Jacob Brown Aran Jumper




Glencroft‘s classic Aran jumper in brown manufactured from 100% British wool.

Glencroft call this a ‘Jacob’ brown colour Aran jumper as the British wool yarn they use is the colour of the Jacob breed of sheep. A hardy sheep with distinctive brown, black and white spots. This is real natural locally sourced British wool, it will smell like wool should!

The design of Glencroft Aran wool jumpers are based on traditional geometric patterns hailing from the Aran islands (one ‘n’!) off the West Coast of Ireland. Not to be confused with the Isle of Arran in Scotland.

How to Shop More Sustainable

Buy less and buy well.

A British made wool jumper or a wool garment will cost you more. But it will last for decades and still look like new, if cared for correctly. This means less clothing purchases in the long run. If you buy a jumper every winter, consider buying one really good one every five years instead.

As a clothing business, Glencroft recognise the important role they have to play in supporting more sustainable fashion. From researched and transparent supply chains and use of natural, locally sourced materials to the packaging they use.
