycle) so the sleeves and length are generously long.
