**NEW** Submariner Shetland Wool Rollneck (RN 1941 Pattern) CREAM

New from Aero, our recreation of the 1941 Pattern Submariner Sweater issued to Royal Navy crews during WW2.

This classic cream Roll Neck Sweater is knitted in Scotland exclusively for Aero in heavy duty Shetland Wool, especially selected to best replicate the wool used in the sweaters worn by hardy sailors in the harshest of conditions during the conflict.

The neck is designed for both comfort and warmth, the roll is knitted not to be restrictive and has extra length to allow to be worn fully raised to protect the face against the elements

To further replicate the original we've sewn a facsimile of an original War Department label onto the ribbing on the left hand side.  The use of external labels was experimented with on various items of issue knitwear for ease of size identification in Quartermaster's Stores. Like the originals, our label is sewn on with a large stitch making it easy to remove. While some seamen wore their sweaters with the label intact throughout their term of duty, others removed the label upon issue. The large stitch we've used gives the new owner the same option.
