It's cold here in New England, and I needed cozy! Are you ready to bundle up (yourself, family, pooch and coffee cup) with a fisherman sweater? For more information and/or purchase, please click images.

Simply put, a fisherman's sweater is any sweater a fisherman would wear, from anywhere people knitted and fished, men at sea wore sweaters knit with their own hands and by those of their women at home. Traditional sweaters were knit in untreated lambs wool which is rich in lanolin, adding warmth and water-resistancy. And they're "ruggedly handsome", don't you think?

  1. There is just something so warm and inviting about a fisherman's sweater! I love the cream color and the beautiful cables and they look so darn warm! And I agree, any man who sports one is automatically ruggedly handsome!

  2. I love these fisherman sweaters. Megan surprised me by making wonderful pillows out of them for my home and shop. Now I can enjoy them without the itch - Sorry I just can't wear wool. All the best, Lori

  3. OMG!!!
    Is that third sweater down...hooded...a childs?
    If not...I don't care how much it's mine! Going right now to see if there is a link to it!!!
    I'm in love with everything about it!

  4. So sad!
    Heart is broken!
    Why do I always like children's clothes better thank grown up clothes?
    So sad that sweater can't be mine!

    Hi Maya! Glad I stopped by! :)
    I LOVE fisherman's sweaters...I had one that just fell apart last winter because I wore it out, lol! I used it as my winter coat for many years when I lived in Montreal! That little doggie coat is very cute, I'm sure my pugs would love that! Stay warm!! :)

  6. I love these sweaters, but I'll tell you what, if I could find a man who knits and fishes I would consider getting married again!

  7. Classic! Just warms my heart thinking about them. I love the puppy one - great find!

  8. My mom would call these Irish sweaters. Beautiful.

  9. ...these sweaters are ruggedly handsome...i love them! xo, mickey

  10. I could use a oversized snuggly fisherman's sweater right about now! Stay warm in New England. Spring is on the way!
