This is a 100% pure cashmere pullover sweater most likely made in Scotland - the labels are missing, but this came from a lady who had a large collection of Scottish cashmere sweaters, all either by Pringle or Ballantyne. It dates to the 1960s and is embroidered over the front with daisies. The cashmere is in a beige colour while the daisies are in brown, white, tan and red. The sweater has long sleeves and a high set rounded “jewel” neckline. It is unlined and the neckline, cuffs and bottom are ribbed. The cuffs are long enough that they can be turned, if desired. The sweater does up the upper back with a nylon zipper. The cashmere is light and ultra soft.
Label: Missing, but most likely Ballantyne or Pringle
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: 25” from the shoulder seam
Sleeve inseam: 17 1/2”
Bust: 40” around, taken under the arms
Bottom: 25” around, unstretched, stretches out to 34” max - it has a ribbed bottom
Overall length: 22”, 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 pretty embroidered daisies!
