The pattern "Ekshärad" is named after a small village in Sweden known for its famous 17th century wood church with a graveyard that holds 500 iron crosses shaped like 'trees of life'. The design is inspired by the iron crosses and the tree of life symbol that represents the history of the region.

Sizes can lightly differ between different models because of the design. For example, some Ekshärad designs are a little shorter and Lycksele designs are slightly tighter than others, due to a higher number of threads. Also Mittens should feel a bit large when you try them for the first time as wool molds to your hand shape after a while.
