Cowichan Knit Toque - Thunderbird
Artist: Dale Edwards
Contemporary Cowichan items are knit from natural, hand spun, undyed sheep’s wool. This strong and stretchy yarn makes a sweater that keeps its shape. The high lanolin content of the wool makes a water repellant, stain resistant sweater that keeps its wearer warm and dry, absorbs body moisture, and ventilates body heat. These sweaters, if taken care of should last for decades. They are passed down from generation to generation.
Knitter, Dale Edwards hand knit this incredible Thunderbird design toque.
The Thunderbird is a mythical creature considered to be the most powerful of all spirits. The powers come from the curved appendages on their heads.
