1954 wool jumper - mended

1954 wool jumper - mended

This is a vintage 1954 jumper from the old Ohio Knitting Mills of Cleveland, Ohio. It features a wide neckline, raglan sleeves, and three quarter length sleeves. Knit in a combination of smooth and boucle' yarns in a variety of  nubbly textured stitches.

 

It has been discreetly darned in a few spots where the original wool strands had gone thin; this was done using a wool in a very closely matching shade of cream. (See last 3 photos for location of the darns - marked with orange markers just below reinforced areas.)

 

100% wool in shades of creams and browns.

100% wool is naturally anti-microbial, so can typically be worn 6-8 times between washings if aired out before putting away. 

  • Soak in tepid water with a small amount of gentle soap. 
  • Submerge, swish, then soak for about 10 minutes.
  • Rinse, gently pressing out the water. 
  • Do not wring or twist.
  • Roll in a towel and press or squeeze to remove all excess water.
  • Dry flat.  
  • Never wring or hang-dry, since wet wool stretches easily.
