I love angora sweaters! Fluffy angora sweater popularity in fashion seems to come and go (Ed Wood-types nonwithstanding). But there are certain eras where it seems like everyone is wearing it. The ’80s were really into angora, with those bold, bright outrageously furry 80% angora sweaters from Korea. The ’40s, ’50s, and ’60s were also good decades for wearing angora. There seems to be a resurgence of the fluffy furries in fashion currently.
This cover from the November 1968 issue of Seventeen magazine features a really pretty model (Tina Shartz) wearing a really pretty pink angora sweater. It has the most amazing hooded cowl neckline! The cover description says that boys (especially the boy next door) will melt in a moment when you wear one of winter’s great irresistibles — a pink-cloud pullover that’s angelically hooded and devilishly pretty! It’s long, supple and soft as a sigh in angora and lambswool.
The boy next door is on the cover too!
