This is a lovely quality 100% pure cashmere pullover sweater made in Scotland by Ballantyne for Holt Renfrew of Canada.  It dates to the 1960s.  The border of the opening is knit with a decorative raised “roped” pattern in tones of pink and white while the rest of the sweater is a solid pink colour.  It has above-the-wrist length sleeves and a rounded “jewel” neckline.  It does up with eight covered buttons. It is unlined and the neckline, cuffs and bottom are ribbed.  The cashmere is in a medium thickness yet light and ultra soft.
