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.
Heavyweight tightly knitted wool sweater
5 gauge chunky roll neck jumper
100% Merino Wool Jumper
Made in England
This style fits true to size with a loose fit through the shoulders, arm, and body.
For 2022 we have slightly tweaked the design to make it a tiny bit more fitted and have made the ribbing at the waist smaller, down from 6" to 3"
Our sizing is a classic fit, so if you usually take a large then order large. If you want a slightly more over sized look then order a size larger than you would usually take.
Our measurements below are taken with the jumper lying flat. The chest is taken directly across the chest. The length is from the bottom of the collar to the seam. The shoulder measurement is taken from the seam to seam and the sleeve is taken from the shoulder seam to the end of the cuff with the cuff rolled up.
Please note that these jumpers are handmade so sizing may vary slightly.

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.
