Combining function and fashion, the knitted and wool insulated Alvøy jacket is a new take on the traditional puffer jacket. Replacing the traditional down filling, the Alvøy is padded with wool filling from Norwegian sheep. This is a sustainable and animal friendly alternative to synthetic fiberfill and down filling.
The Alvøy jacket features a large, comfortable hood with drawstrings, a full-length front zipper, and zippered front pockets. The colorways are inspired by the mountains of west coast Norway. Thus, you can wear the Alvøy jacket as a fashion piece in the city or as a statement piece in the slopes.
The Alvøy jacket is named after a small island on the west coast of Norway. It takes its design cues from the famous Norwegian Sotra sweater, easily recognizable with a pattern of repeated eight-petal roses across. (The original Sotra sweater was part of our collection in the early 1990s).

The Alvøy jacket is made of three layers of wool: A water repellent outer layer made of 100% skin soft merino wool, a soft lining made of superfine merino wool, and a lavalan filling made of traceable virgin Norwegian wool. Being made of wool, the lavalan filling holds great insulating and moisture wicking properties, and it is also odor resistant.
Norwegian wool is one of the world’s most animal-friendly textile fibers, sourced from sheep known for roaming freely in the vast Norwegian hillsides while grazing in natural pastures. The Alvøy jacket is insulated with Norwegian wool.
