The Guernsey knit cap is inspired by the sweaters worn by fishermen around the coasts of the UK which were called Ganseys or Guernseys. They feature combinations of stitch patterns using knit and purl stitches. Everyday objects inspired these stitch patterns that the fisherman would observe at seas, such as rope, netting and ladders.
The Guernsey knitters carefully considered how they could knit these sweaters into high-performing pieces of workwear. The results were extremely successful and have stood the test of time.
This 100% wool yarn has been knitted tightly to ensure that the fabric is not only warm but water and wind-resistant too.
