This Vintage 1983 Norwegian Langrennsportens Venner Red Beanie with Blue & White writing and red pom pom on string is delightful!
Translated (I believe), Langrennsportens Venner means "Friends of Cross-Country Sports". This club was founded in 1972 and aims to raise funds for Norwegian cross-country skiing. In particular, the club wants to support the investment in the transition between the junior and senior class. The association's income is based on membership.
The cross country skiing culture is deeply rooted in the Norwegian spirit, so much so that it is popularly said that every Norwegian is born with skis on their feet.
