Deer Cowichan Wool Sweater Coat


The wool for this sweater is 100% pure, Canadian wool, hand knit by Rachel Conlin at Irish Hills Farm, Apsley, Ontario.
The cream colour is the natural sheep's colour, the other colours are dyed and heat set. I hand spin much of the wool for this sweater, some of which comes from our Dorset sheep, on my traditional spinning wheel before knitting it into this beautiful, bulky sweater-coat. I really enjoy creating these sweaters. This sweater is one of a kind, made with thought, care and detail in mind. It is # 14 in the series of my sweater creations. I've done the deer in dark brown. The other colours besides the natural off white of the wool, are grey, some burgundy and dark green.
It has 5 wooden buttons for easy closure/opening.
Adult size large; fits chest size 42" to 46"
Adult size medium; fits chest size 38" to 40"
Adult size small; fits chest size 36"
Smaller or larger sizes are available upon request.
Washing instructions included.
This is a proud Canadian product made from a renewable resource.
