COWICHAN knitwear is is an iconic First Nation Clothing item with a fascinating history. Warm and water resistant, these sweaters are visual statements, symbols of West Coast heritage. A Canadian cottage industry that originated on Vancouver Island, these garments were named for the Natives of the Cowichan Valley. Cowichan sweaters are knit from natural, hand spun, undyed sheep’s wool. The high lanolin content of the wool makes a water repellant, stain resistant sweater that keeps its wearer warm and dry, absorbs body moisture, and ventilates body heat. These sweaters if taken care of, should last for decades. They are passed down from generation to generation.
