The Marius pattern was originally designed by Unn Soiland in 1953. It is named after the war hero and actor Marius Eriksen, who was photographed for the first handknitpattern. This is the most frequently handknitted pattern in Norway. Norwegians relate this to their typical sporty-outdoor culture and traditions. It is fair to call the pattern a Norwegian ikon.

Wool is a natural “high-tec” fibre and possesses a number of advantages, such as its ability to uptake and release moisture vapour up to 36% of its dry weight, while being water-repellent at the same time. Wool is a renewable resource, as you wait till the wool has grown back and then cut it again. It is also biodegradable because the hair is made up of proteins, which are yummy treats for insects and microbes.
