This is a traditional Cornish Guernsey, which has a ribbed bottom. The pattern comes from Polpero in Cornwall and represents waves breaking on the beach.

I have often thought that the reason our beautiful traditional garments are no longer made has more to do with the traditional colours they are made in so I use non-traditional colours. Hand knitting is by nature slow and time consuming and requires patience to make a really good product.

A Guernsey is knitted in one piece so there are no seams to rub when the garment is wet. Guernseys were originally made by fisher folk because when wet they still keep you warm, important when out to sea. They are knitted on very small needles to make the stitches tight and wind resistant.

If you participate in water sports or just love the outdoors a Guernsey is guaranteed to keep you warm in all weathers. A real must for those avid outdoors men and women.

This item is unique so once it is gone there won't be another like it.
