The robust Isle of Skye Boatmen off the western coast of Scotland required rugged woolen sweaters for their adventures and arduous seafaring work.  Out of necessity and ingenuity they devised a method of boiling their already world-renowned Scottish wool in an effort to make their sweaters not only resistant to the bracing Scottish climate, but also a softer and impervious wool that today remains highly sought after and difficult to produce.
Our Skye Boatman Boil® sweaters embody the spirit of those Scottish adventurers whose motto PER MARE PER TERAS (BY SEA OR BY LAND) will provide you with many years of lasting durability in various weather conditions as well as comfortable features found nowhere else.
