Information about Peregrine by J.G. Glover English Wool Sweater (For Men)
Closeouts. Leave it to the British to produce an exceptionally well-made wool sweater that's durable as well as stylish. From Peregrine by J.G. Glover, intricate honeycomb and plait cable stitches create a distinctive look that pairs well with turtlenecks and slacks.

What a surprise! Often, Aran-type wool sweaters are heavy, scratchy, coarse, and smell of lanolin. THIS sweater is so soft, it might be mistaken for a cashmere blend. It's a rather 'open' knit, so it might snag (we have dogs), but with a little care it should be fine. I bought the navy--classic, war...

There is something about English, Irish, and Scottish wool clothing that has always been both attractive, interesting, and desirable to me. Barbour jackets, Harris Tweed sport jackets, and Aran Island sweaters are among the best clothing in the world.
I was given one of these sweaters for a Christmas present in 2013, and liked it so much that I bought this and another for myself. It is, in my mind, a classic wool sweater--not marino wool or angora or any of the other, ostensibly more comfortable, sweater materials. It is well made, incredibly warm, and has that classic "wool sweater" texture, appearance, and feel.
Can't be beat. Would buy more, but there are only so many wool sweaters one can wear.
A good replacement for my former favorite, Pendleton, which has sold out, in my opinion, from their original "woolen mills" shirts and sweaters to popular tripe just has have so many other formerly premium brands that used to make find quality products.
These folks may do the same. For those of you who like and appreciate wool, this is an absolute "must have" product.

Handsome traditional look, soft, non-itch wool but loose weave makes this sweater inappropriate for below freezing temps, according to my husband. He is a classic dresser and really likes the sweater. True to size, ample length in sleeves.

This is my 3rd J Glover wool sweater in various styles and they're all exquisite; not your run to the mill/ off the rack sweater and it's quite apparent to most. Very comfortable wool as well as being thicker and warmer. The value is excellent through STP. Being British mfg, these sweaters aren't cheap even on clearance, but I'll always pay the extra cost for American or European craftsmanship versus the Chinese [...] sold by most of our quality conscious and "socially responsible" retailers.

This is the 2nd Peregrine sweater I have bought for my husband. The first a size M fit perfectly however this needed to be returned for a L. Too tight in the body and short in the sleeves. He is 6' 175lb. Also I ordered the grey color but it is more of an oatmeal so that was a little disappointing as the grey in the photo is gorgeous. Otherwise it is the usual top notch JP Glover product and he is very pleased with it.

I'm not sure of the gauge but the sweater is very light in weight and soft and snuggly to the touch...like that of a soft baby blanket...certainly not the weight of the fisherman's sweater from back in the day (lol...late 70's). The knit stitching is very loose which could be a good thing if you're looking for something that doesn't look brand new.

This sweater is made with medium-guage wool yarn - very good quality material...BUT it is a very loose knit, almost like crochet. It is a stretchy and open stitch , NOT a tight dense knit. It is warm as a layer but not heavy enough to block a chilly wind.
