Each Cowichan Sweater Vest is an original and unique work of art hand-knit by Donna Louie and her family (Cowichan Tribe) using the best quality, hand-spun, un-dyed sheep's wool.
Contemporary Cowichan sweaters are knit from natural, hand spun, undyed sheep’s wool. This strong and stretchy yarn makes a sweater that keeps its shape. The high lanolin content of the wool makes a water repellant, stain resistant sweater that keeps its wearer warm and dry, absorbs body moisture, and ventilates body heat. These sweaters, if taken care of should last for decades. They are passed down from generation to generation.
These Cowichan Sweater Vests are all one of a kind and do not always conform to standard sizes. The larger the sweater, the more work and material, the higher the cost.
