These British Army pull-overs (or woolly pully from back in the day) were originally designed in WWII and issued to the British SAS and Bomber Command. The design was so popular that iterations are still being manufactured in modern times, such as the ones we have here. Also known as a 'Commando Sweater' in North America. Though British speaking countries of the world generally stick to the use of 'jumper' or 'jersey'.
Worn by many military personnel from WWII up until the present day. Truly a timeless and popular design. They are a comfortable rib knit sweater with a snug, yet stretchy fit for good freedom of movement. Made from moisture wicking and warm wool. Durable poly/cotton reinforcements protect the elbows, forearms and shoulder areas that will add years of good hard use to the jumper.

Very happy with my jersey, apart from one tiny very professional repair that you can hardly see its as good as a new jersey 10/10
I've practically lived in this jumper since I bought it. I spend most of my days shepherding goats in rain, hail or shine(or snow). A merino base layer plus this and a Driza vest or jacket is the way to go! Highly recommend.
