Welcome to the home of The Cornish Gansey Company, a website dedicated to educating, recording and promoting the traditional Gansey Sweater.
There is knitting too. Lots of knitting in fact, and you can purchase kits, needles and yarn from our online shop to create your own Gansey in the same tradition as our knitty ancestors.
Please stay awhile and browse through our Tradition and History pages and if you have any Gansey memories of your own, we would love to hear them.
What our customers are saying about us:
'Just to let you know that I received the 'knitfrock'/gansey yesterday.....it's beautiful, fits just as it should, better than Cinderella's glass slipper...perfect, fine and tight stitching' CT from Denmark
'I am delighted to tell you that I did place my order for two lovely kits last Wednesday and received them both yesterday - only a week delivery time to the U.S. Thank you!'
'the yarn is lovely to knit with and the pattern/instructions excellent.' Angela from theUK
