TYPE 780 OPEN NECK PULLOVER
The Open Neck Pullover is finished clean at the neck with no rib or change of tension.This shows the angled panel construction where lines of knitting finish and are normally closed off with a linked collar. The cuffs, neck, and hem are finished clean with no rib or change of tension.
The lambswool yarn is knitted ‘greasy’ (dyed but otherwise unfinished) and then cold felted. Each piece is knitted around double the finished size, and shrinks during felting.The practice of felting wool fibre in cold water is older than weaving, spinning, or knitting, and knitwear has long been felted to increase its density and help protect against the wind. Unlike hot water felting, which matts the fibres together fully and creates a stiff fabric, cold felted knitting remains light and stretchy while being beautifully thick and soft.
