Islender is a Scandinavian term for a thick work shirt or sweater made of wool. These sweaters have been worn by fishermen and other workers for generations. Traditionally, these sweaters were knitted in a black and white pattern. The name Isleder is most likely derived from the Icelandic Company, which connected the coastal communities on the North Sea with trade and shipping.

Wool is antibacterial and odor resistant. Woolen clothing therefore does not need to be washed often. Hang the garment outside to air it out occasionally and it will freshen up quickly. If you still want to wash the garment, we recommend Texelana Wool Detergent . Always look at the label in the garment for washing instructions and always let woolen clothing lie flat to dry. Never rub hard when washing by hand to prevent felting.

If you treat your woolen garment as described above, it will not only stay nicer and last longer; you also save the environment by airing instead of washing.

Store woolen clothes

We recommend that you store your woolen clothing clean, possibly with a bag of lavender; this keeps the moths at bay. It is also best to store woolen clothing lying down, so that the elasticity of the wool is not affected.

Pills and fluff

Wool can pill or pill due to use. This has nothing to do with the quality of the wool. Pilling is a natural phenomenon that is mainly caused by friction. Wool consists of many hairs with a natural frizz (curl). Friction can cause the wool to pill and felt. When felting, the hairs join together due to friction. In fact, every movement causes friction. You often find the lint/pills on the sleeves and under the armpits. 

New clothing may sometimes have some loose hairs left behind after the weaving and knitting process.

Unfortunately, pills and lint on your beautiful (merino) woolen clothing cannot be prevented. We have some tips on how to delay this process somewhat and how to remove the lint and pills. For this information we refer to our blog.

About Bråtens

In 1955, Bråtens was founded under the name Eskimo. Eskimo supplied socks to the Norwegian, Danish and Swedish armies. The range was soon expanded to include sweaters, jackets, hats and mittens. After the takeover by Loxy AS, the name Eskimo was changed to Bråtens. 

Bråtens focuses on creating sustainable products. There have been major developments in the past 10 years when it comes to sustainable materials and production. In addition, Bråtens ensures that working conditions for production abroad are good. Bråtens is convinced that openness, focus and sharing knowledge regarding a cleaner clothing industry is the key to the future.

The wool that Bråtens uses for its products comes from Norwegian sheep. Norwegian farmers attach great importance to animal welfare. The animals live outside for most of the year. In addition, little antibiotics are used. This benefits the quality of the wool. Further in the process, when processing the wool, biodegradable detergents are used and the wool grease is used for cosmetics. All packaging materials are also recycled.

In addition, Bråtens uses Australian merino wool for socks and underwear. Naturally, wool that is mulesing-free is used.
