This navy blue sweater was made back in the 60s using a nice heavy wool that is great for blocking out the cold. It features a metal lightning zipper closure and two hand pockets. The sweater is patterned with two brown cows on the front with third cow adorning the back. 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 lots of popularity in the 1950s to the 1970s and it was even worn by celebrities like Marilyn Monroe.
Fits like a modern unisex adult large. The yarn is two different colors, see pics.
