    RARE VINTAGE HANDKNIT COWICHAN STYLE SWEATER!

    Measurements:

    Chest: 21 1/2
    Sleeve: 36 1/4 (measured like a shirt)
    Shoulder: 17 1/2 (extends into sleeve)
    Length: 24 1/2 (bottom of collar to hem)

    Genuine Cowichan sweaters are handmade by the First Peoples of southeastern Vancouver Island, British Columbia, and are highly prized for their distinctive patterns and expert craftmanship.

    While this sweater is not a Cowichan (nor, incidentally, are many sweaters that are marketed as such!) it is a lovely sweater in the distinctive Cowichan style--heavy, rugged, hand-knit and with a beautiful stylized pattern--here, deer and snowflakes.
    This sweater would be perfect as an outer layer around a campfire in the Maine woods, walking a country path in Vermont, or walking the dogs on Boston Common!

    It could use a dry clean to freshen it up, and so is conservatively in Very Good/Excellent condition. This is a very rare opportunity to grab a wonderful and classic (North) American sweater!

    Asking just $25, or offer, boxed and shipped in the USA.
