This vintage shawl collar sweater was made in the 1940s in Stratford on Avon, Ontario, Canda from Ballantyne pure wool.  The style is basically unchanged from the shawl collar cardigans popular in the US in the 1920s. Canadians continued producing this style after the trend had passed in the United States, and these were very popular with Curlers.
