The Whitby Gansey

Available in store at Furbellow & Co, Whitby

Posted in Products

We are the only Whitby stockist of the Berties of Bay Whitby Gansey.

Derived from the original Whitby knitting pattern – If your beloved fisherman was lost at sea, their patterned gansey was used to identify them and return them home. It could also come in useful if they’d consumed too many shandies…

  • 100% pure British Oiled Wool
  • Machine knitted and stitched by hand
  • Hard wearing and warm
  • Traditional seamless design
  • Unisex – perfect for both lads and lasses

This garment is designed not to be washed due to the oiled content in the wool, which helps repel rainwater in light showers. If an emergency occurs spot clean the affected area by hand, then lay on flat surface to dry.

The Whitby Gansey is available in our store on 11 Sandgate in Whitby where you will also find a selection of Berties of Bay Beanies in a traditional Robin Hood’s Bay knitting pattern and Boat Neck Smocks.
