The Threads of Time

The Cowichan sweater is more than just a garment—it’s a canvas narrating the tales of the Coast Salish people. From ancestral legends to personal stories, every pattern is shaped by its knitter. Learn more about the rich tapestry woven into every piece.


Can you explain the price point and structure?

Indigenous knitters of Cowichan sweaters purchase their wool at retail prices, which can cost upwards of $100 per sweater. It can take up to 40 hours to knit a single sweater. Traditionally, knitters have been paid between $120-$200 per sweater by local tourist shops, which translates to $1-3/hr above cost. Knit was created to rectify this undercompensation. Knitters receive the majority of proceeds from each sweater sale ($500). The remaining funds are used to operate the Knit website, staff, and services through the Victoria Native Friendship Centre.

Are all of the knitters indigenous?

Yes, all of our knitters are Indigenous artisans dedicated to preserving their cultural heritage through their craft.

Every Knit sweater comes with a lifetime guarantee. We offer free repairs for eligible damages, including fraying, wear due to use, and seam integrity issues.
