SE28 Black British Wool Guernsey Unisex SweaterRegular price £112.50
A classic woollen Guernsey with textured moss stitch, square cut and cosy fit. It still smells like a sheep, but is softer than it is itchy.
Also known as a gansey, the traditional fisherman's sweater was hard-wearing, thick and exceedingly woolly. You would also find that the jumper's textured yoke told land folk what area of the coast you came from. Our Guernsey is based on the classic, but with a softer wool so that you'll want to wear it day in day out. It's a collaboration with UK manufacturers, and made with 100% British wool.
- Based on the classic Guernsey sweater with textured yoke, square cut and split hem for comfort and ease of movement
- Ribbed neck and cuffs for a true fit so that you stay cosy inside
- Contrasting textures (rib, moss and purl) make for a really interesting knit, while offering movement and warmth in particular areas
- Square cut and shorter body with squared arm hole for that classic boxy fit
- Inherently unisex due to the cut and purpose
- Traditional knit with original details available in four classic colourways (select your colour above)
