We Think

One of the very many things we love about Frankie's Charl Knitwear is the tradition and stories behind each piece that makes them even more special: The Craske Gansey is named after “Big John” Craske who is fondly remembered as having a kind face. He was one of three brothers who owned two boats and saved enough money to build 3 cottages after a good season’s fishing. It is said that the chimneys on their cottages were built to resemble the four funnels of a liner. The Craske brothers also ran whelk coppers close to their homes and were successful fishermen and businessmen.

Details

CRASKE. Stormy Blue by Charl Knitwear. Drawing inspiration from the Norfolk fishermen’s Gansey jumpers of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, Craske is a seasonless chunky British wool knit. Crafted in Nottinghamshire from the highest quality 100% certified British wool; fleece to finished jumper in under 125 miles! This piece can be worn by men or women, a cosy go-to piece to pull on when the coastal breeze picks up or for quiet hours at home. It is knitted with a high turtle neck which can be folded down or “popped” up depending on the weather. The top half of the body is knitted in the original “hailstone” stitch taken directly from the original Ganseys on both the front and back body with a neat central shoulder seam and chunky rib trims. The body is generous and boxy, flatteringly shaped upwards towards the front. The sleeves are regular length with a ribbed cuff which can be pushed up to scrunch, or pulled down to cover the knuckles. Reverse knit panels run down each side seam – just like on the original Ganseys, this jumper is intentionally simple in pattern and form to complement the simplicity of the stitches. Knitted in 100% certified British wool and knitted in Nottinghamshire, England by a wonderful small scale knitting factory. Hand wash only when necessary* in cold or tepid water. Reshape whilst damp. Dry flat. Do not tumble dry. Gently steam (using the steam setting on your iron). *Most knitwear will refresh with a hang outside on a bright and breezy day.

Fit Guide

This generous yet modern fit jumper comes in two sizes: S/M fits women’s sizes 8-12 and M/L fits women’s size 12/14 or men’s size S/M. The boxy proportions mean this style is a modern interpretation of a classic Gansey with a curved hem which creates a flattering hemline. Model wears size S/M.
