Red Ensign Badge of Sleeve
100% British Wool
Navy or Ecru
The Olympic Class – This sweater was developed using the images and archives from Miller – Rayner Est 1818 to reproduce a sweater reminiscent of what was worn by seamen from the White Star Line Olympic class of ocean liners, Olympic, Titanic and Britannic.
We have chosen British long wool sheep predominately Blue Face Leicester for the yarn for this timeless crafted sweater.
This yarn is the closest British wool to merino and gives a luxurious soft hand feel. We also put a discreet Red ensign badge on the sleeve to distinguish this sweater as a salute to the proud traditions of the merchant navy which inspired it creation.
