My husband now has four of these sweaters. He loves them and they look good! He gets compliments at work.
A disappointment -
By: Piscatore from Virginia
I've been happily wearing Orvis sportswear for a couple of decades and this one has been a real let-down. After wearing this sweater approximately seven or eight times it began to show lots of fuzzy loose clumps of wool. Sorry to say that I won't be purchasing merino from Orvis any longer.
GREAT QUALITY -

I was unsure of this sweater when I ordered it and was delighted when I first put it on. I did have to order a xx so be careful it runs small.
Great Purchase -

an excellent mid-weight sweater -
By: dmgvaus from Northern VA
This sweater is a perfect weight for late fall and winter. The quality is what I have come to expect from Orvis and the Merino wool is perfect. It is the perfect choice for many occasions
Very nice -
Enjoy wearing this sweater...very warm and comfortable. Can wear with a T shirt or with a button down shirt underneath.

As all of the other items I have ordered from Orvis, you can tell quality craftsmanship comes first. The only thing about this sweater is that it is a little loose on the arms.
An ancient and universal fiber
One of the oldest and most universal fibers, felted or woven wool has been used for garments and household linens since the earliest civilizations. Wool textiles have been documented as far back as 3,000 B.C.
The superior quality of wool from merino sheep
Thousands of years of evolution and selective breeding have resulted in merino sheep capable of producing a super-fine wool fiber. One square inch of merino fleece produces nearly four times as many wool fibers as other breeds of sheep. Interlaced with millions of microscopic air pockets, which act as Nature’s most effective insulator, merino fibers naturally reduce the passage of heat by trapping air between the woolen fibers. Because merino fibers are smaller in diameter and more abundant than in any other wool, they trap more air and keep the wearer naturally more comfortable.
Versatile, durable and comfortable
Merino wool keeps the wearer warm in cold weather and cool in hot weather. These remarkable fibers also absorb up to 30% of their own weight in moisture, pulling vapor away from the body so that the wearer stays dry and comfortable regardless of the temperature.
Fine merino wool is soft, not scratchy!
Modern technology has made it possible to sort and select only the finest merino fibers. Merino wool has a microscopic diameter—about one-third to one-tenth the thickness of a human hair. The smaller the diameter, the finer, softer, and less scratchy the fabric will be. Lustrous merino wool produces fabric that can be worn next to the skin without discomfort, is soft, and always provides an exceptional hand and distinctive style. Orvis offers a wide range of luxuriously soft merino wool clothing for men.
