Traditional Navy Guernsey
The pieces of each Traditional Guernsey are machine knitted on 6 gauge flat bed knitting machines using English Worsted Wool. These pieces then go out to our Hand Knitters who work in their own homes, these ladies knit the raised shoulder seam which runs across the top of the shoulders and joins the two body pieces together, they then knit the neck around and up finishing up with a cast off stitch,effectively making the 2 body pieces and the neck one knitted piece of fabric with no seam.
Choosing your size
For Traditional Guernsey's and for Zip Jackets we recommend chest size plus 2" for Ladies and chest size plus 4" for men
Washing your Guernsey
A Le Tricoteur Guernsey will last for years if looked after,we recommend Hand Washing and drying flat or you can have it Dry Cleaned.We regularly get them back over 20 years old with the neck just beginning to wear, we just run it down a few rows and reknit it thus giving many more years of life.
