Features

Our cashmere rollneck is inspired by the rollneck sweaters perennially sported by actors from the French New Wave cinema movement, counting the likes of Jean-Paul Belmondo and Jacques Charrier among its champions. Stylish, avant-garde, yet relaxed and elegant, the Belmondo rollneck is perfect for wearing on its own or for layering under tailoring.

Made in Scotland, using the world’s finest 100% 2-ply cashmere yarn spun by revered Scottish yarn mill Todd & Duncan, our cashmere rollneck is made in the great tradition of Scottish heirloom knitwear craftsmanship which means that the cashmere yarn is knitted densely using an abundance of the luxurious material, giving it its stiff and robust handle, the idea being that this will allow it to soften naturally over time with wear, so that the garment can last generations.

Cashmere is an extraordinary fibre, and we use the very highest grade of it so that the “backbone” of the garment (which is its raw materials) is the crème de la crème of its kind, setting a solid foundation for the rest of the construction of the garment, ensuring its longevity. Cashmere is extraordinary in that it is breathable, soft and feels exceptionally light, yet it is comparable to the warmth of the chunkiest lambswool sweater. It is this wondrous combination that has earned cashmere its name "the fibre of kings". 

Fit

  • This style runs small. We recommend that you take one size up from your usual size
  • Please see size guide at the bottom of the page
  • Slim modern fit but has a small amount of natural stretch and moulds to body over time
  • Body of sweater tapers slightly from the chest down to the hem to give a more fitted look by minimising excess fabric often found around the waist of sweaters
  • Smaller armhole compared to traditional "baggy" sweaters, without being overly restrictive
  • Tall rollcollar for an elegant look

Unrivalled Quality 

We are confident in bringing you the world's finest cashmere knitwear because we only use the very best at every stage of manufacture:

Quality of fibre: 100% cashmere of the highest quality sourced from inner Mongolia. Fibre diameter is c. 15.5 microns and length is c. 38mm, making the fibre the world's finest and longest, which means the softest and most durable

Quality of yarn: 2-ply cashmere yarn produced by spinners Todd & Duncan at their Loch Leven Mill in Kinross, Scotland, industry heavyweights who have been spinning yarn for 150 years - world renowned for their consistently high quality and strong yarns. 

Quality of knit
: knitted, hand-finished and washed by fourth generation heritage knitwear specialists in Hawick, the Scottish Borders, a region whose expertise in the trade is without compare. Garments are knitted tightly to minimise gaps and to ensure longevity.

Quality of finish: there is a high degree of hand-finishing. The sweater is "fully-fashioned", as signified by the faint-dotted lines along the sleeve-head of the jumper. This makes the garment more well fitted, much like a bespoke suit. Individual pieces of the sweater are “hand-linked” - a meticulous process by which each tiny knit-loop at the end of each piece of the sweater is linked together by hand, ensuring the seams are the straightest and strongest. 

Quality of wash: the finished product is carefully washed in pure Scottish waters with the precise balance of minerals, so that the garment is given its famous soft handle without compromising the integrity of the fibres. Scottish knitwear may feel a little stiff to begin with but will soften naturally with age.
