A little classic, a little cool, and very British
The FIELD CREW is a culmination of over a year's work, as we sought to bring all that you love about our RELAXED and combine it with this unique textured yarn.
Easy to wear, with just the right amount of slouch, the drop sleeve and length is very similar to our best-selling RELAXED, we've just tweaked the rib cuff (it’s a tad tighter) and neck to compliment the nature of this British yarn.
How does it feel?
British wool from the fells. Modern, cool and yet you’ll have a real feeling of history wearing this piece. It has a kick, a little feisty even, so isn’t the softest of our jumpers, but boy there’s something about this wool.
Layer something underneath and you’ll be all set. Feel this, then compare it to something that has synthetic fibres in it. You can’t get over how different, better, real this feels.
Sunday afternoons. In the garden. Natural. Right. Rooted. And that will always feel good.
125 miles from fibre to FIELD CREW
The FIELD CREW is a testimony to the success and sheer joy of working with a local product, local people and local purpose.
100% British, made within a radius of 145 miles from fibre to finished jumper.
More fibrous and edgy than our Scottish-spun wool, there’s something very special about wearing this brilliant textured British wool that has a real connection to British farmland.
With wool sourced exclusively from farms here in the UK - made from a blend of Bluefaced Leicester and Masham wool, the fibre heads to the mill in Laxtons in Yorkshire. It is here that this great British mill spins the wool into yarn - from fleece to fibre in just 50 miles.
The wool then travels by road to Nottinghamshire where it is knitted.
It is an honour to play a small part in helping to revive a real love for British wool, by creating a jumper that we believe you'll love for years to come.
