The Olympic Class - This sweater was developed using the images and archives from our sister company Miller - Rayner Est 1818 to reproduce a sweater reminiscent of what was worn by seamen from the White Star Line Olympic class of ocean liners, Olympic, Titanic and Britannic.
Miller –Rayner was the main supplier of uniforms to the White Star Line during this time and provided crew and officer uniforms for their ships including the ill- fated RMS Titanic.
We have chosen British long wool sheep predominately Blue Face Leicester for the yarn for this timeless crafted sweater.
This yarn is the closest British wool to merino and gives a luxurious soft hand feel. We also put a discreet Red ensign badge on the sleeve to distinguish this sweater as a salute to the proud traditions of the merchant navy which inspired it creation.
