Modern, easy elegance
Relaxed, modern, to be lived in – every jumper we create at Navygrey is underpinned by these three core design principles, and the EASY is testament to that.
The EASY sits comfortably between all that you love about the RELAXED and the OVERSIZE. With its slightly shorter boxier wider fit, there’s an elegant swing to our new shape. It’s equally at home dressed up with skirts or paired with trusted denim – and can be French-tucked in, or simply just left to drape.
How the EASY compares to our other signature shapes
The OVERSIZE is knitted in a heavier 3gg and is longer and more oversized in its fit, whereas we’ve knitted the EASY in 5gg. The RELAXED is knitted in 7gg making it slightly lighter, but because the EASY does not have a rib hem to pull it in, the 5gg gives the EASY its beautiful shape and structure without being too heavy. The EASY is designed to be slightly shorter and boxier in the fit, with a beautiful stitch detail on the arm sleeve.
Scottish-spun wool. Made in England
The EASY is made from 100% Superfine Lamb's Wool, 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 Lamb's Wools. (Most average 21-24 microns).
The wool arrives in Scotland by boat once a year 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, there is very little, if any yarn wastage.
