Trawlerman Crew Neck Sweater - Herdwick

Classic Crew Neck Design

Aero’s “Best of British Breeds” Herdwick Wool

100% Natural Undyed Triple Ply Organic Wool

Sheared and Spun in The UK

Knitted in Scotland

 

 

Exclusive to Aero: The Trawlerman

Recreated from our archives, the first ever design from Aero Knitwear back in 1987 and not made since 1992. Originally copied from an old Herring Fisherman’s sweater. We felt the design is long overdue to be re-introduced.

Knitted in “Herdwick "Best of British Breeds" Wool.

THE WOOL :

This unique sweater has been knitted here in the heart of Scotland using undyed, natural raw organic wool, ethically sourced, sheared and spun in the UK from a selection of unique native breeds.

The fibre has been processed using traditional time-honoured techniques with an emphasis on sustainability and a low environmental impact.

The absence of any dyeing process allows the natural colours, nuances and shades of each “Best of British” breeds to be reflected in the finished garment

THE HERDWICK

Herdwick are a native breed from the valley and fells of the Lake District. Descendants of the "Northern Pintail" group, they are thought to have been introduced to Britain over 5,000 years ago.

Selective breeding over the centuries has created a sheep ideally suited to the tough climate of an open fell. Breed characteristics include a heavy dense fleece and a "wild and feral" homing instinct referred to as "heafing" enabling Herdwicks to freely graze unfenced common fell ground.
