Our Harbour Sweater, is a lightweight long-sleeved pullover, knitted from extra fine virgin merino. We took inspiration from the jerseys worn by dock workers in the Port of Hamburg around the early 20th century. They needed garments that were highly durable yet lightweight, so as not to overheat while loading and unloading ships.
To try and capture this original spirit, we’ve opted for a fine 8-gauge knit, which is perfect for wearing over a light layer, or directly against the skin. The sleeves and collar have been hand-stitched to the body and the precision of this craft is evident in each piece. There are quicker ways to make jumpers, but they don’t yield the same results.
Finally, we’ve left the edges raw as a further nod to workwear of old.
