A formidable, luxurious 6-ply superfine lambswool rib-stitch shawl collar cardigan that is equal parts thick and soft.
More coat than cardigan, it is made of a generous c. 1.2 kilograms of superfine lambswool from Todd & Duncan's prestigious Lamaine collection, making this piece sumptuously thick, sturdy and extremely warm whilst being soft to the touch, thanks to it being the world's softest lambswool.
It is densely knitted in rib-stitch for extra warmth.
A favourite of seafarers, the classic shawl collar cardigan is traditionally a chunky garment, known to withstand the most unforgiving of elements, and ours is no exception. Only we have chosen to use the world's softest lambswool so you can weather the winter chill whilst feeling supremely snug.
Highly versatile and designed to exude rakish charm, it is equally well suited over a shirt, t-shirt, or one of our crew neck jumpers for a doubling up of warmth.
Its unrivalled softness, durability and exceptional warmth will easily make this your most trusted companion for many winters to come.
- Italian made horn buttons
- a large rounded shawl collar that can be turned up to provide a handy buffer against the wind or flipped down for thick cushioning of the world's softest lambswool around the back of the neck
- 2 patch pockets of the same formidable rib-stitch superfine lambswool as the rest of the cardigan, for the keeping of change or, more likely, the stuffing of hands
- cuffs that are slightly longer than usual so they can be turned up if required to shorten the sleeve length
- knitted loop closure at the neck
- classic raglan shoulders
- This style fits true to size. We suggest taking your usual size. See size chart at the bottom of the page
- More roomy in the chest and body than our crew neck and v neck sweaters to allow for ease of movement and layering
- Slim through the arms
- Armhole is slightly higher than traditional shawl collar cardigans for an overall trimmer silhouette but not too tight to allow for ease of movement and layering
Model wears size 40/M. He measures: chest circumference 38.5" (97.8cm); height 6"2 (188cm).

We are confident in bringing you the world's finest knitwear because we only use the very best at every stage of manufacture:
Quality of fibre: 100% superfine lambswool of the highest quality, sourced from a special breed of South African sheep. Fibre diameter is c. 18.5 microns, making this the world's finest, softest lambswool (most lambswool averages 21 - 24 microns). Fibre length is c. 42mm - the longer staple length keeps the sweater in shape and avoids pilling.
Quality of yarn: 6-ply superfine lambswool 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". 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.

The shawl collar cardigan fits true to size. We suggest taking your usual size. The measurements of the garment are set out below. To ensure you have the correct size, you may wish to take a measuring tape to one of your existing jumpers with the best fit and compare measurements. Measurements are approximate, but any variance is minimal and will not impact overall fit given that knitwear has stretch.
Measurements are in cm:
