Well hello there.. It has been a while!
Sorry for the lack of content over here on Country Frantics, things haven’t really been all that interesting since Covid hit us! On that note, I hope everyone is safe & well!

Now, December only means one thing in my eyes… CHRISTMAS! A time for family, eating lots of food & of course, giving presents! I don’t know about you, but giving presents is a lot more exciting than actually receiving them! I love seeing the look on family & friends faces when they open something I have bought them, it just gives me a warm feeling inside and makes me so happy!
I really like to put a lot of thought in to the presents I buy for people, I don’t want to buy something that they are going to chuck in the cupboard or gift on at a later stage to someone else. Presents I buy are personal and usually, always welcomed.

This then gets me on to a little gift I received a while ago, which no doubt, is one of my favourite items I have now and that is the Ginger & Jardine Silky Bamboo Roll Neck in blue/green/brown check. I had my eyes on these roll necks for a while, lots of people were wearing them on instagram and I was intrigued. I showed my interest in their Country Clothing and I was really kindly gifted a roll neck of my choice and I have to say, I was impressed from the moment I opened the packaging.. The material is SO soft and the check pattern is just to die for. It also is great because they are Suffolk based, which is just down the road from me! Supporting local…

These roll necks come in a variety of different colour ways and also plain, but the classic check print really stands out from the crowd because you can have a country shirt effect, without being uncomfortable! Bonus! Ginger & Jardine have really thought about everything while designing their roll necks. From supreme comfort from the silky soft bamboo fabric that feels amazing against the skin, to the practicality of their product while going about your day to day country pursuits! 

I really have put my roll neck to the test.. Riding, doing stable duties, beating.. You name it, I’ve done it in this roll neck. But not only that, I feel great while doing it as well because I feel stylish but comfortable and that is the aim of the game! I love pairing this roll neck with jeans, under a Schoffel & Barbour Jacket and I always get complimented on it!

So why bamboo? I have only ever really tried bamboo socks, so I wasn’t aware of the great qualities of wearing bamboo until now, but here is why bamboo is a great fabric and definately something to add to your wardrobe:

  • Moisture Wicking
  • Anti-Bacterial
  • Breathable
  • Thermo Controlling
  • Extremely Soft

I can wear my Ginger & Jardine roll neck with ease in the Spring and in Winter, the thermo controlling fabric keeps me at just the right temperature to the weather conditions, it really is so versatile. I have never worn this roll neck while doing high exercise and had to worry about sweating, which is great! It keeps me dry and is so breathable. I cannot wait to order a few more colour-ways and extend my wardrobe further. The roll neck is 100% my go-to now for keeping warm during the winter under my layers and for adding that country feel to an outfit when going out.

Interested? I guessed you would be..
When picking sizing for your roll neck, I would say they are completely true to size. I am wearing an XS which is their sizing for a size 8 and it fits perfectly. They are ultra stretchy to give a tight fitting, but you can up a size if you would like a looser fit. The cut is elegant and also a little longer than standard, but not too long, don’t worry if you are short like me!
What is also great is that.. These come in mens as well! Great for shooting lads! That check shirt effect but with comfort and no restrictive movement!

So who are Ginger & Jardine?
Born, bred & based in Suffolk Ginger & Jardine was founded after the response to the frustration of trying to find clothing that offered comfort and durability but was also stylish and affordable.
Lynne, the founder of Ginger & Jardine grew up on a Country Farm where most of her childhood was spent outdoors. After completing her degree at the Royal Agricultural College she went on to qualify as a Rural Practice Surveyor before moving in to the Telecommunications Sector. Having enjoyed her career and frequent staying away took its toll on family life, in search of a new challenge, Ginger & Jardine was born. All of their clothing is designed in house and they aim to ensure ultimate comfort whilst not compromising style. As well as looking and feeling good their products are ethnical and sustainable using fabrics that do not drain natural resources. Following months of research, testing and trials, Ginger & Jardine opted for Bamboo based fabrics for their amazing qualities and have lots of lovely products available. 

Ginger & Jardine can offer you the perfect Christmas gift for that special someone. With a range of different products for men, woman & children, there truly is something for everyone!
I feel every single person should experience the ultimate comfort of wearing a Ginger & Jardine Bamboo roll neck! You can get 10% off of your first order if you sign up to and subscribe which will also give you exclusive offers and the latest information, new products and promotions.

Thank you for reading, until next time..
