Berties Of Bay Whitby Gansey – Petrol

The Whitby fisherman’s gansey jumper from Berties of Bay.

British made using 100% British oiled wool in Petrol Blue.

Based on the traditional Whitby knitting pattern worn by sailors and fishermen to keep them warm at sea. Each pattern was unique to the village that they came from, so when lost at sea or after drinking too many shandies, they could be identified and returned home to their loved ones.

  • Machine-knitted using traditional seamless construction.
  • Unisex fit – perfect for both lads and lasses.

Also available in Navy and Orange.

Please note: this Gansey pattern is knitted using both vertical and horizontal motifs, this means there is not much stretch in any direction. The sleeves are knitted slightly shorter than a regular jumper, as fishermen didn’t want hooks getting snagged in the cuffs, hauling them overboard. Underneath the armpits are gussets, which allow free movement when working. This Gansey provides more of a regular fit and tends to suit people of all shapes and sizes.

Care instructions: 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.

Absolutely wonderful customer services and excellent support. I wanted a specific gansey jumper and could not find it anywhere. They were fantastic, found the jumper for me and sent it to me express delivery yesterday afternoon. Royal Mail excelled and it arrived to our surprise this morning. It is exactly what was wanted and I can't thank you enough for all your help.
