HARLEY OF SCOTLAND - Classic Fit Shaggy Shetland Sweater - Vintage Orange
Brand: Harley of Scotland
Harley of Scotland is the best knitwear brand you've never heard of. That's because historically, they've mainly focused on manufacturing premium quality sweaters for other big designer names since they were founded in 1929. If you've ever seen a beautifully crafted, made-in-Scotland sweater walking down the runway, or on the shelves of a luxury boutique, chances are it was produced by Harley of Scotland. Well, we decided to go straight to the source and stock Harley's house line of timeless sweaters, which offers all of the luxury as-good-as-it-gets quality, at a much lower price point than if it had a designer label attached to it (and the associated mark-up).
This model will easily make you nostalgic for your Grandfather's beautiful old sweaters (that lasted decades), with its fuzzy "shaggy dog" texture, and its classic fit (roomy but not over-sized). We can't say enough good things about these sweaters!

About Harley of Scotland: Harley of Scotland was established in 1929 by Peter Harley to provide Fair Isle sweaters to local fishermen. While their wool still comes from the same hearty Scottish sheep that climb seaside cliffs and eat seaweed, they have updated their knitting practices to include a “seamless” technique, where each garment is knitted as one unit, not sewn together in pieces, making it sleeker and more durable.
