Andersen-Andersen is a husband and wife team from Denmark who claim to make ‘the world’s best sailor sweater’. A bold statement? Probably, but when you get your hands on one of these beauties, you’re likely to agree. Knitted using ultra-heavy pure merino wool, these might have more in common with chainmail than knitwear — not only windproof, but probably harpoon-proof too.
Weighing in at around 1.5 kg, an Andersen-Anderson sweater may sound a bit unwieldy, but thanks to the great fit (a lot less restricting than some nautical-knits), they’re actually super-comfortable. Another definite plus-point is that they’re perfectly symmetrical, making it impossible to put one on back-to-front.
Andersen-Andersen themselves describe these as ‘a sailor sweater that can be inherited’. This might be true, but they’re so good we’d rather take them to the grave.
