The Alvar shawl is part of the beautiful and unique knitting book named Sjaler Nordfra in Danish and Nordic Shawls in English.
The book has 18 gorgeous shawls designed by Karen S. Lauger, inspired by the wild Nordic nature and the stories of the creatures that live there.

The Álvar are the Faroese hidden folk - living among cliffs and in hills. They are the invisible folk, and you had better not put too great faith in them.

Álvar er Færøernes huldrefolk, der bor i klipper og høje. De er det skjulte, usynlige folk, og man gør klogest i ikke at stole for meget på dem.
