So soft and comfortable!

I have had my hoodie for at least two years now (I got the orange one). I have worn it everywhere; I've used it as a sun shirt and it works great and feels cool because it's super thin. I've worn it skiing as my base layer. I've worn it running on cool mornings when I need something just a little warmish on my arms. I don't baby it and it looks new still. I bought several other items after that and they are all just the best of the wool items I own. They're worth it and beautiful.

Comfortable & great fit

I ordered my normal (medium) size. While I can wear small or medium, I usually prefer a medium fit (not snug); and the sizing for this shirt was great. The salmon is beautiful--I have no other clothing in that color, so a nice change. Also prefer the thumb loops sewn in the sleeves vs the normal slits, Wore it hiking once, but haven't yet tested on a hot day. Happy with this purchase!

I like it but it arrived different from the picture

Holes after first wash.

Had high hopes for this piece, but I found several pinholes after the first gentle wash. The thumb loop stitching is also coming apart. For the price, this is so disappointing! After reading some other reviews, I see the holes are a common issue. I guess we're back to finding another wool top that holds up better.
