We are delighted to have supplied a quantity of this jumper recently to the wardrobe department of 20th Century Fox in Hollywood for their new film 'Call of The Wild' Starring Harrison Ford and Dan Stevens, due for release in 2019.
This quality garment is produced from 100% British wool with a 7 gauge stitch, making a tight knit garment that helps in making it weatherproof. It is comfortable to wear and one of our most popular lines for both men and women. Looks equally good on both - and great teamed with jeans. Designed to last!
History of knitting in Cornwall:
Cornwall used to have a thriving knitting industry with each fishing port having its own distinct pattern used in the knitting. The industry was lead by Cornish fisher wives. Like the Guernsey's 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! The individual patterns of the gansey's were also helpful in returning fisherman lost at sea, to their home port.
I just wanted to let you know that the jumper arrived safely, and it is absolutely perfect, exactly what I wanted. The size is great, the quality is fantastic and I am totally thrilled.
I really appreciate all your help with my questions re sizing, and am looking forward to wearing it this winter (and for many more, I'm sure).
Thanks again for a really pleasant shopping experience and I'm sure I'll be back in the future.
