Deepwater Crew-neck Gansey

Regular price £130.00
Unit price  per 
Tax included.

An exclusive design produced just for us by a traditional maker in the Channel Islands, we think this is the definitive fisherman's garment.

And now it's even better. For this 2nd edition we've improved our most popular sweater with a little bit more body and sleeve length... not too much! Just enough.

This is a traditional Gansey but with the more contemporary crew-neck style. Our Gansey is in traditional deep navy with our own signature orange detailing, and our own shoulder patterning.

Knitted from 100% Pure British Wool, spun and oiled to the particular specifications required to achieve the unique feel and performance of the traditional Guernsey/Gansey garment.

The factory combines traditional techniques and skills with historic textured patterns and style details, as well as modern equipment for a consistently high quality product. Sewn together with traditional Channel Island skills.

Only available from Blackshore Coastal Clothing!

Sizing indicates circumference of the sweater. For example a size 42" is 21" across from armpit to armpit (42" total circumference).

So if you have a 40" chest the size 40" will be pretty snug on you! 42" will generally be right for you... or if you want a roomier fit go up to next size.


    MEASURING FOR THE BEST FIT:
    • Measure the person while standing with their arm resting by their side.
    • Measure all the way around the chest, with no finger gap behind the tape measure. If you have an even number add 4", and if it's an odd number add 3" (e.g. a 38 inch chest measurement requires a 42" Gansey). This number is your Gansey size.To check the length, measure from the middle of the shoulder to the point you want the garment to finish (normally the middle of the buttock).
    • To check the sleeve, measure from the middle of the neck, over the shoulder tip and down to the elbow - and then on to the point you want the cuff to finish at your wrist or hand.
    • Note: our Gansey is made from completely natural fibres and as such there can be a slight variation in size (plus or minus 0.5 of an inch or 1.5 cms)

    Excellent Quality

    My husband bought his gansey first - I was so jealous that he bought me one for my birthday. Excellent quality. It's a very heavy gansey - more so than the Gurnseys that Blackshore sell. This is what I/we wanted as we sail throughout the year we need a good warm jumper to keep out the cold. I can't wait for the winter to come so that I can start to wear it. My only criticism, is that it would be nice to have a ladies pattern. This is very much a man's cut - and for a man with rather large arms (I suppose fishermen do have bigger biceps than me!). I would also love it if there were different colours... but none of that stops me reveling in the quality of the gansey.

    Deepwater Crew-neck Gansey

    I have just received my new Gansey and it is superb.
    The quality of the pattern and knit are fantastic with the orange neck and sleeve detail lifting it above a standard Guernsey sweater.
    I chose a 44" chest although I am a 42" for most brands and the fit is just right.
    Good job that the cold weather has returned so i can go and try it out!
    Thanks to Oscar and the Blackshore Team

    Beautifully made

    It jumper is beautifully made and extremely warm. It is smart and looks like it will keep its shape and last a long time.
    The drawback is it’s sizing.
    I ordered a 44 as I followed the advice on Blackshore’s website. This is still too small even though my chest measurement is 40.
    I would return it but as it was a gift from my wife we do not have the packaging.
    Also the sweater took a long time to arrive due to Blackshores forgetting to post it.
    I cannot understand why the sizing is not changed to that a 40 is a normal 40 not a 36. It would save a lot of explanations, instructions etc.
    Great sweater but please sort out the sizes.
