Crewneck jumper, hand-framed by knitters in the south-west of the British Isles, in a three-ply stitch of dust grey and putty-colour lambswool.

Sizing

The jumper fits true to size, but if you want a more narrow fit, it is best to go one size down.

The jumper is, in knitwear-speak, three-ply — i.e. there are three stitches to every inch. In everyday speak, it is "mid-weight". It is light enough to be worn over a shirt and under a jacket — especially since it has a slim fit — but thick and dense enough to feel substantial when the going gets cold.
It is “hand-framed” — i.e. made by a skilful individual on a small and old contraption, rather than a big automated bruiser. It is also “fully fashioned” — i.e. the body and arms are specifically shaped and engineered, and are knitted together by hand, so none of the seams of run-of-the-mill knitwear.
The body of the jumper is a plain-stitch of the three shades of yarn. The neck, hem, and cuffs, meanwhile, are a tight rib-stitch. The cuffs (left) are of the traditional “turn-back” variety — that is to say, they are twice as long as usual, and can be turned back on themselves to any given length.
The jumper is made from the softest and most luxurious lambswool around: from a breed of sheep that has a naturally soft, dense, and plush fleece, further softened by a natural water source running beside the factory.

Makers of

The garment is hand-framed by a knitwear maker founded 100 years ago. They work with small, hand-operated machines overseen by one person, rather than automated machines, making them one of the last makers still to do so in Britain. It is slow going, but the results always bear out the work put in.
