The website says its donegal wool. My North Sea jumper is all new wool. They do look very similar but North Sea make in England and the Cabourn website says theirs is made in Scotland - I think there was a post by Eric a little while back which named Cabourn's makers, IIRC they use Andersen in Scotland.I really like this season's fair isle patterns.

That's the look I'm aiming for, and certainly how I picture all you guys, am I off base here?I wonder why he chose 2015, given that the war started in 1914?Anyway, I expect great things .. imho the British in WWI were the best turned-out infantry of all time, at least until the fighting started.
