Norwegian Holiday Sweaters

One might not automatically think of Norwegian sweaters as being holiday sweaters, but there is actually nothing that quite captures the essence of the winter season and the accompanying holiday celebrations quite like an authentic Norwegian sweater! They are warm, cozy, snuggly, and quite possibly, the perfect winter sweater. Now, with some festive adornments and holiday patterns woven right in, the Norwegian holiday sweater is this year's must have... and will be for many years to come!

Norwegian sweaters are classically thick, heavy, and weatherproof, so they can be worn in the coldest of climates. They were designed this way, often for Norwegian fisherman who needed some substantive layers underneath their fishing gear to keep them warm and keep the water from their skin.

To make the Norwegian sweater a classic holiday sweater, sweater-makers are varying from the classic crème colored, and venturing into red and green dyed wool. For those looking for something more subtle, Norwegian sweaters also come in equally as festive and vibrant hues like royal blue and bright purple.

The holiday Norwegian sweater can be dressed down with a pair of jeans, or dressed up with some leggings and knee-high boots. Men can also take advantage of the Norwegian sweater by sporting it casually, with some winter khakis, or turning the style up a notch and wearing it with some dress slacks.
