Traditional sailing Sweater which will keep you warm in any weather. The stripes were added to make it easier to spot a seaman in the case of a man overboard. Based on the classic Breton shirt which has 21 stripes every stripe would represent a sea battle won by Napoleone Bonaparte. It can be worn with a shirt or with a tee-shirt. The sleeves and collar is attached by hand. Beautiful finishing details on cuffs and hem. It is fitted a bit slim but due to the heavy knitting, the wool will give a bit after a few wears. Made in Germany from 100% responsibly sourced virgin wool. Natural Self-Cleaning and Water-Resistant Properties. Signature Stripe on Cuffs and Hem
Our Sweaters have a lot of stretch buy your normal size they will sit a bit slim on the body when you wear them first but will break in just like your favourite pair of denim.
Body = Neck to Hem Chest = Armpit to Armpit Arms = Shoulder to end of Cuff
Our wool has natural oils and is self cleaning. Just hang it outside in fresh air for a night. If you still want to machine wash it wash at 30 degrees wool cycle in a half full machine and use wool detergent.
