Another perfect replica of a WW2 era Fair Isle knitted exclusively for Aero. The pattern for this "V" Neck is copied from a 1940's Cardigan from our extensive archives.
Since our fabulous Fair Isle hand knitters have we've been fortunate enough to find a commercial knitter in Scotland capable of reproducing a machine knit Fair Isle using original hand knitting patterns from the 1940s that looks look "hand knitted". These are as good as it gets, the wool, the patterns, the colours and, most importantly, the fit are all pure 1940s

There are few more poignant reminders of the knitwear popular during 1940s and 1950s than an original Fair Isle pullover, the bright colours lifted the spirits during the darkest days of WW2. In a bid to overcome the clothing rations, people were also encouraged to knit and these brightly coloured Fair Isle sweaters became a symbol of hope in a rather "black & white" World.
Often the womenfolk whiled away the tedious evenings of the 'black-out' gathered around a peat fire listening to the radio and knitting Fair Isle and other sweaters.
Please check our full range of WW2 era clothing, each piece is carefully replicated from traditional patterns typical of those used during wartime. These items include CC41 Shirtsas can be seen in some of the Fair Isle photos, Boots , Caps and CC41 trousers.
