An Oiled Wool Pullover from Arthur Beale - Made in Britain from British Wool

Photo by Salt Water New England

Arthur Beale exports these to Iceland, Antarctica, Sweden, Russia, and Canada.  If you were sailing to the Arctic circle (as they do), you would pack this.   

The Arthur Beale Beerenberg Pullover is made from undyed, oiled Black Welsh Mountain Wool.  It is so thick and heavy it feels like the wool from five sheep.   It is very comfortable to wear, and considering it is a beast of a garment, not unflattering on pretty much everyone.  
Superb!

Made in Britain of British wool.

  2. The Arthur Beale Beerenberg has become my favorite sweater when the weather turns cool. It's very cozy, and naturally as a turtleneck you don't need a shirt underneath (saves on laundry).

    The heirloom quality is flawless, and the price is reasonable. They also send you some extra wool yarn so in case it ever needs repair you're all set. Many compliments on this handsome garment.

    1. "you don't need a shirt underneath"

      A warm wool jumper is rendered pretty much useless with a cotton shirt underneath. Cotton is the absolute worst fabric as a base layer in cold weather. It has zero insulating properties and can be freezing cold if it gets wet or clammy. I always go with a tight fitting, superfine Merino crew neck under a heavy wool jumper. You can actually do away with a big coat when wearing a double layer of wool.

    2. Maybe so, but I really enjoy "useless warm wool jumpers with no cotton shirt underneath."

  6. Muffy,
    I can see a Canon SLR in your hands in the photo of you at water's edge and was wondering if you plan to migrate to Canon's Mirrorless camera bodies anytime soon? I am a Nikon user and was not impressed with their first generation Mirrorless camera bodies and instead, purchased a professional level Nikon D850 digital SLR. I also have a fairly large stable of Nikon F mount lenses.

    As you may know, SONY beat everyone to the table with mirrorless camera technology and Canon and Nikon have been playing catch-up (with Canon catching up to and in several cases surpassing SONY). I'd be interested to see what your equipment plans are, especially as you provide so many great photos with each SWNE release. Camera sales in general are way down as Smartphone cameras are now the go-to cameras for the average person.

  7. These oiled-wool sweaters from Arthur Beale are some of the highest-quality, rugged, and durable sweaters I have ever worn. "Heirloom Quality" as they say.
