Vintage 1960s Blue Cashmere Pullover Sweater with Oak Leaf Pattern Ladies M

$55.00

Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing

This is a 100% pure cashmere pullover sweater most likely made in Scotland - the labels are missing, but this came from a lady who had a large collection of Scottish cashmere sweaters, all either by Pringle or Ballantyne.  It dates to the 1960s and is embroidered over the front with leaves, I believe oak leaves, in two tones of blue and white against the navy blue solid background colour.  The sweater has short sleeves and a high set rounded “jewel” neckline.  It is unlined and the neckline, cuffs and bottom are ribbed.  The sweater does up the upper back with a nylon zipper.  The cashmere is light and ultra soft. 

Label: Missing, but most likely Ballantyne or Pringle   

Sizing: No size is indicated, and although the lady from whom this was acquired normally wore a medium size, please rely on the following measurements for fit:

Shoulders:  13” across, seam to seam

Sleeves:  8” from the shoulder seam

Bust:  38” around, taken under the arms

Bottom:  27”  around, unstretched, stretches out to 36” max - it has a ribbed bottom

Overall length:  21”, measured flat

Condition:  It is in very good condition with no pronounced wear, tear, holes or other defect.  I have laundered the item, so it is ready to wear. 

This is a lovely quality cashmere sweater featuring an attractive embroidered leaf pattern in pretty tones of blue!
