Born in Bavaria, Germany, Astrifa’s traditional alpine style knitting brings an offering of cardigans, sweaters, scarves, woolly hats to Jackson Hole as part of their designer event this Thursday, January 16 through Saturday, January 18 at Belle Cose Four Seasons Resort Teton Village.
Knitting offers endless possibilities of shapes, colors, and qualities. Much more than just simple rows of stitches, their products are the result of an age-old interaction between man and machine at their home in mountainous Bavaria, Germany.
Founded by Richard Hawranek in 1948 Astrifa has been creating their knitwear for over seventy years. Using patterns and designs traditional to the region, the integrity of Astrifa sweaters and accessories is still found in their use of pure sheep’s wool and expertise of their artisan team. Sheep’s wool is a natural fiber and a renewable raw material that mankind has been processing for thousands of years. The journey of Astrifa’s raw material begins in Geelong, Australia, a place famous for its long fibers’ merino wool ideal for felting. Carefully selected spinning mills in the European Union process the raw fleeces into woolen yarn in different colors and qualities. From this selection, Astrifa uses only the highest quality tiered materials in order to achieve the best results in terms of comfort.
Designer Event – Belle Cose Four Seasons Resort Teton Village (located next to the spa on the main level) January 16 – 18. A curated collection will also be available in-store following the designer event. Pieces start at $190.00.
