The early history of the sweater is a functional one, its primary function being to offer working men warmth and a degree of protection from the elements, without constricting them as they hauled on ropes and carried heavy loads. A Guernsey ribbed knit is a classic design that reflects heritage.
The Pickering Guernsey Ribbed Jumper is made from a wool blend fabric for extra strength and softness, and is available in Berry and Forest Green.
