Native Heritage In Each Yarn – An Introduction To Cowichan Knitting

With the cool weather approaching quicker than you might expect, we are getting a jump on the world of sweaters to make sure you, our beloved reader, will be equipped with what you need to be an informed buyer and marveler of the good stuff.

First on our list is the Cowichan Sweater, a style constantly floating around the internet, vintage shops, flea markets, the big screen, and beyond, without as much as a peep about their historical significance. Yes, they are objectively cool, but without the reverence surrounding what they really are and their place in the textile hall of fame of North America, you’re not really able to wear, let alone appreciate one to its fullest potential.
