Finisterre Bowmont Jumper

Often, what attracts me to an item of clothing is the story behind it and this is a pretty cool one. A merino wool jumper is always a handy winter companion. Unfortunately, Merino wool can’t be produced in the UK. For Finisterre to make an entirely British product they had to find sheep who could withstand the British weather whilst making wool which was on a par with Merino. The solution was the Bowmont sheep. When this project started there were only 28 of them in the whole world. Now, with the help of Finisterre, the Bowmont sheep are back and providing us with some lovely knitwear.
