Hi, friends! Sorry for being absent. After getting back from Austria I was just a wee bit jet lagged. I also returned to an incredibly busy weekend that was jammed packed full of events I absolutely had to attend, you know like a kid’s band concert, and my in-laws 50th wedding anniversary. Then we hosted Thanksgiving for the family… So yeah… Just getting back into a bit of normalcy in my world.
I’ve had an oversized gray cardigan on my mental shopping list for a while. You need serious sweater game when you live in Michigan because you spend so many months in them here. When I spotted I thought it just might fit the bill and fill that gaping hole in my closet. I pondered it for a while and after being so happy with my other Everlane purchases, I decided to give it a try.
I was a wee bit hesitant about pushing the button because I have sensitive skin and was afraid that the sweater may be itchy. I’m OK with merino wool and cashmere, but regular wool can drive me bonkers. I’m happy to report that it is NOT itchy. It is the comfiest thing EVAH. It is 92% wool and 8% cashmere, so I’m sure the cashmere has a bit to play with that.
It’s warm without being TOO warm. The weave is just right. It’s not too thin and not too thick. My mother-in-law tried it on and wants one too now. And she is pickier than me! BAM! Result? Two thumbs up. I highly recommend giving this sweater or another of the Everlane wool-cashmere sweaters a try. PRO-TIP: Size down. I originally ordered a medium and had to send it back for the small. Again, this is not sponsored in any way. I just like sharing my high-quality finds with you. I’m nice like that.
I hope all my American friends had a great Thanksgiving holiday and didn’t get trampled in any of the Black Friday sales. I like to shop Black Friday on my iPad. It’s safer that way. Be safe out there. Those mall parking lots are deadly. Nothing says holiday spirit like running people over to get a parking spot!
Thank you so much for stopping by!
