Dawson Sweater
  0 customer reviews

Most men prefer sweaters that are practicaland comfortable, but a little luxurious high style never hurt anyone. The merino-cashmere blend yarn used here means this sweater can be worn right next to the skin.
I am a historian of science, so I name some of my designs for scientific figures from the past. In the 1870s, Scottish mill owner Joseph Dawson traveled to Kashmir to attend his daughter’s wedding. There, he saw how Kashmiris dehaired, spun, and wove cashmere shawls by hand. After Dawson returned home, he developed and patented the first mechanical process for dehairing this fiber, and he is widely credited as the founder of the modern cashmere industry.
