Dale of Norway Collection 2019 – selected news

140th ANNIVERSARY

To mark our 140th Anniversary, we have created two new designs: A beautiful women’s jacket and a handsome men’s sweater. These garments pay homage to the Norwegian knitting tradition we have been a part of for 140 years. The classic women’s jacket features the traditional Norwegian eight-petal rose, a long-time motif of ours. The rose is updated with softened edges, making a feminine form with rounded petals. The men’s sweater features the traditional Norwegian eight-petal rose combined with pattern from the Setesdal male folk costume. This sweater also has Norwegian-made pewter buttons on the cuffs. Both garments have braided side panels and the letters CXL, the Roman numerals for 140, discretely integrated in the back.

 

 

MORGEDAL

We go back in time with this classic and sporty sweater. With a classic V-neck, this design has been worn by countless ski athletes since the 1920s. Fittingly, it takes its name from the Morgedal valley, known to be the cradle of skiing. Made with 100% premium skin soft merino wool in a patent-knit with a comfortable stretch. To top it off, we’ve added a little Dale signature in the back of the neck.

GEILO

Our Geilo family has grown! To accompany our Geilo sweaters, we welcome the arrival of new Geilo jackets, Geilo dress, Geilo skirt, and even a matching Geilolia hat. All made with 100% skin soft merino wool in a stretchy rib knit quality. As any active family, they are featuring sporty colorways. The jacket and dress have long sleeves with thumb holes, and the jacket has a two-way zipper. The Geilo jacket (in color Black/Off White/Raspberry) is the official sweater for the Norwegian Alpine ski team during the 2019 – 2020 season. How about that?

 

 

FONGEN WEATHERPROOF

This sporty and weatherproof sweater has a breathable windproof liner, water-repellent wool and soft cuffs with thumb holes. Inspired by the pattern from the famous Selbu-mitten, it’s named after the highest mountain in the Selbu area. The women’s version has a softened version of the eight-petal rose and a feminine fit. Both sweaters are stain-resistant and have two zippered pockets in front. Colorways: Navy/Off White and Black/Off White.

 

 

ISBJØRN

A fashionable and comfortable unisex sweater made with super-soft merino wool. With a diagonal zipper from shoulder to neck, a large polar bear on the chest (an old Norwegian knitting tradition), and the Dale-name in big letters on the sleeve. Isbjørn is Norwegian for polar bear.

 

 

FALUN

Based on our bestseller from the Falun Cross Country World Championship in 1993, this sweater is knitted with a soft and loosely spun yarn from a 50/50 alpaca and wool blend. The design originates from a time where knitting technology made big Jacquards possible, now updated with a young, wide and contemporary fit.

 

 

DALE CHRISTMAS COLLECTION

A classic, yet sophisticated Christmas collection, inspired by the Norwegian Christmas: Reindeer, Christmas trees, falling snow – it’s all there. And in the center, like a Christmas star, the traditional Norwegian eight-petal rose. The Dale Christmas sweaters, hats and scarves are all madewith 100% soft and light merino wool. It’s classy for the indoors, yet toasty for the outdoors.

With matching, itch-free kids’ sweaters, there is only one thing to do: Outfit the family for this year’s Christmas photo!

 

 

INGEBORG

A long and comfortable jacket with a loose fit to suit women of all sizes. Detailed patterns and side slits add the perfect amount of femininity to this elegant piece. Made with 100% soft and lightweight merino wool in a long-lasting knitting quality.
