'Vinterdis', known in English as 'The Winter Haze', was designed for Bohus Stickning by Annika Malmström-Bladini in 1957. 

The knitting kit for Vinterdis was developed in 2015 from original charts and garments held in museum collections. The design is only available as knitting kit for pullover /cardigan with a round yoke.

The garment is knitted on light gray-beige base in an angora yarn spun from 50% hand-cut angora wool from our own angora rabbits and 50% New Zealand merino wool. The pattern yarns are hand-dyed by Pernille Silfverberg to match the original yarns. The yarn is spun in Denmark at Henrichsens uldspinderi.
