The Cowichan sweater is a garment created in North America with a distinctly patterned design knitted out of bulky-weighted yarn. It originated during the  19th century among the Cowichan, a Coast Salish people, British Columbia. Each sweater has a unique design, thickness, size, and shape.  All of the sweaters are made from bulky home-spun wool that is unprocessed — one of the key features that distinguish a genuine from an imitation. All sweaters are knit in a tubular fashion using two or three natural wool colors, including white, blackish-brown and grey. They also include a shawl-style collar and a v-neck with extra folded fabric on the back of the neck.  

The Thunderbird is a mythical creature that is said to be the dominating force of nature.
