Tag Brand: The Pinnacle
This awesome sweater was made by a Canadian brand called the Pinnacle in the 1960s, and the style resembles that of traditional Cowichan sweaters knit by the native Cowichan people of British Columbia. Like most Cowichan sweaters, this cardigan has been knit from a thick virgin wool yarn, and it features a shawl neck style collar, which makes it ideal for blocking out the cold. The sweater also has front hand pockets and a zipper closure. Both the front and the back are decorated with beautiful pheasant designs that have been knit using an intarsia technique.
Fits like a modern unisex adult medium. The zipper works but is a little stiff. There is moth damage near the zipper and spots on the front pocket and sleeve, see pics.
