My Pollen Sweater
I just had to write to brag on how much I enjoy my Pollen sweater. I bought it there at the store in 2005, and have worn it a ton over the years. It still looks as good as the day I bought it. At one point my new puppy got ahold of it and ripped up one of the arms – I sent it back to you, and in short order you fixed it and returned it to me looking like brand new. I brag on you all the time. Admittedly, not too many people in Pittsburgh (where I live) find their way to Lund. But I still brag on you.SheldonSheldonJune 24, 2023
10+ year review of a damn fine sweater
I’m dropping you and your crew a note of heart-felt thanks for making one of the finest sweaters I’ve owned. My partner and I each bought one over 10 years ago, and I swear they barely look worn. And it’s not like we don’t wear them! We live in Minnesota, and they are perfect. Right now I’m wearing mine at work where it’s 72 degrees with just a sleeveless undershirt on under it. So next-to-my-skin comfy! When I go home, where I keep the winter thermostat at 62 degrees F, I’ll be just as comfortable. It seems to be the perfect weight. I can put a light wool zip neck under it for a little extra warmth and I will be toasty. In spring and summer, its temperature range is spectacular. I wear it for work including presentations, and I wear it when I’m wood carving. So versatile!!!!! And simply mindless to care for. I’m telling you what I’m sure you already know–it really looks new after all these years. Thanks for making a fantastic hard working, good looking, and long lasting sweater. My partner feels the same way about theirs! Oh, and Pond Scum is the best!
yours sincerely,LieslJanuary 17, 2020
Love my Pollen!!
I just got my Pollen placket sweater yesterday. We live off grid on the ocean and surrounded by snowy mountains and damp forest on Indian Arm BC. We are boat access and rely mostly on our wood stove for heat. No matter what I wore before I couldn’t get warm enough especially in colder parts of our home or outside. When I put on my Pollen sweater it feels like a warm hug! It is so soft and comfortable, fits really well, looks flattering and keeps me cozy and dry for sure! My friend and neighbour recommended I get one and I’m so glad I did! Thank you for making such a beautiful, practical and functional sweater. It’s perfect for this modern day pioneer. I’ll definitely order another one!

Sailing trip to the Antarctic Peninsula.
I enjoyed wearing my Pollen Sweater everyday on a month long kayaking and sailing trip to the Antarctic Peninsula. I was warm and cozy not itchy or stinky for the whole month. Thanks again for the amazing product. I even wore it under my kayaking dry suit.VivianApril 7th, 2019
He wore his Pollen hat 24/7 all last winter
The new sweaters for my husband and I arrived in the mail last week. I enjoyed my first sweater last winter, and he is now equally thrilled with the wind-cutting ability of his placket sweater when he’s out on the water.
He wore his Pollen hat 24/7 all last winter and plans to wear both pieces together.
So, thanks to Pollen sweaters for providing made-in-Canada ways to help get through our wet coastal winters!- JoanOct 9, 2018
Still Going Strong since 1996
I bought my sweater at your store in 1996. I was there with my fish boat from Comox and came to Lund regularly. A year later I bought another one to give to a friend who also still wears it a lot.
For the last 19 years I have been working in Europe, mostly Holland, Ireland and the UK. Still on boats and fishing recreationally.
After 22 years your sweater still keeps me warm in all weather conditions. It has been washed carefully many times and still looks great.- JohnSept 8, 2018

I’ve had my placket neck pollen sweater for 14 years… it hasn’t got a single nick or pulled thread despite years of wearing it in the bush and packing firewood. Once I dropped it in some dry burdock and it took months to pull all the burrs out!– BillMarch 12, 2011

MOJO 2011 Adventures
Our Pollen sweaters, made by a small outfit (I mean small) in Lund, BC are simply the best sweaters we ever laid our hands on. On MOJO, wool is the key to keeping warm and comfortable. These non-itchy sweaters are tightly knit of 100% superwash wool, are hand stitched and are inspired by the sweaters traditionally worn by loggers and fisherman of the West Coast. Our sweaters were made to order by Pollen specifically for the MOJO crew and were supplied to us at a nice discount by Wright Mariner Supplyin Coal Harbour.-MOJO CrewMay 29, 2011

Pollen Sweater in the Dryer
I’m not proud of it… but I just warmed my Pollen up in the dryer to go pick my kid up from work. It’s chilly out but I was so toasty!– Rebecca BosmaJanuary, 2013
Thanks for keeping my new baby warm!– Trevor FormosaApril, 2013
Back to school sweater
Nothing says great start to the kindergarten school year like my Pollen.– Crystal MitchellSeptember 5, 2013
I LOVE my new sweater
Thank you sooo much for the order. I LOVE my new sweaters. Each one fits perfectly as specified on your website. The colours are beautiful, the sleeves are long, the body falls below the belt line. All qualities you look for in a winter sweater. By far the most satisfying purchase I have ever made. My mother is going to be placing an order very soon.– Many thanks! JenniferSeptember, 2013
The Adventure Sweater
I have had one of your placket sweaters for about 25 years. It has a name – The Adventure Sweater – and has been on every adventure, from ski trips, hikes, sailing and canoe trips, to trip to the hospital when both my children were born. Despite having been heavily used (for daily wear as well as adventures), it still looks like new. Probably the best thing I have ever owned, and I’ll probably be buried in it.– Thank you! NevilleOctober, 2013
I’m looking forward to receiving my new sweater. I bought one last year and have barely taken it off – it is so warm, and beautiful – I still can’t believe it holds up so well to washing and drying, it is quite amazing and I use it for all my fieldwork studying sea otters on Calvert Island, B.C.– Erin Rechsteiner August 2014
