Cashmere Ski Race Knit Sports Club - Vassaloppet
Alps & Meters
Inspired by Sweden’s first King, Gustav I, who, on skis, rallied the men of his country to rebellion and independence which was stoked in the city of Sälen and from which the modern-day Vassaloppet ski race is begun in 1922.
A celebration of the holy trinity of ski racing, the Ski Race Knit “Sports Club” evokes the heritage and tradition of the 1922 Vasaloppet Cross Country Race, the 1927 Mount Moosilauke Carriage Road Race, and the 1928 Murren Inferno. Emblazoned with the inaugural year of each storied race and with color applications inspired by each event’s point of origin, this classic knitwear garment is woven of 100% cashmere Italian yarn from the historic Botto Giuseppe mill of Valle Moso.
