Nantucket Sweater.

Indians named it Nantucket, meaning “faraway land.”

And that is what it still is.

In winter, the population drops down to 7,000; sometimes to 3,000. The little summer roses that cross the tops of cottages are gone.

The wind blows the waves back.

In winter, you breathe the lost sea smell.

Winter is the time to come, I think.

Try a small hotel. Bring books, good walking shoes. Give the fire in the fireplace the attention it deserves. Read… drink a little wine, eat thick chowder. Wander 15 miles up one side of the island and 15 miles back down the other side.

I did exactly those things 19 years ago.

Bought a good sweater there. I’d say it’s got another 19 years in it. Just located somebody to duplicate it; same uncomplicated cotton. Same fresh sea smell. Same odd construction, same mood as the original. Made without shortcuts. People often ask me where I got it. They're probably going to ask you too. Imported.

perfect cotton sweater
I have one in every color and am considering buying a few more for a reserve. these sweaters are soft, thick but not bulky, great shape and neckline that stays true through washing. Style is casual but not sloppy. A perfect sweater for all but the hottest temperatures.

My sweater arrived this morning. I tried it on and left it on as it is a chilly, rainy June day. It's so cozy!! I bought the red, which is a fabulous red, and definitely envision collecting all the colors. Way to go J. Peterman!!

Bought mine 35 years ago - like fine wine, gets better with age. Looks fantastic dressed up or down, and never ceases to get compliments from all ages. Am planning on buying another just in case this one has to retire some day!

I bought this sweater first 20 years ago, and again (in a smaller size!) 10 or so years ago. Still like new!!!

Worlds Best Sweater
This is a great sweater for our beach and boat winter weather. Cozy and soft but keeps its shape and doesnt pooch out at the elbows. I love wearing these sweaters and recommend them to everyone.

What did I do before you made these?
I own every color youve offered, and dont know how you do it for the price. Even in the South, its all-year-round colors are true I love the fit and its as well-made as all your products. Should you stop making it, warn us, please!
