A ‘guernsey’ is a knitted jumper that has been traditionally made in Guernsey since the early 1800s. It was originally worn by fishermen due to its resilience and has since become an important item of clothing that many people from all across the world are proud to own. Fishermen’s wives would knit jumpers for their families and the skill has been passed on through generations, so these garments hold a special place in the hearts of islanders.

This event is hosted by Guernsey Woollens and Le Tricoteur - visit their websites for more information and buy online.
