This handmade fisherman jumper with a pattern from the fishing village Wierum is comfortable and warm. The jumper is an artisan product from pure wool and is historically correct. The fisherman Jumper is available in different colors and with horizontal patterns.
The pattern of this fisherman sweater originates from a picture of Jacob Akkerman. Jacob Akkerman (1866-1921) was a descendant from an old fishing family from Wierum in Friesland. Jacob was photographed while he was on a fishing trip. The photo currently hangs in the home of Jacob’s grandson.
Renske - an experienced knitter and the granddaughter of Jacob- knitted an exact copy of the jumper for 't Fiskershúske museum.
