Primary language: English
🚩NOTE: CONDITION: USED but Like New.
We promote upcyclying, recycling, and reusing....so we support this effort wherever possible.
This is a used book - there is no escaping the fact it has been read by someone else and it will show small signs of wear and previous use. Overall, we expect it to be in very good condition, but if you are not entirely satisfied please get in touch with us.
Many items in The Swedish Flicka shop are new, however, I do offer some gently used and vintage items that are of excellent quality.
You don’t have to be Swedish to enjoy the art of Lagom!
Explains how to live “lagom,” or a balanced life, by cherishing relationships, improving work-life balance, freeing the home from excess clutter, and savouring good food.
Authour: Linnea Dunne...
was born and raised in Sweden, where she started her writing career as a columnist at the local newspaper at age fifteen. She left for Ireland a few years later, and eventually moved to London, where she studied Creative Writing and Political Communications. She now lives in Dublin-Ireland with her husband and two half-Swedish kids, trying to achieve that Lagom balance ~against all odds.
A very good review:
“I read this book while visiting Sweden and I can say that it is a great companion for anyone willing to dive a little deeper in the culture of a country that doesn’t impose its culture to the visitor easily (as lagom as expected).”
When I say a little deeper, I actually mean very little, as it is a leisure book, easy to read, with images and small boxes with trivia and curiosities.
Do not expect a critical view of Sweden, or some of the country hypocrisies behind such a “balanced” way of living. But again, it is a lighthearted book and it does a good job in that field. “
This is a perfect add on for any Swedish gift-but you will, no doubt, want to read first before giving it away!

Patchwork Scarf Care:
Spot clean if possible. Please follow the directions on the items tag. It will direct you to wash on delicate in a mesh/ lingerie bag or tied pillow case and make sure the water is cool.
Do NOT put the Patchwork Scarf in the dryer-let it air dry on a hanger. You may iron the cotton pieces on the front side but not the fleecy squares or the reverse fleecy side or they will most assuredly melt and stick to the iron.
There is just no way to know how each washing machine will affect the items, however, they are all sturdily made and should stand the test of time. Just give proper attention prior to washing and that will ensure that it stays in fine condition.
YES! We make everything in small batches here, so even if we use similar fabrics and patterns, and square placement, there will never ever be two Patchwork Scarves that are exactly alike. So each one is truly a unique masterpiece!
You can throw the Rag Rug into the washing machine on gentle cycle with as little agitation as possible, and air dry over a stair banister OR chair back until completely dry. However, a very old fashioned & traditional way of cleaning a Rug is the freezing snow method. On a cold, clear day (25°F/ - 3° or colder) with at least several inches of fresh powder snow, take the Rug outside and leave it for a couple of hours until it has frozen. Lay the stiff carpet in the snow and whack the exposed surface with a broom. Shake the rug out, turn it over on a fresh patch of snow, and beat the other side. If you wait for a cold, dry day, the rug will barely become wet when you clean it this way. Just brush off any loose snow before you take it inside.

Patchwork Blankie Care:
We understand baby accessories require lots of washing. So to extend the life of your Blankie, we suggest washing it on a delicate cycle. It has already been washed and dried here at our studio so we hope your washing machine is as gentle as ours.
