The Guernsey is a huge part of Guernsey Heritage, having been knitted on the island since the early 1800s, it has since become famously know across the globe. Originally, fishermen’s wives would knit jumpers for the whole family and pass on their patterns to their children thus making it a very special item for the islanders who owns them. It still very much plays a part in the social fabric of islands life, and there are many islanders and families who still proudly wear theirs.
