Round Neck Jumper Natural by Mati Ventrillon, Fair Isle Knitwear (Scotland)
Our Fair Isle Artisans collection celebrates a quintessentially British garment worn by early twentieth-century explorers, by 1920s royalty and by the style conscious for decades. Often described as 'masterpieces’, Fair Isle jumpers have been continuously knitted on Fair Isle for centuries. Each Fair Isle Artisans piece is carefully designed, and traditional shapes skilfully adapted, in this timeless-yet-contemporary collection. Made from 100% Shetland wool that’s renowned for its softness, light weight, double-layered warmth with stranded Fair Isle knitting, and breathability. Every garment is handcrafted, using vintage 1960s hand-frame machines to shape-knit its panels. Next, they’re hand finished to create seamless joins and invisible seams, hand washed with natural soap and flat dried. The final detail, recording the special bond between garment and artisan, is labelling with the knitter’s and hand finisher’s names and the completion date. All the motifs used in the collection are traditional Fair Isle motifs from early 20th century.
