Those are pretty amazing, thank you for sharing!
Wonderful ad and sweaters - I love the one with the cherries!
Oh my, those are wonderful--the pink strawberries one has an identical silhouette to the one in the ad!
I had a lovely Catalina jacquard, but it was a couple of decades later...
Truly wonderful, I don't think I've ever seen such lovely sweaters from this era. I love the man's sweater in that ad with the deer!
Wow thanks so much for sharing these. Love that deer sweater!
I have never seen one of these earlier sweaters, but they look fabulous.
My parents always had gobs of mothballs in cheese cloth dangling from hangers and also in their drawers. This is from a 1943 advertisement for Catalina.
Your sweaters are beautiful and I love your passion for learning! Thank you for sharing.

A lot of dry cleaners will have someone who can do it. Call around and ask to see examples of their work. I'm not familiar with the Chicago company.
