The Real McCoy’s pullover hoodies are knit to a low yield at a slow pace using vintage hanging loopwheelers. These machines operate at a glacial speed and use little more than the pull of gravity to move the fabric along. In fact, loopwheeling is such an involved process that it’s closer to hand knitting than it is to industrial production.
Each hanging loopwheeler is handled by an expert well-versed in the machine’s quirks and idiosyncrasies. It’s a labour of love, but the result is a tough, soft, and airy fabric – full of unique character and exuding an undeniably premium feel. The fabric is also yarn dyed, so expect these hoodies to fade and age over their many years of wear. Finished with pullstrings at the hood and ribbing at the cuffs and hem.
