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.
