    Fishermen's sweaters site

    Here is a useful site for ordering traditional fishermen's sweaters from Cornwall. I have a couple of them and am thinking of ordering another as they are very warm and comfortable as well as very traditional woollies.

    And they are a remarkably low price for such quality. Good for anyone with outdoor interests.

    Very nice chap runs the company - he's the bearded man in the photos.

    Any comments on welcome.

    Looks good to me, good timing too - I rooted out my jumpers recently to discover moth caterpillars have been lunching on them over the summer. Gits!

    Especially since I've spent hours plodding round Manchester trying to find something similar to no avail.

    You seem a bit of a jumper enthusiast - if you can recommend some nice cardis too???

    EDIT: Order placed, nice site, ta.

    Hello Methuselah,
    Will reply in more detail shortly. Which colour did you order, as a matter of interest?

    They look very basic, not much style, I personally wouldn't turn my head if someone walked past me in the street wearing one, that really is the true test, for me that is

    Would like if they had turtlenecks. It's so hard to find a big, heavy, Hemingway-style fisherman's turtleneck.
    You call me "luddite" as if it's a bad thing...

    I agree that they don't have the allure of commando sweaters or Guernseys, for instance. However they are rugged, durable and traditional, which are three big 'plusses'.

    Geesie,
    I think they do turtlenecks if you ask.
    But for a good one, go to www.silvermans.co.uk and look for submariners sweater.

    That's good. They are very nice and practical as well as elegant in their own rustic way.

    I don't wear cardis much, although Guernsey Knitwear do some cardigan versions in a number of colours: www.guernseyknitwear.co.uk
    Yes, I am a bit of a jumper enthusiast (or sweater, for our friends across the Pond). I'll send you a PM.
