This hard wearing garment is produced from 100% British Wool and made in the UK using a 7 gauge stitch resulting in a tightly knitted garment which helps in making it weatherproof, whilst being comfortable to wear for work or leisure.
We are delighted to have supplied a quantity of this jumper to 20th Century Fox of Hollywood, for use in their film 'Call of The Wild' starring Harrison Ford and Dan Stevens, and we have also spotted the same jumper recently being worn in the Cornish made film 'Bait' !
Our Guernsey is unisex, and available from small to Extra Large. Please call us or email for advice if you are unsure of sizing. We are always happy to help
Length = Top centre of back collar to bottom of jumper
Chest = Measure from seam under arm to under arm. It can be helpful to measure a jumper that fits you well and compare the sizing.
Sleeve = Underarm to wrist. Sleeves have optional turn up cuff, so the measurement is of the material, without the cuff being turned up.
Just ask if you need help - and always remember - we can easily exchange for a different size - just don't remove the tags or wear the jumper so that you can return the item and we will immediately send out a replacement .
The History of Knitting in Cornwall:
Cornwall used to have a thriving knitting industry with each fishing port or even families having their own unique pattern for their 'Cornish Gansey Jumpers'. The Industry was lead by Cornish fisher wives. Like the Guernseys from the Channel Islands the Cornish 'Gansey' incorporated the pattern on both the back and front of the garment, meaning that if your elbows wore through you simply turned the jumper around - times were tough - and garments needed to have as long a life as possible. Another reason for individual patterns was sadly the need for identification when fisherman were lost at sea - your home port would be recognised from the pattern.
All Guernsey's come with a complimentary leaflet detailing their history - This is a great addition to your jumper if you are buying it as a gift and will give the recipient of your lovely Gansey jumper the information on its history
