Lambswool V-Neck Sweaters

Photos by Salt Water New England
Part of the uniform, Lambswool V-Neck Sweaters can add a bit of elegance and gravitas to an outfit.  

They can serve the role of smoothing out an otherwise unruly oxford.  For those who steer clear of Shetland sweaters for business calls, lambswool V-necks can be a useful alternative.   For women, they set off pearls nicely.  

Lambswool V-Neck Jumpers combine a Scandinavian sleekness with British soul.  They can be thrown on thoughtlessly, the highest praise.  And some prefer a more muted Navy or Grey, while others lean towards bright, dashing colors.   Sleeveless pullovers are a good option when wearing under a jacket to minimize bulk.  

While they should be on the thin side, some versions are too thin, cheaply made and unsubstantial.   


For Both Men and Women, Perfect with Tattersalls


  1. Beautiful sweaters Muffy. 😉 Navy and grey for me. I like them to show off my necklace or pearl drop earrings but I admit I don't wear my oxfords underneath, feels too bulky for me.

    1. I haven't worn an oxford shirt under my V-necks in ages ! These days I prefer them layered over either a crewneck tee or a lightweight turtleneck.

  2. Been wearing Shetland v-necks for years. Have around 15 of them in a range of colors/shades. No doubt they add elegance and refinement to almost any outfit. Should be a staple for every New Englander!

  3. Just superb! A timelss classic to be sure!

  4. I've worn V-necks forever both as a school uniform and well into my adult years :)

  5. I did not see any lambswool sweaters for women at this company, sadly. For me, men's sweaters are very ill-fitting. The options at Cordings include merino and, interestingly, possum.

  6. Can anyone tell me how the Cordings V-necks are sized? If between two sizes should one size up or down?

  7. Hawick Knitwear, Scotland. Perfect lambswool sweaters.

  8. I like the 2 ply cashmere sweaters from O’Connels
