The Cairngorm : 1920s Cashmere & Merino Ski Sweater : Brown

Heavy Duty Roll Neck

30% Cashmene 70% Merino Wool

Beautifully Flecked Wool from Italy

Knitted in Scotland

Exclusive to Aero

For our latest Winter pullover we've located the heaviest, thickest, most comfortable wool we could find, a beautifully flecked blend of 30% Cashmere and 70% Merino Wool from Italy and had it knitted in Scotland into a Roll Neck which weighs in at an impressive 1 ½ lbs. Consider the fact that a normal Cashmere Pullover weights around a third of that, the warmth factor of our incredible Cairngorm sweater is immense and yet it feels totally luxurious against the skin.

The popularity of, and access to, Winter Sports greatly increased ..... I almost said snowballed..... during the 1920s and 1930s, Alpine Skiing had unexpectedly become a huge success in the United States as well as in Europe and rapidly made the transition from an exotic leisure pursuit, indulged by the privileged few, to become a worldwide participant sport by the late 1930s

While clothing manufactures scrambled to produce specialist Skiwear to satisfy the surge in demand, most participants looked for the thickest, warmest sweater available, knitwear being unrestrictive yet warm. First choice was a heavy Roll Neck sweater, even competitive Skiers wore these, as can be seen in the period photograph of the US Olympic Ski Team from the 1920s.

This led us to consider what Aero would have made had we been around back then? We would have kept the design simple with comfort at a premium, a high roll neck to keep the wind out would be a must and we'd have sourced the very best and warmest wool available.........which is exactly what we've done in the creation of our new "Cairngorm" Ski sweater!

Also available in heavily flecked Dark Grey and/or Pale Grey
