Atlantic Shore's best seller - Our classic 100% British wool Jumper Unisex Guernsey style Jumper with a crew neck features the 'Polperro' pattern - which originated in the beautiful Cornish Fishing village of Polperro, This is a quality fisherman's sweater with a classic dropped shoulder design.
Cornwall had a thriving knitting community in years gone by - each fishing port had it's own particular pattern. Like The Guernsey from the Channel Islands, the jumpers knitted by the fisher wives incorporated the same pattern on the back and front, so that when the elbows wore through on one side, you could simply turn the jumper around and extend its life. Made in England, and made to last.
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 very comfortable to wear and is at a fraction of the cost of similar products from some of the more well known retailers. One of our most popular lines for both men and women. Looks equally good on both - and great teamed with jeans. Designed to last!
