A jumper with history

The traditional Guernsey sweater was originally a local fisherman’s working garment

With the diamond under the arm for ease of movement and extra strength

It is knitted with close stitches from tightly twisted wool and this gives it its ability to withstand all weathers, making it a fisherman’s favourite

Traditionally  knitted by the women of the fishing and farming families of the Islands, when many earned their living from the sea or the land.

The distinctive pattern was handed down from generation to generation and the knitting skills passed on from mother to daughter

The rib at the top of the sleeve is said to represent a sailing ship’s rope ladder in the rigging and the raised seam across the shoulder, a rope and the garter stitch panel, the waves breaking upon the beach
