History of Fashion Knitwear
With origins dating back to the 3rd century in Egypt, knitwear has been an accessible, necessary and appropriate way of clothing communities in cooler regions since the records of time began. Requiring only basic knitting utensils, yarn and the skills to stitch, knitting can produce garments of all types from socks and stockings to sweaters, scarves and beanies.
Northern European countries were known to craft hardwearing, warm knitwear for mariners and fisherman during the 14th and 15th centuries. From then on, production of knitting machines began with new, finer techniques of lace knitting being introduced and knitting schools began popping up to equip the poor with skills to earn money. American fashion culture showcased knitwear as fashion on some leading figures in the media throughout the 1900’s cementing it’s place as a timeless, stylish clothing option.
Today we are able to celebrate the journey knitwear has made and appreciate the luxury of being able to easily produce luxurious quality clothing from wool found all over the globe. With the advancements in fashion textile technology, traditional knitwear can be manufactured with modern, aesthetic enhancements.
Sweaters Australia has been supplying quality Australian made knitwear to local and international customers for over four decades. Our broad range of woolen clothing for sale online, will delight men and women who are looking for fashionable and comfortable knitwear.
Knitwear that never goes out of style
One hundred years on and the V-Neck woollen jumper is still a winter favourite in men’s wardrobes. Exploding onto the fashion scene in 1921, when the Prince of Wales sported a V-neck Fair Isle jumper to a game of golf and quickly embraced by golfers, tennis players and eventually worn by men on various occasions throughout the world. Today, V-neck knits come in different quality yarn types to provide the right layer of stylish comfort. Perfect for pairing over a shirt and under a blazer, denim jacket, vest or overcoat. V-neck wool sweaters are a must-have item in every wardrobe, as they can be worn year on year with timeless fashion appeal. Sweaters Australia has neutral and bright colour options available in a spectrum of sizes to suit personal preferences.
Cable stitching primarily adds warmth and textured decoration to a knitwear garment. Originating off the coast of Ireland in the rugged landscape of the Aran Islands. Fisherman were known to sport cable knit sweaters as a means of keeping dry, warm and to fend off the forceful ocean winds. Over time, the cable designs that enhanced the knitted jumpers or cardigans evolved into various patterns, including the honeycomb cable design, plaited cables and more. British born Elizabeth Zimmermann was one of the most famous knitters of recent history and her take on the cable knit sweater was featured in a US magazine Vogue. This milestone launched the popularity of the traditional cable knit into mens, womens and even youth staple fashion around the world. Sweaters Australia is proud to offer quality Ansett Wool cable knit mens sweaters and cardigans in a range of sizes and colours to appeal to every man for the ultimate classic style.
In the 16th century, the Kashmiri craftsmen in northern India used the undercoat of the Capra Hircus or Pashmina Goat to spin warm, luxurious clothing, known today as cashmere. The beautiful quality of the fibres is light, breathable and incredibly warm. The cashmere goats are found at high altitude in the Himalayas of Tibet and have natural thermal properties which, when used in clothing provide unmatched comfort and warmth. By incorporating the tradition cashmere merino appeal into our modern range of mens jumpers, you will find a V-neck cashmere merino, cable cashmere merino, full zip or half zip cashmere merino sweater and more to complete your winter wardrobe.
Originally known as ‘The Guernsey’, fisherman off the Channel Islands wore fisherman rib knit jumpers for close fitting, hardy warmth at sea. Some say the different densely woven reversible stitch patterns were categorised to identify the local fisherman who may be lost in the oceans, should their bodies be found.

The experts at Sweaters Australia have put together a collection of fisherman rib knits for the most discerning style seekers, including pure wool rib knits with shoulder patches and crew neck fisherman rib knits in various colours.
