This is a wonderful 1960s handloom woven wool hippie sweater.  It’s right out of the Age of Aquarius / Woodstock, very organic and an authentic period piece.  It is made out of tan and dark brown wool, very earthy.  It is made in a square bag-like loose style, with sewn back lapels at the V neck and right angle attached sleeves so that the piece is straight along the top.  The piece is designed to have dropped sleeves. The bottom of the piece is fringed. It is unlined.  The seams are open under the arms - I assume that this is meant to allow for greater movement, or for ventilation as this is probably a warm sweater, but you could always sew them up.
