Colour: Neutral

Details:

The limited edition Centenary Collection has been released to mark the 100 year anniversary of Shackleton's death in 1922. The Hero is Shackleton’s most successful knitwear product and has received consistent high praise since its launch four years ago. It seems to quickly become the favourite sweater of every single man who has one because it does everything a good sweater should. It’s super-warm, it’s soft and comfortable to wear and it looks terrific - the right combination of smart and rugged. The Centenary edition is made in Italy in new and classic colours and carries the signature ‘E. Shackleton’ on the hem label. The design of this classic roll neck is inspired by the iconic basketweave sweater worn by Ernest Shackleton throughout the Endurance expedition of 1914-17. It is crafted in Italy from the softest and most sought-after lambswool on earth, Geelong. This 100% natural fibre is produced from a unique breed of Australian sheep and has a softness and warmth that rivals that of cashmere. Even men who would not normally choose a roll-neck have found this yarn to be a revelation- not the least bit scratchy or itchy to the neck. The Centenary Hero is non-allergenic, highly breathable, lightweight and carded during production to trap air for increased insulation. Furthermore the natural fibres of Geelong are incredibly strong given its silky touch - the Hero sweater is remarkably durable and will hold its shape for years to come.

About the brand

Shackleton

If you're trying to figure out where you recognise the name ‘Shackleton’ from, the brand’s Arctic-worthy coats should provide a clue. Yes, it was Ernest Shackleton, the great polar explorer, who inspired two men to create a brand in his honour. And while its apparel may be expedition-grade, you don't have to trek the South Pole to feel the benefits – a blustery walk in your local park should do just fine.

Sustainability

Shackleton upholds a number of sustainability standards, from using recycled cashmere to its long-term partnership with the NGO Blue Marine Foundation. The latter works to protect four million square kilometres of Antarctic waters.
