All new Traditional Fisherman’s Gansey Cardigan, knitted in Robin Hood’s Bay pattern using 100% British oiled wool.


Derived from the traditional Robin Hood’s Bay knitting pattern, sailors and fishermen wore Ganseys to keep them warm. The pattern was unique to the village that they came from, so when lost at sea or after drinking too many shandies, they could be identified and returned home to their loved ones.


• British made using 100% British oiled wool

• Machine-knitted using traditional seamless construction for the main body

• Hard wearing - bloody warm

• Unisex fit - perfect for both lads and lasses


Featuring a sailor shawl collar this new addition has large side pockets to store your beanie when indoors. Gussets have been knitted under the armpits providing more movement when hard at work. This fab addition to the range is just as hard wearing as the jumpers and designed to last you a lifetime whether out at sea or on dry land.


This Gansey Cardigan provides a larger looser fit and suits most body shapes as the pattern consists of only vertical motifs, so like a rib it follows the body shape contours with lots of give / stretch across the width. If you have one of our Ganseys already then we recommend going down a size unless you want it larger and looser.
