  • Fully fashioned
  • Knitted in Romania

Designer's Notes

Tell us a bit about the Westray:

We’ve taken something incredibly British and combined it with our obsession for innovation. Traditionally worn by the men of the wild Atlantic, this is our take on the fisherman style cable jumper. Knitted using premium textured tweed yarn, sourced from Donegal, Ireland, the natural lanolin of the yarn gives a real sheep experience through both touch and smell and even gives water repellency benefits. It’s a piece of knitwear that represents history, innovation, and quality.

Where did the name come from?

The jumper is named after Westray, one of the Orkney Islands, off Scotland, a cold water surf spot.

As you designed it where did you see people wearing it?

A true classic, we saw it being worn outdoors by cold water surfers, for travelling, camping, hanging out, we see it being handed down over the years, a timeless keepsake

In your eyes what’s unique about the Westray?

The yarn, this is the real story to me, not just any old wool or wool blend, but the real deal, Irish Donegal, unbleached, real life sheep experience! Along with traditional fully fashioned cabling and trims.
