Guernsey sweaters, also well known as fisherman's sweaters, have been around for over 400 years. They were tightly knitted so they offered excellent insulation as well as wind and water resistance. Designed and crafted to last, the sweaters had the same patterns on the front and back so if part of the sweater saw excessive wear, particularly on the elbows; it could simply be worn the other way round.
Today this hardwearing style, made from 100% British wool, and using traditional textured patterns, is still very much in demand and features the same patterns on the front and back; true to the original designs. Cut with practicality in mind it is comfortable to wear allowing for good ease of movement with side vents and finished with a smart crew neck.

Really like the style , price and quality
This is a great adaptation of the classic Guernsey, with more practical and comfortable neckline. Great fit, very warm in British wool and good value. Very pleased.
My late wife knitted me a guernsey sweater in 1982 using wool from Polperro, Cornwall to the Porthleven pattern. It finally gave out in 2020 after constant marine use. For obvious reasons no sweater will compare with my wife’s. However this guernsey from Nauticalia is a very close second. Well done in keeping the tradition alive.
Beautiful quality jumper and pattern
However on trying on it was itchy on the bare skin but this is due to the pureness of the wool
Very thick and heavy jumper. Great Quality, and generous sizing. Speedy delivery. Would purchase again.
