Indian Cowichan Sweaters

Indian Cowichan Sweaters

Each cowichan sweater is hand-knit and designed specific to each customer’s preference. Customer’s can choose from various patterns to design his/her own sweater. However, like all hand-made goods each sweater is knit at time of order and usually take 2-3 weeks to make.

Each adult size cowichan sweater requires over 4 pounds of wool. The cowichan sweater could be washed in very mild detergent (so as not to remove the natural oils), and the sweater will have a life span of around 50 years. Treated properly, without chemical detergents, the wool retains its lanolin which is the natural oil that gives the wool its strength and integrity and makes the cowichan sweaters both warm and water-resistant.  The natural oil also gives the sweater its water repellent ability during snow and rain.
