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% hand knit woolen yarns.
Our reproduction is taken from an example that was featured in the "Threads of War" exhibit in Charleston, SC, as well as numerous photographic examples from the mid 19th century. Our sweaters come with wooden dish buttons.
Please note that if you order a size/color not in stock, it may be 8-10 weeks (estimated) before you receive your order. PLEASE UNDERSTAND THAT BEFORE YOU ORDER. Thank you for your understanding.
