Heavy Donegal Flecked Merino Wool Roll Neck Brown

***IF YOUR SIZE IS OUT OF STOCK, OUR NEXT DELIVERY IS DUE BY THE END OF OCTOBER***

 

We have been working on a new range of knitwear with a traditional Scottish Knitwear company, check out our superb new Fair Isles! As part of the design process we are doing a few Limited Edition short runs of a variety of designs, this being one such very limited edition knitted to CC41 standards.

We've based this flecked Donegal Merino Roll Neck on the traditional Scottish Fisherman's jersey, typically hand knitted alongside a roaring peat fire on those long Highland winters.

The sweater follows traditional Scottish pattern passed down from generation to generation, but we've slightly redesigned the neck for both comfort and warmth, the roll is knitted not to be restrictive, it has extra length to allow standing to protect the face when necessary the roll in knitted in a tube for extra strength.

The Merino sheep is originally a native of Southern Spain where the warm climate was ideal for the growth of its fine soft fleece. The breed has since then been improved over the centuries to gain its soft luxurious quality of wool but we wanted a heavier sweater so we've doubled up on the weight by using two strands of wool where one is usually used.

Our superb new sweater is knitted to replica a hand knitting style and would be hard to distinguish from a 1940s hand knitted original. The quality is superb, it is designed to the match the standards required to comply with the 1940s CC41 regulations and as such is fitted with a replica CC41 label for added authenticity.

Utility clothing had a special label to denote that it was an approved design and of a high quality. The CC41 stands for Controlled Commodity 1941. The striking design was created by Reginald Shipp and was used on all wartime utility clothing and also on furniture during WW2.!
