The production style and location for the collection has been carefully selected Each knit is hand-framed in England by skilled artisans in order to ensure the absolute best quality finish. Each jumper has been made with specially sourced 100% Pure New Wool, giving the garment a rugged and functional feel with outstanding warmth.

The jumper is cut in a traditional way, with thick ribbed sleeves and hem and an overall close fit that will eventually give with wear to give personalised fit to the wearer. The cuffs are adjustable allowing the best coverage of the wrist to help lock in the heat.

The neck takes inspiration from the ‘New England’ style jumpers used by fisherman on the US East coast. Easily recognisable for its single fold and slightly lower neckline than its cousin – the submariner jumper.
