The early history of the sweater is a functional one, its primary function being to offer working men warmth and a degree of protection from the elements, without constricting them as they hauled on ropes and carried heavy loads. A button neck sweater in a classic design reflects this heritage.
The Newsholme button neck jumper is made from a lambswool rich blend fabric for extra strength and softness, and is available in two colours; Blue Nep and Winter Stone Nep.
Knitwear: 5 gauge. Fully fashioned. Stand up collar. Three button neck fastening. Plain knit. Ribbed neck hem and cuffs. Machine washable.
