Nimrod Funnel Neck Sweater
- 30% cashmere, 70% lambswool
- Chunky rib stitching
- Warm and exceptionally durable
The Nimrod funnel-neck sweater is the perfect blend of rugged strength and luxurious comfort. Made with a hand-linked construction, raglan sleeves and chunky rib stitching, the sweater is not only stylish, but also extremely durable. Standard cashmere sweaters lack structure and so lose their shape quickly; the Nimrod is made with 70% lambswool, a strong fibre which brings structure and strength to the blended yarn, adding to its rugged nature and ensuring it will maintain its shape for years to come. The ultimate winter sweater, the Nimrod is perfect for those who prefer to wrap up in a chunky knit under a light shell during the colder months.
The distinctive chest pattern is inspired by the sweater worn by Ernest Shackleton on his 1907 Nimrod Expedition, when he set out to be the first man to reach the South Pole, the front hem carries the Shackleton nine-pointed star with ‘By Endurance we Conquer’ on the inside edge.
