Merchant Fox Sweater in Devonshire Cashmere




































Truly British Cashmere Sweater

I try not to make The Tweed Pig a site solely dedicated to the The Merchant Fox, but they make it difficult for me. How can the Bree Sweater be ignored? It was the result of a collaboration between The Merchant Fox, British merino wool and cashmere producers Bowmont (read their fascinating story here) and Quiggleys sweaters. I say 'was', as I'm not sure it is still available. It is certainly not ignorable, as I already mentioned a sentence or two ago.  

The sweater has great quality and timeless appeal, but the British provenance fair takes the breath away. The British-grown cashmere comes from Devon, the yarn is spun in Yorkshire and the sweater is knitted in the Scottish borders. As they say, 'born, bred and stitched in Britain'.

  1. Hello Tweed Pig
    Thanks for featuring our Bree Cashmere Rollneck. It is now only available on the Quiggleys site www.quiggleys.co.uk and is in the sale at for under £300. Grey Fox described it as having a 'cloud like softness' and I'm down to my last few so if anyone wants one they'd better be quick.
    Chris.
