We're proud to say that from farm to factory our beautiful Gansey sweater is produced entirely in the Britain. A take on the traditional fisherman’s Gansey sweater, we’ve been inspired by stitch patterns used historically in Cornish fishing villages. Details include a boxy, drop shoulder body shape with T sleeves and a ribbed and cast off rolled collar. Panelled stitch patterns run across the top half of the jumper, plus it is ‘knitted in the round’, meaning it is seamless, just as the traditional fisherman’s jumpers were made. Made using undyed wool, the natural fibres keep you warm in cold weather, but are breathable too.

Laxtons, a spinner based in Yorkshire, create fully traceable British wool. They are members of the British Wool Association and the Soil Association, have a Woolmark and are Campaign for Wool supporters.
This yarn is a blend of premium British fleeces finished within a 50 mile radius of the spinner. We use the wool in a factory in the Leicester area meaning the entire process, from fleece to finished jumper, is kept in the UK. End to end British wool.
