The traditional 5-ply Guernsey yarn was named for the Channel Islands but was spun from local wool in coastal areas all around the UK and Northern Europe. It was then knitted into warm working wear for sea-faring and (we have no doubt) farming and mining people. ¬†Also of course we get ‘Gansey’ and ‘Jersey’ from the same creative roots.
