Leuchtfeuer-Strickwaren is one of a few German traditional companies producing maritime garments

Story Behind the Brand For more than 60 years Leuchtfeuer Strickwaren has been producing knitwear in Germany for sailors. The Leuchtfeuer Strickwaren company is a family business and was founded in 1956 by Adolf Grohmann and his wife. Leuchtfeuer knitwear specialises primarily in troyer - marine style pullovers. The company was responsible for hand knitting the famous 'Beacon Sweater' and a small range of caps and socks worn by fisherman and mariners of the time and since then, has taken this quality and aesthetic into your everyday wardrobe.

Care Instructions: Leuchtfeuer Strikwaren wool pieces can be dry cleaned, washed by hand, or with a gentle machine wash at 30°C or cooler using a mild wool wash detergent. Do not use the tumble dryer, instead wring out any excess water with a dry towel and lay flat and reshape the wool where necessary.
