This is something that I have been searching for for years. I had an old submariner jumper many many moons ago which went missing and I have been searching ever since for one to replace it with.
After years of fruitless searching I was introduced to a knitwear manufacturer and he agreed to make one for me. This is the outcome and I am super excited about it.
Inspired by the handmade wool jumpers worn by seamen 100 years ago, this 100% merino wool jumper will allow you to keep warm and comfortable as well as being 'non itchy' due to the chunky merino wool. With its distinctive roll neck design, the Submariner is a timeless wardrobe essential. Perfectly at home with chinos and brown brogues as well as over jeans and trainers. It also sits beautifully under jackets and coats.

Benefits of chunky merino wool
Crease resistant fabric which holds its shape and colour
Reactive natural fibre which responds to your body temperature
Outstanding thermoregulating and wicking properties
Odour resistant material due to good bacteria being able to live on the wool
Only requires gentle hand washing or a gentle iron and soft steam in-between wears to maintain the fabric
Sustainable, carbon neutral, clothing choice
Why is our chunky merino wool hand wash only
High street machine washable merino wool is treated with a heat resistant plastic which cracks as you wash and tumble dry. Not only is the handle harder, but aggressive washing damages the merino (and the environment), which in turn means your jumper will pill more, lose its shape and begin to look worn very quickly. This significantly reduces the lifespan of the garment.
All true luxury jumpers are made using hand washable pure yarns. Our merino is luxuriously soft. The providence of our yarn makes our merino one of the best in world.
Invest in something special, that is made to last, and environmentally friendly.
