Lovingly hand-knit, beautiful and soft (not scratchy!) Classic wear, perfect for those cold winter days or for when you're out and about with family hiking, camping, hunting or fishing! Knit from 100% pure Canadian wool, these sweaters are naturally water proof, and never go out of style! A true piece of Canadian Heritage. These sweaters are made to order. I only make a certain amount of sweaters per year, so please order early to avoid disappointment (I can only knit so fast!) as there is normally a wait list.
These sweaters are generally completed in 2-3 weeks, but this also depends on workload (how many are ahead of your order.) Feel free to message me for current turn-around time. Don't see the listing for the colour combo or pattern you're looking for? No problem! Message me for a custom order, and we can work together on exactly what you'd like :)

**These are finished measurements, noted in inches.
It's always a good rule of thumb to add in an inch or two after measuring the chest. This allows for clothing underneath, ease of movement and prevents the sweater from "riding up" when arms are raised. If you're unsure of what size you should order, please message me and I'll help!

Hand wash in cold water using a gentle soap. Soak the sweater in the suds and squeeze gently. Do not rub or leave to soak. Once sweater is clean, squeeze out as much water as possible. Do not lift the sweater by a corner from the wash or rinse water -always lift as a bundle. Remove excess moisture by rolling in a thick towel and lay garment on a flat surface away from bright lights, excess heat and not in sunlight. Do not hang to dry. While still damp, gently push sweater back to its original size and shape.
Tips to keep your Sweater beautiful for years to come:
Your sweater will eventually start to lose its natural oils with washing. To retain water repellency in your wool, add a tablespoon of olive oil to rinse water every couple washes. When your sweater is not in use, it should be stored flat in a drawer or cupboard. Hanging the garment on a hanger or hook will affect the shape.
Please pay within 2 days of your purchase.

We use Canada Post for all of our shipping, unless otherwise specified through special arrangement. A breakdown comparison of the different shipping methods can be viewed here:
Some of our items are "vacuum packed" to save on shipping costs for our customers. Being knit, these items usually fluff right up once they're out of the packaging. If you still see some scrunching, you can throw the item in the dryer (on air only) to help speed the process along.
We tend to ship 3 times a week (Mon, Wed, Fri) but this is increased to M-F during busy times. All of the shipping methods used include tracking and insurance except for items sent by regular mail/post (without an upgrade.) These are sent via oversized mail in Canada, and Small Packet in the US unless an upgrade is selected. All tracking info can be viewed through the "Purchases and Reviews" area of your account.
For orders going to the US or International customers, the buyer is responsible for any tarifs/duty/tax/etc due to import. I have no control over the time an item takes to clear customs.
If you have any questions, please feel free to ask! :)
