The guernsey sweaters worn by the men who fish the Arctic waters north of Scotland are as distinctive as those of their neighbors to the southwest in Ireland's Aran Islands. Our Shetland wool pullover is adapted from classic guernsey patterns, rendered in a jacquard knit rather than textured cables and diamonds.


Available sizes: Medium, Large, XLarge

In the northern British Isles, thick wool pullovers known as guernseys kept fishermen warm and dry during long runs at sea. Villages came to be known for particular knitting patterns like this one, originally named for the Yorkshire port of Whitby. Whitby sailors also worked fishing seasons in the Scottish port of Peterhead, and the style is sometimes called Buchanhaven after Peterhead’s small local fishing village. This classic nautical sweater is knit in Peterhead, Scotland, using virgin wool raised and spun in Yorkshire.

In the early 1900s, enterprising women living on the Aran Islands took the sweaters they had knit for generations of fisherman kin and started marketing them around the world. Today the classic cable stitches of Aran knitters are a worldwide symbol of Irish culture. The wool blend features just enough cashmere to make this winter-white cardigan luxuriously soft to the touch.

The classic Scandinavian pattern of this blue and white cardigan is inspired by 19th-century Norwegian designs from the villages of Tromsø and Vardø. These were the final ports of call for the Fram expedition that took famed explorer Fridtjof Nansen from Norway across the largely uncharted Kara Sea toward the North Pole.

Ruggedly built for outdoor adventure but classic enough for evenings in town, this Shetland wool cardigan is an excellent choice for travel. Knit by a 135-year-old mill in Hawick, a town along the Teviot River in the southeastern Scottish Borders known for its knitwear. Along with angling in the local rivers, Hawick outdoor culture is marked by the annual Common Riding, where hundreds of riders on horseback celebrate a 16th-century victory over an English raiding party. This Shetland wool sweater is designed to withstand the brisk weather of the British Isles. Its natural water-resistance and moisture-wicking properties keep you warm and dry. Suede elbow patches and quilted suede on the chest help resist wear and tear from bags and camera straps. Suede trim on two front patch pockets.
