Sailor jumper to knit
The Hamine Jumper has all the attributes of a sailor jumper: a straight, slightly loose fit that falls to the hips with straight sleeves, a rounded neckline, a sufficiently thick wool that is warm and pleasant to touch, not forgetting the stripes. This wardrobe essential can be worn in winter as well as in summer over canvas trousers or jeans, or even jean shorts.

Keep your jumper for a long time by giving it the best care. Space out your washings, use little detergent, never use softener and avoid wearing your jumper several days in a row. Hand wash <30 degrees or machine wash if it has a wool balance program. Dry flat in a well-ventilated area. Iron, if necessary, under steam in the “wool” position. Store flat in an unconfined area and change places regularly to avoid creasing.
