The design of the sweater is based on the submariner, a turtleneck sweater originally worn by British submarine fighters, which has become a permanent classic of men’s style.

Instead of traditional lambswool, we made it from the Andean gold: 100% Fine Special quality alpaca wool. This rare, high quality fibre feels comfortable against the skin, is warmer than regular lambswool and stays clean even in heavy use, being naturally stain and odour resistant. The knit is a sturdy but pleasantly flexible 4-ply rib that has been used in our Shawl Collar cardigan for many years.

Gifted as a wonderful present

I have become very allergic to standard wool, so my old wool submariner had to go. I gave it to a friend, so they replaced it with this as birthday gift. No more sneezing fits when I put on a jumper! We make damn good jumpers in the UK, and often for a very reasonable price. The traditional submariner being such an example. This shares all the good qualities of a traditional submariner. It's durable, with high quality seems and allows for good mobility. The raglan sleeves were a good idea. I wear this hiking and working outdoors in the winter and on the occasional climbing trip. It's holding up well. I have a lot of jumpers that are 20 plus years old and going strong, so despite the high initial cost my experience tells me that this will be a worthwhile investment. Buy well, buy once!

Turtleneck, navy – VESIKKO

I've worn the sweater once for a walk so far, so far it's warm here. Nothing, I have to say that it fits 100% (size M, I'm 178 cm tall, I weigh 88 kg). The sweater is made perfectly, it has nice seams. When worn outside in the cold and wet, it provides amazing thermal comfort. I've been looking for an Alpaca sweater for a long time, unfortunately I've had bad experiences with the seam quality of sweaters from Peru. But yours looks really sturdy. I'm really looking forward to wearing it again. Alpa Thanks!
