Berties of Bay

Clothing in Robin Hood's Bay

A beautiful home and clothing boutique in Robin Hood's Bay's old town that has shot to fame for its heritage gansey jumpers knitted to a traditional local design. These unisex roll-necks are 100% British oiled wool, engineered to withstand a drenching and bloody warm. Also expensive at £120 a pop; the sumptuous merino wool chunky scarfs and throws are comparatively a steal, though.

Each fishing village along the east coast would have once had its own unique pattern, so that if a seafaring soul was lost at sea they could easily be traced to their port of origin when washed ashore. The Berties of Bay pattern is the Robin Hood's Bay original.
