Traditional English fishermen’s ganseys were knit in tightly spun wool to help keep out the weather. This Scarf uses an aran weight yarn of pure Falkland Merino and combines some of the original motifs; marriage lines, cable and double moss - all of which trap air within the texture, helping keep the wearer warm and the weather at bay.
