Curling sweaters, also known in Canada as "Mary Maxim sweaters" (after the company which published popular knitting patterns for the sweaters in the 50s and 60s), are properly called Cowichan sweaters, after the Cowichan people of British Columbia to whom the technique and design belong. These heavy knit, weather resistant, patterned wool sweaters have been popular since the 19th century.
This sweater is so nice it should be ill-eagle! Heavy wool knit body. All around American-style eagles and diamond pattern. Warm shawl collar and YKK brand zipper. Two front pockets. This sweater also has a satin lining to stop itchiness. In true Canadian curling sweater tradition, this was handmade at home. The most adorable label reads "Made with Tender Loving Care by Sharon Wilson".
This is the definitive style of sweater for Canadian winters.
