Italian Merino Wool
Fordwich Rolled Collar Jumper In Ecru - Regular Fit
Introducing our Fordwich rolled collar sweater - the sort of no-nonsense classic sweater every man should have in his winter wardrobe. This season Alan Paine have evolved this iconic sweater to create so much more than a cosy knit.
Our regular fit sweater is crafted from a Teflon Merino performance yarn for a contemporary water-resistant sweater with increased stain resistance. Worry not though, the beneficial warming, comfortable properties of pure Merino wool still remain.

• 100% Fine Italian Merino Wool – 7 Gauge.
• Fully Fashioned - Knitted to shape on the knitting machine. We leave it to others to cut corners.
• Finished By Hand - Each stitch is linked by hand to give the smoothest join possible.
• Ribbed Cuffs & Hem – For that added snugness & fit.

A Teflon fabric protector is applied to the fine Italian spun Merino yarn coating each fibre with an invisible barrier. This treatment is used to create a water-resistant garment. It also increases stain resistance including the absorption of liquid substances, whether water or oil based. As a result, the original appearance, handle and colour of Teflon treated knitwear is longer-lasting.
Alan Paine is one of the great sweater makers in the world. But, I would like them to return to making their cashmere sleaveless sweaters. I have five, but they are in need of replacement. Please make them again!!!!! Your American cousins will be eternally grateful to you.
Fits perfectly and looks great
For me a full roll neck doesnt work, either my neck is too short or my double chin is growing. The mock roll neck is just what I need, I will be swanning around in my reefer jacket and new jumper affecting a rolling gait like a man of the sea. I have a few jumpers from you, a favorite being an orange coloured v neck in super geelong. And unlike fine knitwear from some other manufacturers there is no pilling - even after many years wear. Thanks again
