A Warm, Reliable Sweater. Pleasantly Surprised.
This is a heavy, well-made sweater that surprisingly looks, smells, feels, and functions exactly as you'd expect — I find most responsibly made stuff needs to make a trade-off somewhere, usually for a good reason — I didn't expect not having to compromise.
It's comfortable and soft enough to wear with just a tee shirt underneath if you're running quick errands around town and need to toss something on. You can also throw on a good base layer underneath and that should be a pretty reliable set up for cold weather. I wouldn't consider this for really active pursuits (climbing, hiking, etc.) simply because it's so warm and thick, but it's solid for everyday life. Really glad I have it before we start sliding into the cold, humid winter. The wool really helps counter the heat loss from the humidity. If you're after this kind of sweater and style, it'll definitely fit the bill.
