Laumės Merino Wool Sweater - Baltic Blue
This knit was named "Laumės" after the very oldest goddesses of Lithuanian mythology. These beautiful fairies descended from sky to earth and lived in dewy fields or dense forests, near rivers, swamps and lakes. They'd gather at night under new moon — dancing in circles — to call the rain and create thunder storms, and were considered guardians of nature. They often appeared naked or wearing fine airy clothing. The knit is our take on what a modern day Laumė would wear.
