Our Style

Amos & Andes has specialised in women and men’s traditional sweaters for over 28 years. Our success continues to grow each year through feedback from our customers who keep checking into the shop in Whistler, and online, to share the treasures we have found.  We are most interested in natural fibres and the highest level of craftsmanship, working with artists who share our passion and have these same ideals. 

Please enjoy our beautiful collections and we welcome your feedback.

Dale of Norway is synonymous with quality winter sweaters and sport excellence.  Dale of Norway has built a reputation as the world’s leading manufacturer of Norwegian sweaters.

Wool is our fabric of choice because of the fibres’ unique properties that makes it perfectly suited for the way Amos & Andes patrons wear our garments. Wool is also completely sustainable. It is a flexible, strong and non-static fibre in addition to being naturally soil — and water resistant. Wool is a great insulator against both cold and warm conditions, even when wet, is naturally flame retardant and can absorb up to a third of its weight in moisture before feeling wet. Perfect for strenuous activities.

Dale of Norway has specialized in wool garments since the company was established in 1879 and has been featured since Amos & Andes opened our shop in 1994.

Dale’s knitwear has a long and unique history of environmentally friendly products and production. Not only is Dale’s knitwear made with 100% natural wool, Dale of Norway’s production is powered by sustainable hydroelectric energy generated by local waterfalls in the Dale Valley of Norway.

Canadian Brand Cowichan is Canada. For over 150 years, the native Coast Salish people of Vancouver Island have created these distinctively patterned, hand-knitted sweaters, toques, mitts, and socks.  Each piece of Coast Salish Indian clothing is

unique, incorporating traditional designs of animals, birds, sea creatures, and geometric shapes.  The Salish knitting is a very old traditional art form; and over the decades these hand knitted sweaters have become well known for their beauty and expert craftsmanship. The Coast Salish Indian knitting represents historically the extraordinary resourcefulness, creativity, and adaptability of the people of the Coast Salish Tribes.

The clothing designs have been passed down from generation to generation; typically from mother to daughter, and there are some excellent male knitters as well. Please note the distinction that while we reference the shops of our other artisans, Cowichan sweaters are most often made right in the knitter’s home. The raw wool is hand washed, hand teased, hand carded, and finally hand spun. This meticulous hands on technique helps to preserve all of the natural oils that are found in the wool; making the sweaters water and stain resistant, and perfect for the Northwest Coast winters.

This beautiful art form is still used culturally in the winter dances of the Coast Salish longhouses, and it can be seen being worn by people from all walks of life, including Prime ministers, Presidents, and members of the Royal family.

Amos & Andes, The Whistler Sweater Shop have been unable to find enough authentic knitters to supply you, (if you know an indigenous knitter, please let us know). We still feel strongly that the Canadian tradition should be kept alive. Amos & Andes, The Whistler Sweater Shop has chosen to find other knitters within Canada to knit Canadian, Cowichan inspired designs for you to choose from.


Canadian Brand Thermohair socks are another truly Canadian product we love.

The socks are trademarked under Thermohair because they are made of Angora kid mohair, which is the first hair sheared from the young kid, Angora goat. This particular hair is very fine and soft, the most luxurious and expensive of the mohair grades. 

Since mohair comes from a goat and not a sheep, the fiber is completely different from wool. Most people that have allergies to wool can wear Thermohair Socks and experience and even warmer luxurious experience for their foot. Thermohair comfort and durability is unsurpassed. There's no other sock like them!


Irish Sweaters. At the turn of the 20th century,  Irish fishermen needed their clothes to be resilient against water, very warm, sturdy, and simple to repair. The winds and waves from the Atlantic Ocean make for challenging fishing conditions. They were constantly battling the harsh weather of the Aran Islands, off the coast of Galway and Clare.

For generations, the women on the Aran islands improved on the patterns of jumpers from the era and gave sweaters a unique Celtic touch.  Their goal was to make the sweaters both a work of art and functional for what their fishermen needed.
