The WYTHE cowichan is finally here! These have been something WYTHE has been aspiring to do for a few years now, but couldn't get quite right. It wasn't until they started working with their knitting partners in Peru that they were finally able to achieve this sweater that they are truly proud of.
These cowichans are about 90% hand-knit, with roughly 10% machine interaction. So much human touch has to go into these sweaters because of all the intricacies in the pattern, the designs, and the different linking across the shoulders and hems.
Made in a super-soft blend of alpaca and cotton using undyed, local yarns. The alpaca is a great way to keep this sweater nice and light, but still retaining a huge amount of warmth. The cotton comes in handy for giving the yarns some structure.

Buy your normal size. These WILL stretch so it's ok if they're a little snug at first.
