This is a striking 100% pure cashmere pullover sweater made in Scotland by Pringle.  It dates to the 1960s and is handprinted with a mod era paisley pattern, really fabulous.  The sweater is printed in colours of blue, red, yellow, green, black and dropped-out white.  The sweater has long sleeves and a high set rounded neckline.  It is unlined and the neckline, cuffs and bottom are ribbed.  It does up the upper back with a nylon zipper.  The cashmere is light and ultra soft. 

Label: Styled by Pringle for Eaton’s Made in Scotland.  Eaton’s was a Canadian department store chain that no longer exists.  They dropped the apostrophe from their name in 1971, so dating is easy to confirm.  A second label reads “Handprinted in Scotland by Pringle 100% Pure Cashmere Made in Scotland”.   

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:  14 1/2” across, seam to seam

Sleeves:  22” from the shoulder seam

Sleeve inseam:  17”

Bust:  40” 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 a perfect 60s paisley pattern - rare to see in cashmere like this!
