Welcome to The Cornish Gansey Company and a big shout our for Gansey memories please!

Posted on

Hello and welcome to the brand new home of The Cornish Gansey Company which is the baby and brain child of knitwear designer Tina Barrett. It's a project that has taken several years to properly research and develop and I am looking forward to adding and expanding the designs, history and Gansey memories.

One of the things I am most keen to develop is a listening project based around those of you who remember/own the original sweaters or have memory of those who knit them. I hope to add some audio interviews to the site in the near future and if anyone has anything I can use or add (you don't have to be based in Cornwall or have 'Cornish' gansey, it can be a memory or sweater from anywhere in the UK and Channel Islands) then please get in touch. I would be fascinated to hear your story.

Meanwhile, please stay and browse awhile. I hope you find inspiration, information and the tools with which to keep Gansey knitting alive and firmly in the knitty conciousness.

Happy Knitting

Tina B xx
