The Nansen sweater is a fundamental part of Devold's brand history; named for the famous Norwegian explorer Fridtjof Nansen, who completed the first crossing of Greenland in 1888 while wearing Devold wool garments.
This updated version of the Nansen is based on sweaters that Devold has been producing for fishermen and workers on the harsh Norwegian coast since 1853. Layered under a jacket or worn on its own, this chunky wool sweater will keep you warm in the coldest weather without overheating.
Just as it did 130 years ago for Fridtjof Nansen, the Nansen sweater will perform in the toughest conditions, as the high-quality virgin wool is naturally insulating, wicking, breathable, and water repellent. Wool of this type can absorb up to 30% of its own weight in moisture without compromising its ability to insulate and keep you warm.
