“Tsuriami-ki” refers to traditional hanging loopwheel machines. There are relatively few of these machines still in operation, and the very best of them are to be found in Japan’s Wakayama prefecture. Their slow, gravity-fed knitting process creates fabrics of exceptional quality and beauty - fabrics of a texture and charm all-but impossible to achieve via modern industrial methods.
The Real McCoy’s lean on this time-honoured method to create the 10oz cotton fabric used to make their Crewneck Sweaters. It’s tough and textured on the outside with a soft and insulating loopback knit on the inside. The fabric is yarn dyed navy, so expect some subtle fading and colour variance as the sweaters slowly age. Finished with classic, V-gusset accents at the collar and ribbing at the cuff and hem.
