The Green Swan is originaly designed by Karin Ivarsson 1966, recreated by Solveig Gustafsson and Pernille Silfverberg 2015.

To recreate The Green Swan original charts were closely studied and vintage garments carefully examined in museums and private collections to make sure that the resulting patterns and yarns would match the original Bohus Stickning garments as closely as possible.

The yarn is a 2-ply, 50% angora och 50% merinoyarn. The pattern yarns are hand dyed by Pernille Silfverberg to match the original Bohus Stickning pattern colors. The green main color is dyed at the spinning mill.
The angora comes from AngoraGarnet’s own angora rabbits.
We guarantee that the rabbits are treated humanely and live healthy lives. We also guarantee that the merino wool used is produced without the controversial practise mulesing. The angorawool is processed and spun with merino wool at a family owned mill in Denmark.

Pattern copyright: Bohus Stickning. Pernille Silfverberg, AngoraGarnet has been authorized to continue the work of recreating Bohus Stickning after original Bohus Stickning such as Solveig Gustafsson began to do in 1999.
