The beautiful quality of this British-made knit, can be seen in every stitch. Whether paired with trousers, skirts or dresses, it works every time.
The subtle dropped sleeve with a hem that drapes rather than grips, and that 'just right' level of slouch and signature rib crew neck, ensures that the OVERSIZE is that effortless easy knit we crave at this time of year.
Knitted in a chunky 3 gauge, with 4ply wool yarn and fully-fashioned - where each piece of the jumper is knitted separately and then linked together by hand and hand-finished. This means that not only is this knit of the highest quality, but that also there is minimal, often zero, waste.
This jumper is made from 100% Superfine Lamb's Wool that is sourced from a special breed of sheep in South Africa.
With a fibre diameter of c. 18.5 microns, it is one of the world's finest and softest Lambs Wools. (Most average 21-24 microns). We have knitted this style into a luxurious 3 gauge jumper.
The wool arrives in Scotland by boat where it is spun and dyed on the banks of Loch Leven in Kinross by Todd & Duncan, one of the finest Scottish Mills which has been spinning yarn for 150+ years.
85% of the dyes used by Todd & Duncan are organic and the water used for washing and dyeing the wool is cleaned and purified before being returned to Loch Leven to be used again. It is a pioneering and cyclical process that helps to protect the environment in and around the loch.
The yarn is then sent to our London factory where our team knit and hand-finish each jumper. Due to the fully-fashioned knitting technique we employ and as we produce in small batches, there is very little yarn wastage.
The jumpers are finished with organic cotton care labels and sealed in organic cotton bags.
