WW2 Schlupfjacke 42 Roll Neck Jumper by Richard Underwood

After various field test's the German Army adopted a knitted sweater (jumper) in 1936.

The first "Schlupfjacke" or sweater had a "V" neck design and was called the Schlupfjacke 36,  a later model was made with a "Roll Neck" which is also called a "Turtleneck" designed for increased warmth this later model was called the "Schlupfjacke 42".

This is top quality turtle neck knitted sweater is made to the correct knitted pattern and the correct colour. These look great under a field service tunic like the M40 and M43 tunic but the turtle neck really stands out when worn it is under a "Wrap over" tunic where the tunic is more open.

The Turtle neck jumper was worn by all troops including Waffen SS and Army units. The design follows the war time design and is more complicated than a standard sweater as there are 3 different types of weave patterns in the design and it has the correct 1940's style having a very wide/deep waist band.

The German Turtleneck jumper by Richard Underwood Militaria has the following features: 

  • Close fitting roll neck with a single seam on one side.
  • The roll neck has the same tight weave as the waist band and sleeve cuffs with the addition that the last 2cm of the neck is made in a more open weave so it sits better when folded/rolled down.
  • There are three types of knitting weave in the jumper the sleeve cuffs, roll neck and the waist band are the tightest knit, the main body and the sleeves are slightly more open knit and the shoulders are the most open knit. The weave/knit are still all a closed knit (do not think you can see daylight through the knitting, you can't) they are just knitted to give more movement where you need it. So the shoulders allow the most movement and the waist band pulls in tight to keep a good fit.
  • To give you an idea on how wide the waist band is on a size small it is 17cm wide (it goes 17cm up the body).
  • Cuffs are 8cm long on a size small.
  • Made with 30% wool and 70% Polyacrylic, which is a type of polyester which resembles wool yarn so it still looks like wool. With this mix the sweater still feels like wool. The very first jumpers made in 1936 had a 90% wool content but as the war progressed the wool content became less and less and more man made fibres where used in the production so this mix is probably about right for a mid to late war jumper.
  • Quality jumper made in Europe.
  • Really nice grey colour with a green tint to it.
