The Blue LOOP Originals Harlingen Half Zip Sweater is authentic, warm and above all sustainable and recycled. The Harlingen features one of the most classic knitting patterns ever. The heritage of this sweater goes back to the 19th century; it is an original Fisherman knit with a lot of history. Dutch fishing villages used to have their own knitting patterns which have been passed on from one generation to another. Stella Ruhe has discovered over 60 patterns and together with her we created our iconic fishing sweater collection. This new version of the Harlingen contains recycled lambswool and is the softest fishing sweater to date.
The thick knit of the sweater is ideal for a morning walk in the spring, a bike ride in the fall, a cold winter day in front of the fireplace or a day out on the Dutch mudflats. The Harlingen is a sweater that should be outside, in the open air and really calls for adventure. Just like our ancestors who wore the sweater on the rough seas.
