Listed as men's, but their sweaters are unisex. Features include a shawl type collar, two patch pockets on the front, and a heavy-duty metal YKK zipper.
Kanata Hand Knit
Kanata designs draw inspiration from the distinct pattern and thick wool style that originated with the Cowichan, a Coast Salish people from Vancouver Island. Established in 1979, Kanata started with a group of grandmothers handknitting wool sweaters in Vancouver.

Very good condition - has some general wear/pilling consistent with age. This also has a slight smell and the wool is scratchy, so it is best worn as an outer layer over a long sleeve.
Since vintage items have a past and a story, they may show wear from age and storage. I do my best to inspect all items for flaws, make repairs when possible, and disclose them to you.
All my items come from a non-smoking home and are sanitized and steamed before they arrive at your door. Once cleaned, they are kept in a clean and dry location. They should not have any strong odor unless otherwise mentioned.
This item is sold from a vintage boutique in Huntington Beach, CA.
