$85.00

Brand Poppy's Vintage Clothing

This is a wonderful quality 100% pure cashmere pullover sweater made in Scotland by Ballantyne for Holt Renfrew of Canada.  I believe that it dates to the late 1960s.  It is made in black and has a geometric linear pattern on the front that has flowers interspersed in tones of blue and pink with yellow centres and green leaves.  It has a wide rounded neckline and long sleeves.  It does up at the upper back with a nylon zipper. It is unlined and the cuffs and bottom are ribbed.   

Label: Made in Scotland Exclusively for Holt Renfrew of Canada by Ballantyne 100% Pure Cashmere.  There is a second label that reads “100% Pure Cashmere Made in Scotland”.    

Sizing: Size 40”/102 cm is indicated, and although the lady from whom this was acquired normally wore a medium size this may fit a large size - please rely on the following measurements for fit:

Shoulders:  18 1/2” across, seam to seam

Sleeves:  23” from the shoulder seam

Sleeve inseam:  20”

Bust:  40” around, taken under the arms

Bottom:  28”  around, unstretched, stretches out to 38” max - it has a ribbed bottom

This is a beautiful quality cashmere sweater - pretty pattern!
