These lovely vintage hand loomed and embroidered sweaters from the 1960s do not come up for sale very often and when they do, they are not in such great condition as this one now offered here for sale. Completely covered with colorful embroidered Daisies and plenty of greenery, too, this gorgeous vintage cardigan style sweater will delight all who will admire the new owner’s treasure. The Yellow, Pink, Green, Lilac, Powder Blue and Orange Red Daisies with French Knot centers are adorable and will look so good with the many colors in your wardrobe. The neutral background for this garden is cream colored 100% Virgin Wool that is a nice contrast for all of the colors used in the embroidery of this sweater. There are no buttons, but there are two metal hook and loop closures at the rounded neckline. I have shown the sweater being worn both with the hooks fastened and unfastened in the photos so you can see how it looks being worn either way. The Ragland Style sleeves are 3/4 length especially when you push them up just a little bit. This wool is substantial and soft and make no mistake about it. Although the floral design brings Spring to mind, this beautiful vintage 1960s sweater will be warm if you should choose to bring Springtime to Winter!
Condition: Very Good
There are two small spots of soiling on this sweater. One is on the bottom of the left sleeve. This faint spot is still visible despite the fact that the sweater has just recently been professionally dry cleaned. The other spot is more noticeable and not quite as faint as the one on the sleeve. It’s on the bottom left of the sweater just above the knit finishing band near a yellow Daisy. The good news is that these small issues will most likely never be seen unless you are specifically looking for them. This vintage sweater is clean and ready to wear.
