Guðrun & Guðrun SPRUCE Jumper
Special Hand-knitted sweater, joy and vibrancy in your wardrobe!
Super soft and beautiful.
As a cardigan, jacket, a lovely sweater.
Material: 90% alpaca 10% wool.
The vision of Gudrun&Gudrun is to make a difference. That is very simple and yet very ambitious. Making clothes that meet the standards of conscious customers who care about each other, the environment, our common natural resources and still want to be stylish.
Loose knit and I recommend hand washing seedy if needed. A night in the great outdoors does a lot. Rub carefully and not roughly. Then dry flat.
THE MAJOR PART OF THE COLLECTION IS HANDMADE BY FAROESE, JORDANIAN AND PERUVAN WOMEN.
OUR MOST SOLD EVER LINE OF CLASSIC SWEATERS IS MADE FROM 100% UNTREATED AND UNDYED FAROESE WOOL. THE FAROESE SHEEP ARE LIVING IN THE MOUNTAINS ALL YEAR ROUND – LIVING ON UNFERTILIZED GRASS.
THE FAROESE YARN AND LAMBSKINS USED IN THE G&G PRODUCTION ARE WASTE PRODUCTS. THE SHEEPS ARE KEPT FOR THE MUTTON, SO NO ANIMALS ARE USED FOR OUR PRODUCTION ONLY. IN OUR NEW ACCESSORIES LINE WE USE FISH LEATHER. THIS IS ALSO A WASTE PRODUCT. THE FISH IS CAUGHT FOR EATING – AND WE MAKE USE OF THE SKIN.
ON WORLD MAPS THE FAROE ISLANDS ARE VERY OFTEN FORGOTTEN. IF YOU ARE LUCKY YOU WILL FIND THEM AS TINY SPOTS IN THE NORTH ATLANTIC. SO TINY AND STILL THE FRAMES OF THE MYRIAD OF LIFE.
THE HANDMADE PRODUCTION IS JOINTLY PRODUCED BY FAROESE, JORDANIAN AND PERUVAN WOMEN. WE HAVE OUR OWN WOMEN´S EMPOWERMENT PROJECT IN JORDAN BECAUSE “WE BELIEVE THAT WOMAN EMPOWERMENT ALL STARTS WITH THE OPPORTUNITY TO EARN YOUR OWN MONEY”. WE KNOW THE PHILOSOPHY OF OUR SUPPLIERS. THEY ARE ALL FROM THE EUROPEAN UNION AND THEY ALL FOLLOW ENVIRONMENTAL AND ETHICAL RULES SET BY THE EUROPEAN UNION.
