Vintage Scottish Hand Knit Fisherman Sweater Ladies Size L


Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing

This is a vintage Scottish hand knit fisherman sweater that is similar to the Irish Aran cable knit sweater.  It is hand knit in a ladies’ cardigan style - it buttons to the left.  The sweater closes with eight horn bone buttons and has raglan style sleeves.  There is a small pocket at either bottom side.

Age: this hand knit fisherman sweater dates most likely to the 1970s

Condition:  This hand knit fisherman sweater is in very good condition except for one tiny light stain at the right front by the third button (see last close-up photo) - quite minor and should come out with further effort.  

This is a very nice quality hand knit fisherman sweater, expertly knit with a heavier weight wool that should last a lifetime with proper care...
