Notes

*DUE TO OVERWHELMING DEMAND, THE SHEEP SWEATER IS NOW AVAILABLE FOR PRE-ORDER ONLY. Your sweater will be made (with love) just for you and shipped to you. We are now taking orders for sweaters that will be delivered in February-March 2021. Each sweater takes approximately six hours to make, and sweaters are made and delivered on a first-come, first-served basis. Because your sweater is being made-to-order just for you, we cannot accommodate cancellations and returns at this time (we will do our best to accommodate exchanges, pending availability). Please keep this in mind when finalizing your order — we hope you understand and apologize for any inconvenience. Most of all, we look forward to sending a sweater your way in early 2021.*

Warm & Wonderful created the original sheep jumper in 1979, and shot to fame when a young Princess Diana began wearing it. Joanna Osborne and Sally Muir, who founded Warm & Wonderful and designed the very first black sheep sweater, haven't produced the design since 1994, until now. Made to the original design, the Warm & Wonderful sheep sweater is back -- the original, and the same pattern famously worn by the Princess of Wales -- exclusively as a collaboration between Warm & Wonderful and Rowing Blazers.

PLEASE NOTE: This sweater runs small, we recommend sizing up.

Provenance

Our collection includes collaborations with several British designers closely associated with the late Princess of Wales. Most importantly, perhaps, we have brought back the iconic “sheep sweater” - a red knit jumper emblazoned with rows of sheep (including one black sheep) - famously worn by Princess Diana and originally designed by two young women in their twenties, Joanna Osborne and Sally Muir, in 1979. Their label, Warm & Wonderful Knitwear, began with a market stall in London’s Covent Garden, but shot to fame in the early ‘80s when Lady Diana Spencer began wearing one of their sheep jumpers to her fiancé Prince Charles’ polo matches. David Bowie, Andy Warhol, and a string of other icons of the era were also early Warm & Wonderful customers. “As artists, we've always identified with black sheep ourselves: because of a recessive gene, black sheep are born with black wool in flocks of otherwise white sheep (in a flock of a hundred, there might only be one black sheep!),” wrote Osborne and Muir. “Since Diana’s first public appearance in one of our bright red sheep jumpers — at a polo match in 1980 — she and the design have been inextricably linked.” The pattern has been copied from time to time, but Osborne and Muir have not produced the original since 1994... until now.  With a collaborative label, “Warm & Wonderful for Rowing Blazers,” the famous sweater is back. “This design been copied or referenced by others over the years (sometimes without crediting or acknowledging the original designers). But collaborating with the original designers is exactly what makes this so special to me,” says Rowing Blazers creative director Jack Carlson. “I can just picture Joanna and Sally in their twenties, selling their jumpers to Sloane Rangers, pop stars, and royalty. I think there’s a lot of nostalgia in the air right now. When I was little, in the early '90s, my family lived in Hampstead in north London, and my mother had one of the original sheep sweaters. It looks as great now as it did then.”
