Kersten Fleece – Blackpool Sea



I love a nice fleece me… but that is very much a recent development. Up until the last few months I always thought that they were the kind of thing old ladies wore to knitting classes, but when I put my mind to it I decided that they actually could be pretty versatile.

After a bit of pondering we got on the phone to Anabela in Portugal to see if she could make our dreams come true and she that and some! These fleeces are made from a super plush bouclé fabric which is actually made from recycled plastic bottles! Magic I know! The fabric is light, soft, but most important of all it is really, really warm. Trust me you will absolutely love the fabric and the best thing about it is that you will feel snug and smug all at once.

Just to offer a bit of contrast there is brown trim throughout so then you don’t have any ugly edges and it looks a bit different to you usual fleece. I always think that a decent fleece should have a nice zip and equally it shouldn’t bulge when you sit down, so that is why we decided on a two way zip. The O-ring two way zip allows for a but more freedom when sitting in the pub, on your bike or watching some TV. The fleece is then finished with a tiny TRiCKETT embroidery on the chest, two front hand warmer pocket and a flag label at the side.

This particular fleece comes in our Blackpool Sea colour. Basically a corner stone of everything that we do here at TRiCKETT and let’s face it, who doesn’t love navy blue? They will be £65 for release week and then £75 thereafter. Anabela makes for many different brands and they made inferior quality fleeces for treble the price, so here you have a great value item, made from recycled materials and it is really warm. I mean, what more could you need?
