River Tweed Jersey
River Tweed Jersey is our contemporary take on a traditional fisherman’s jumper.

River Tweed is dependable, rugged, stylish and warm. Knit it for the man in your life and steal it to wear when you’re feeling the need for a warm hug. Alternatively get him to knit it himself and then steal it anyway!
