What’s so special about it?

Close up of Hand knitted Faroese pattern jumperWhilst “Forbrydelsen” is a Danish show, the jumper is not traditional Danish. It is Faroese. The Faroe Islands lie to the north of Scotland, equidistant from Iceland, Scotland and Denmark. Faroese knitwear is very traditional, with jumpers being worn for totally practical purposes, all winter through. The wool used is undyed organic wool from hardy northern Faroese sheep. The black wool in a jumper comes from black sheep – it isn’t dyed. Organic wool is not just warm, it is lightweight, breathable and hypoallergenic. The jumper itself is hand knitted with every single one being unique.
