Seamen around the North Sea face harsh weather -- cold, wet and windy. In Norway, as in Britain and France, they depend on wool garments to keep warm. Devold produces the premier seaman's sweater in Norway, the traditional blue sweater of the North Sea, worn as an outer garment during moderate weather or under an oilskin during harsh conditions. It has an extremely tight knit with a fine worsted yarn, to provide good protection against wind and rain. It has a flat surface, including hemmed cuffs and waist, to counter snagging under work conditions, and hard use tends to polish the surface rather than abrade it. This zippered turtle neck is a great choice for outdoor use in changeable weather, for work requiring warmth without bulk, or just when you want a sweater with the classic qualities derived from a long work tradition. Back length of a size L [42] is about 29 inches, weight is about 1 lb., 14 oz.. Pure new wool. Hand washable. Designed in Norway, made in Lithuania by Devold.

  • Devold Sweaters
    The quality of Devold sweaters starts with selection of the wool and the yarn, and continues with the production methods used in fabricating the sweater. The parts of the sweater, front, back, sleeves and collar, are knitted to size. Ribbed cuffs and hems are knitted as part of the sleeves and the front and back. Knitting the parts to size as individual units gives maximum integrity to the knitting, and the designed shape of the sweater is maintained well in all sizes. The parts are sewn together, with the sewing taken into account in the design, giving less stretch or more stretch as needed for proper support of the sweater as a whole. Devold sweaters are built to last, with full attention to the details of material selection and production.
