Sweet Disorder Vintage

1940s Hand-Knitted Tyrolean Cardigan

Sold out

True vintage 1940s cardigan hand-knitted in a Tyrolean style. Cheerful yellow and red floral sprays hand-embroidered on the chest. Textured metal buttons. Grosgrain ribbon is hand-stitched on the inside of the button placket & neckline for structure, also little strips hand-stitched inside at the shoulder seams (See photo of the sweater inside out). 100% wool. When you touch this sweater the wool has the distinctive feel and quality of 1930s/40s pieces, different than a modern repro piece or even something made in the 70s. Excellent condition with no staining or damage to the knit. The armpits show skillful period darning to reinforce them. The darning blends almost imperceptibly into the knit and is invisible when worn (see closeups). There two tiny period mends in other places, also invisible from the outside. These lovingly made treasures were often handed down as family heirlooms, and great care has been taken over the years to keep this beauty in tip top shape. Freshly hand washed and air dried, ready to wear.
