Chunky and warm and straight to us from the the shores of the North Sea. These traditional cable knit jumpers are made with 100% Australian Merino Wool. The Wool is first shipped to Donegal in Ireland where it is spun and dyed to produce an authentic nep yarn, that is both rugged and soft.
The yarn then travels to an old Herring Warehouse on the North Sea up in the Scottish Highlands where it is knitted into jumpers. The factory has been going for 3 generations and started by a Herring fisherman who used to knit wool socks for his crew.
The relaxed jumpers are knitted with a chunky front cabled pattern and are knitted on the round, in one piece and so are seam free. High quality yarn and craftsmanship, meticulous attention to detail and an ethical approach to manufacturing make these pieces the very best examples of slow fashion.
And so finally the finished jumper comes back to Australia and to Berrima's Overflow for all our customers to enjoy for years and years.
