Imagine climbing aboard a sailboat, unfurling the white sails, and heading out for a cool day on the bay in the Narragansett Gansey. This beautiful gansey was made for the sea as well as the shore. It uses traditional Aran wool that was made with vigorous wear in mind—the 100 percent British wool can be washed in a standard washing machine.
