  3. My wife and I are planning to spend two weeks in Brittany in August. I've factored in a trip to Guernsey just to buy the sweater!

  4. Guernsey Woollens is another fine maker of traditional Gansey sweaters. Their workshop is located at Rue des Marais on the interior of the island. Their website offers a variety of colors and neck types and they will produce sweaters with bespoke sizing upon request. Much of their business is export to Japan and Hollywood costume directors have placed orders with them for historical films. The character played by actor Colin Firth met his end wearing a Guernsey Woollens-made sweater in the motion picture 'Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy'.
