Whether you are looking for a classic crew neck or a vee neck, or something from our casual range, you will be spoilt for choice with our selection of men's merino wool sweaters.
The Benefits Of Merino Wool
Alan Paine merino wool is softer and finer than other fabrics making them more sensitive. This makes merino wool much softer and therefore doesn't itch or irritate the skin, whilst remaining super lightweight and breathable.
Despite being lightweight, merino wool works as a great insulating layer by trapping air in between the fibres to insulate you. However if it's warm merino wool can absorb moisture to evaporate in the air and will absorb odour molecules from sweat to keep you fresh.
There's a reason merino wool is known as the miracle fibre!
Features Of Alan Paine Merino Wool Sweaters

The craftmanship that goes into our merino wool sweaters demonstrates a hallmark of quality whilst this collection are all fully fashioned by being knitted to shape on the knitting machine, not cut & sewn.
Attention to detail is taken at every stage and each stitch is linked by hand to give the smoothest joint possible.
