Tompkins Knit V-Gusset Crewneck in Orange Brown
Since 1848, Tompkins has manufactured circular knitting machines, a benchmark in the fabric producing industry. The Tompkins Upright Rotary Knitting Machine, a rare vintage find, creates an even and light fabric with its slow and steady pace. This fabric is similar in texture and weight to fabric knit in the late 1800s, resulting in a true and authentic crewneck sweatshirt, like they were made in the past !
Loop & Weft decided to use this rare Tompkins machine for this Crewneck, resulting in a mid-weight, soft and easy to wear piece. Finished with 4 needle flat seam sewing construction and a V-Gusset insert.
