Everyone should have one! -

This is a basic. It is perfect under jackets. The material is soft. It is well constructed. It can be dressed up or dressed down and can be worn for three seasons.

The sweater is lightweight, mostly cotton, so it should be nice alone or under a jacket for winter. It is a little on the short side.
Strange fit -

I gave it three stars because the previous sweater like this I ordered fit perfectly. When I tried this one on, it seemed skimpy. Compared to the other sweater, it was one inch shorter in length, but the sleeves were longer than the other. Strange. I returned it.
Best sweater! -

I own 4 of these sweaters. They are he best...wash and dry...always look terrific!
Excellent sweater -
I now have 3 of these sweaters and love them. The size fits perfectly. The sweaters are light weight enough I can pack them for a trip to England, and warm enough to keep the English chill off. Would definitely recommend this sweater.

Love the fabric and fit and know I'll enjoy wearing the sweater in cooler weather. A great sweater for dress or casual.
Suits the Weather -
By: Gershona from Fairport, NY
This sweater personifies Orvis: it is classic, good looking, and comfortable. The only thing that keeps me from a 5-star rave is that the crew neck is quite tight in pulling the sweater on or off. Once on, it's fine, not too snug at all. But getting there requires care not to get makeup on the fabric.
Better than chocolate fudge. -
By: Granny2 from Indiana
This sweater is great for all seasons, sizing is dependable, very versatile for casual or dressup wear, colors for anyone, appropriate for all ages. Looks good after many machine washings. It can't be beat!
Classy classic -
By: LimeyInIE2 from Southern California
This is a moderate-weight classic style sweater, beautifully constructed, soft to the skin and true to size. Contrary to instructions, I washed it on the delicates cycle in the washing machine, warmed it up enough in the dryer on the delicates cycle to smooth it out a bit, then took it out and smoothed it out flat to finish drying. Came out perfectly. I really like this good-looking, useful sweater.
Beautiful blouse -
Bought this for a daughter and like sooooo much I purchased 2 more. Now both daughters and granddaughter can enjoy this silk blouse.
|Cashmere: the fabric of kings|
The ancient fabric of choice for a royal family
Once again, we have Asia to thank for a prized textile. Cashmere is named for the Kashmir goats that inhabit the Himalayas and the mountainous regions of Central Asia that surround the Gobi desert. The harsh, extreme climate of the high desert plateaus are just right for producing the downy undercoat needed to make cashmere yarn. Cashmere was known to the Western world in ancient Roman times and it was the fabric of choice for Tibet’s royal family for centuries. Today, about 60% of the world’s cashmere, or approximately 3,000 tons, comes from Tibet and China.
A Gift from the Gobi
The coat of a Kashmir goat consists of a coarse outer coat, sometimes referred to as guard hair, and the fine downy undercoat, which is used to make cashmere yarn. The goats grow this ultra-soft, insulating inner layer for protection from the wild drops in temperature at night in the mountains and plateaus. This superior fiber is collected annually, during the spring molting season, when the animals naturally shed their winter wool. It is traditionally removed with a comb and separated by hand. Each goat produces a mere four to six ounces of downy fiber a year.
The Timeless Appear of Cashmere
As a knit, cashmere is lightweight and exceptionally warm. The yarn has a soft, silky finish and can be easily dyed. Like silk, cashmere’s exotic origins and sublime softness are timelessly appealing. Orvis is proud to bring you these handsome women’s cashmere sweaters. They are a great value, combining the ultimate in luxury with winter warmth and practicality – a wonderful gift for your friends, family, or yourself.
