Peaceful Christmas time for everyone! ❤️

After a while, Vietto is participating one sales event before Christmas, Stromfors Iron mill Christmas 2021 in Ruotsinpyhtää. As we are still having a global pandemia, the big events in Helsinki didn’t feel like a good idea. It would still be nice to meet customers in some lovely Christmas event and Stromfors Iron mill Christmas surely is such! It’s worth a visit from a bit further, the place is very charming old iron mill with wonderful old buildings and absolutely beautiful milieu. There’s also delightful Christmas decoration all over!

Stromfors Iron mill Christmas event will be open at Saturday the 4th and Sunday the 5th of December from 10 am to 3 pm. Stromfors Iron mill is only about an hour away from Helsinki, and Loviisa, Porvoo, Kotka, Hamina and Kouvola are even more near. More information about the event in Finnish here: Strömforsin ruukin joulu 2021

Vietto stock sale will be arranged from 25th to 30th November this autumn. Stock sale will be online event only at Vietto webshop, let’s see if the situation is better for meeting personally next spring. Vietto stock sale is a perfect opportunity to make great finds as there will be loads of samples, last pieces and mildly second quality garments at very friendly prices. There will be own section for stock sale pieces so it’s easy to browse them. Selection will be updated during the event so it’s a good idea to check the selection more than once. There has been some lagging problems in the webshop earlier during the stock sale events because of huge amount of visitors so that is also a reason for updating the selection during the event. Many products are available only in very small batches so it’s better to grab your finds quickly, they might sell out soon!

Vietto Korpi pocket cardigan is super warm piece of clothing! Model: Piritta Lehtinen

Merino wool is super comfy material in the winter time. Knit is soft and not itchy, and even thin merino wool knit is warm. Vietto is using Finnish made 100% mulesing free merino wool knit made by Orneule. However, merino wool is slightly delicate material and it needs a bit care to stay beautiful.

Generally speaking, the softer the knit the more delicate it is. Friction may cause bobbles to the surface of a soft wool knit. It’s recommendable to avoid rough materials in frequent contact with knit like handbag straps, jeans rivets and such. Bobbles can be removed carefully by hand, with cashmire comb or electronic bobble remover. After mechanical lint removal it’s suggested to iron the knit with steam. Bobbles may occur first, but their number decreases.

If your merino wool knit gets unused for a longer time period, it would be a good idea to store the knit in a lidded close-knit plastic box or in a sealable plastic bag. This will prevent wool-eating bugs attacking your precious knits. Unfortunately insects that eat natural fibers are relatively common in apartments and the first notice of them might be the little holes in merino wool knits. Vietto’s merino wool garments are always 100 % merino wool and they have not handled with pesticides. So if bugs get in touch with your knits, they might happily munch on your cardigan or dress with good appetite! It’s quite easy to recognize the marks, bugs leave small holes that appear after washing or using the wool garment.

Clothing made of merino wool knit do not need to be washed very often, airing them out is proper way of fresh them up. When washing up is needed, carefully hand wash or use hand wash or wool wash program of your washing machine with max 30oC water temperature. Use detergent meant for wool and silk. Vietto merino wool knits are designed in a way that decreases the urge for washing. Sleeves are pretty loose around the armpit, so the knit is not contacted in that area. With adequate care merino wool knits stay beautiful over time and they are always lovely to wear!
