Sweaters, jumpers, pullovers, cardigans…call them what you will, but there’s no dispute that Pringle of Scotland weaves some of the world’s finest knitwear. Earlier this year, Pringle commissioned Glasgow-based artist David Shrigley to create a short, animated film about the house’s almost 200-year history. The result is a cheeky peek into the life of a sweater. From the wool’s incarnation on the beastie-covered-bellies of goats in Scotland’s rainy fields to the sweaters’ revelation on hilariously lanky models during a hyperbolically posh runway show, the film inspires a certain appreciation for Pringle’s process, or—at the very least—a hearty chuckle.
