New Arthur Beale Erebus Boat Neck Pullover
We were often asked if we could produce a boat neck version of the famous Roll Neck Beerenberg Pullover for those who find roll necks a bit itchy. After a lot of testing we are now proud to announce the Erebus Pullovers have arrived.
Made from the wool from the hardy Welsh Mountain Sheep which is neither bleached or dyed so it retains its wonderful woollen smell. The retained lanolin also repels water and the dark brown colour absorbs the warmth of the sun.
Each pullover is individually numbered and beautifully labelled in the welt. They have a small identifying Arthur Beale logo badge on the sleeve. We have designed this pullover so it can be worn either way round, effectively doubling its life!
PLEASE NOTE: All Erebus pullovers now come with the Arthur Beale logo badge on the sleeve. They no longer feature the red ensign.
Why an Arthur Beale Pullover?
Arthur Beale have a totally unique history. We have been in business for at least four hundred years. In those days England was abundant with fields of flax from which we made ropes and twines. Our Alpine Club Rope became world famous and was used on the early Everest attempts by Eric Shipton H.W.Bill Tilman and Tenzing Norgay. We also supplied Polar Explorers such as Sir Ernest Shackleton and Gino Watkins. Today we still supply Arctic Explorers with sailing equipment and clothing. Wool’s unique insulating properties make it the preferred choice of many Polar expeditions.
By buying from Arthur Beale you are helping a rare independent company continue to survive..
You won’t meet many people wearing the same pullover so why not say hello when you do. You may be navigating through Havengore Creek, anchored in a remote fjord in Svalbard or walking in the Brecon Beacons. You’ll have something in common, we are sure of that.
As each pullover is individually numbered we would love to see some pictures of your adventures. Please feel free to send us a photo with your pullover’s serial number and each year we will send a gift to the best one.
