Black Sheep Irish Fisherman Jumper

A man's wardrobe is incomplete without our cable-knit crew neck jumper.


We took the naturally, undyed brownish-grey colour of black sheep wool and combined it with a bit of white wool to get this distinctive, heathered colour. This is a traditional cable-knit crewneck jumper that is a classic of Irish style and culture. Slip it over a collared shirt for a casual look and to take off the chill. Rib-knit finish at neck, cuffs, and hem. In brown/grey. 100% wool. Hand wash or dry clean. Ireland.
Sizes: S(34-36), M(38-40), L(42-44), XL(46-48), XXL(50-52).

    Fits very nicely. I'm 5'7"/ 170. This is a very warm and nicely made sweater. Initially it was snug around the neck but it loosened nicely. More brown than olive and it has that distinctive Irish knit. Hope you like the smell of the country and barns - until you hand rinse it in mild soap and water and air it out you will be reminded of the natural world. Better get one because you will like it

    this will keep you warm - 11/22/2015

    I bought one of these black wool sweaters about 25 years ago. For some reason it has gotten too small, and I bought this one (in a larger size) to replace it. This is what I usually put on in the fall when getting the leaves up and all.

    Very typical Orvis quality. Incredibly warm and comfortable. I'm 5'4" and 135 lbs, and the small fits perfectly. There's really some "substance" to the wool in this sweater. Thanks

    Super "GoTo' Sweater - 11/7/2015

    Last year I purchased one for myself and one for my husband! Our daughter saw it and wanted one so i purchased another one then her significant other said gee I really like that so I did get him one for his birthday in March..So we are the proud owners of four of these sweaters and love it. It is extra special because it Is the Natural color of the sheep.Sheep are either white of 'Natural' which can be very light brown to almost black when spun together you get a heathered/tweedy affect which is beautiful.

    I'd been looking for a heavy weight jumper for sometime as I've got a trip to New York in January next year. This jumper looked like the business so I bought one. Couldn't be happier excellent product excellent service thanks Orvis, just the job!

    Great Sweater! - 10/30/2015

    Really pleased that I got this sweater. Size (xxl) perfect for me. Have received several comments about stylish look and the color. Really impressed with the reinforcement in the neck. Don't see this in many garments; and after time and wear the neck stretches. Not with this one. The wool feels like cotton, doesn't scratch, and it's not noisy. Can't go wrong with this one. Buy one before they're all gone.
