Sweater White For Women
The sweater as a fashion ensemble in line of women's casual clothes is a new kid in the block. Back in the 19th century, British fishermen wanted a garment that would keep them somewhat dry during work. Wools have the property of repelling water and keep the wearer warm even when they are wet. Since this discovery about the properties of wool, the wives of the fishermen improvised a form of sweater for their husbands. However, the credit for heralding the sweater into the domain of men and women's casual clothes partly goes to the Earl of Cardigan, James Brudenell. The late Earl was known to favor woolen close fitting jackets after which the modern day sweater is modeled.
