This is a striking 100% pure cashmere pullover shell sweater made in Scotland by Ballantyne for Holt Renfrew of Canada.  It dates to the 1960s.  The sweater is in a very attractive cherry red colour, a little towards the magenta tone.  It is basically sleeveless or has cap sleeves, has a rounded “jewel” neckline, and is otherwise very simple.  It does up at the upper back with a nylon zipper. It is unlined and the neckline, arm openings and bottom are ribbed.  The cashmere is light and ultra soft.
