There are numerous examples of 19th century men's sweaters that can be seen in period images and in some collections, but due to the work involved in reproducing such garments, they have rarely been available to the living history/museum community. We have worked to remedy that, and are now offering men's 19th century knit sweaters, made from 100% woolen yarns. Our reproduction is taken from an example that was featured in the "Threads of War" exhibit in Charleston, SC. Our sweaters come with wooden dish or large mother of pearl buttons. Due to demand, we have decided to take orders for these as well as provide them in stock, when possible. However, please note that if you order a size/color not in stock, it may be up to 8 weeks (estimated) before you receive your order. Our knitters can do approx. 10 of these sweaters a month, so depending on volume of orders the wait could be 8 weeks. PLEASE UNDERSTAND THAT BEFORE YOU ORDER. I cannot answer multiple "where's my sweater" emails BEFORE the order has been placed for at least 8 weeks. Thank you for your understanding.
