This light blue sweater was made back in the 60s using a nice heavy wool that is great for blocking out the cold, it's also lined for extra warmth and comfort. It features a front zipper closure and two hand pockets. The sweater is patterned with scuba divers swimming around on both the front and the back, and navy blue accents adorning the cuffs. This style of the sweater with its heavy material and shawl neck collar is modeled after the sweaters traditionally knitted by the Cowichan people of Vancouver island in Canada. This style gained popularity in the 1950s and they were even worn by celebrities like Marilyn Monroe.
Fits like a modern unisex adult large. There is fading on the sleeves, see pics.
