Old Harry: Jumpers as they should be
Old Harry is named after the rock stack which stands at the end of Studland Bay in Poole. The rocks are the namesake of an infamous local pirate called Harry Paye who was famous for adventure and plunder on the high-seas.
The ethos of this brand is ‘We are big believers in doing one thing and doing it right’ and this British knitwear brand talks the talk with 100% high-quality cotton designed in Britain which includes the coordinates of Old Harry’s namesake featured on the nape! It’s nice to support British companies inspired by the sea… and surely we should be being an island?
These soft unisex jumpers come in six different sizes in cream, navy, black, grey and dark grey with the five-guage fisherman’s knit so they’re perfect if you want to gift it to your boyfriend and then reclaim back (it’s always better that way isn’t it!).
So, this isn’t a call to ditch those Christmas jumpers (they are still as hilarious as they’ve ever been) but maybe to gift one with longevity in mind. One that’ll get better with age and warm your loved one as they do that painful stagger across the beach from a brave but chilly swim or on one of those days you wrap up and brave the weather for a blustery cliff top walk. A good jumper is worth it’s weight in salt! (sea salt that is)…
For every jumper sold the brand donates £1 to the National Trust who help protect the Jurassic Coast where Old Harry sits: www.oldharry.com
