Dale Rutherford began making baskets nearly 20 years ago, after retiring from a 30 year career as a dental hygienist. She began showing her work at Nantucket Looms approximately 15 years ago and has taught the children's weaving program at The Lightship Basket Museum for the past 10 years. Additionally, Rutherford has worked at the museum in various volunteer capacities for the past 15 years, and enjoys the many aspects of life as a weaver.

Designed in the late 1960’s for Nantucket Looms, our classic boatneck sweater never goes out of style. Originally designed to be worn without a shirt underneath, the boatneck can be worn in a more fitted fashion or select the next size up for a looser fit. The saddle stitch shoulders and high boatneck collar are distinctive to this sweater. Unisex sizing.
