Research Dept: 1960s Tweedsbury by The Country House cardigan sweater

The label has that distinctive Country Squire meets Yankee homespun look I've seen in a lot of early 60s clothing labels.

Research turned up an advertisement in a 1965 newspaper, the October 31 issue of the News and Courier of Charleston, South Carolina. The ad is for Dawn's Village Shop on Rivers Ave.  How you'll love the truly Traditional Styling ...

The drawing, clearly hand done, each outfit neatly framed in a sweet wreath. Further research uncovered that Tweedsbury was trademarked in North Carolina. Wonder how the sweater wound up all the way up here in the Catskills, half a century later?

The sweater, a shetland wool cardigan with lovely grosgrain trim down the front, now in the shop.
