Drop sleeves, saddle shoulders, and a boxy shape make this sweater extremely wearable. Although heavily cabled, this jumper doesn’t feel bulky at all, and the front panel features a few eyelets to open the fabric. The Gretna Jumper has a beautiful drape and lustre thanks to the beautiful blend of British Wensleydale and Blue Faced Leicester. It will be a great project to keep you warm each season.
Throughout the damp spring days, cool summer nights, crisp autumn air, and snowy, grey winter, the Gretna Jumper is a perfect match.
