The days are getting shorter, and the wind’s getting that extra chilly bite that’s so easily forgotten during warmer months. Let’s be honest, sometimes we’d even get out of popping to the shops if we could, as staying toasty indoors becomes so much more appealing! To make your winter more festive, warm, and beautiful, we at Allweathers have picked out some of Barbour’s best knitwear to keep you as cosy as can be during the cold season.  

It’s hard to go wrong with classic black and the Barbour Men's Case Fairisle Crew Neck Jumper is hands-down our favourite men’s design this season. We hope to see at least one of these charming Fair Isle-patterned lambswool knits at a Christmas party this winter! With contrasting collar, hem, and cuff ribbing, this quality Barbour knit is both flattering and as ergonomic as can be. It matches effortlessly with jeans for an indoor do, a quiet and snuggly night in, or even with a thick padded jacket for heading out on the town.

For those who love simple grey, adore the soft touch of lambswool, but prefer the added warmth of a funnel-neck design, the Barbour Men's Holden Half Zip Jumper is another of our special picks. It’s difficult to beat when choosing a middle layer, with a zip-up neck that keeps in your body’s warmth. Smart ribbed side panels and contrast elbow patches ensure a top-quality fit and authentic Barbour feel that make it the perfect Christmas present. Just in case you can’t decide between this and the Fair Isle Crew Neck, why not get both and enjoy Allweathers’ seasonal 25% discount?

Barbour is known for its Cable Crew patterns, a classic twist that make any knit stand out from the crowd. On the other end of the spectrum, the Barbour Men's Essential Cable Crew Sweater comes in vibrant blue, a durable and toasty slim-fitting men’s sweater that works beautifully with a polo shirt. The Barbour side flag finishes off this warm winter layer, which can just as easily be worn alone during the crisp spring months.

We couldn’t not choose the Barbour Men's Cotton Half Zip Jumper for our top four Barbour men’s knits. Every wardrobe this far north of the Equator needs good old warm layers, and the Half Zip jumper comes in Navy for maximum versatility. Worn with a shirt and scarf, this 100% cotton winter layer is the ideal addition to any winter outfit. Breathable, with ribbed cuff, collar, and hems, it also features a handsome tartan placket inlay that makes it essentially Barbour. There’s nothing more elegant than cashmere, and this is combined with luxurious merino in the Barbour Women's Roseberry Knit. The iconic Fair Isle design is seamlessly completed by a button-down layer shirt or one of the Comfort Collection jackets. Eye-catching yet versatile enough to pair comfortably with denim, the

Roseberry Knit is timelessly British and will keep you warm through the colder months.When it comes to bright, cheerful patterns, the Barbour Women's Rhossili Knit is another stunning option for brightening up moods as the days get shorter. Designed to feel soft and gentle as a lightweight mid-layer, the Barbour Women's Rhossili Knit is a must-have feature piece for your winter wardrobe. Lambswool-rich yarn in navy, red, and lighter blues are easily paired with jeans for a classic Barbour look, while the boat neck is easy and comfortable to wear with collared shirts and scarves alike. Though it’s perfect as an indoor knit by itself, or outdoors when paired with a quilted jacket, you may even find that the gorgeous texture of the Rhossili knit is its most endearing feature.

If chunky, textured designs make you feel that extra snuggle factor, the Barbour Women's Seahouse Knit is a gorgeous winter staple. A gently scooped neckline gives a relaxed fit and flattering finish while making sure you can layer up with collared shirts for maximum warmth. A soft, breathable wool and cotton blend has been used in this knit for a  gentle and comfortable finish. Our specia1 favourite this winter season, the Women’s Barbour Dunnit Cape is softness personified. Made from a blend of soft, rich alpaca and classic wool for warmth, the only thing nicer than touching this cape is being snuggled up inside it! Smooth on the skin, tassel-trimmed for casual appeal, and embossed in Barbour’s signature tartan, the Dunnit cape is the ideal way to stay warm. Even better, it works through all seasons, keeping you warm through milder autumn and spring weather when the worst of winter has passed. It’s just as easily worn as a feature piece with a work outfit, or snuggled up on the sofa at home!
