    Very handsome ! - 1/26/2015

    Purchase the right size for you, because XL when zipped was too big around stomach area. Large was perfect and did not stick out around middle.

    This sweater is an example of the classic sweater construction and quality I remember from years ago when we were importing goods from the British Isles. I am very pleased with my purchase.

    Awesome, BUT....... - 1/5/2015

    Super sweater but does not fit right. Arms are great but the middle is way to tight. I am average weight and another size up would make the arms to long. Proportions all wrong. The quality was very nice.

    Cardigan Sweater - 1/5/2015
    By: from Upstate NY

    Nice material and well made, cut large for a good fit. Unfortunately, it had a small pull right in the front of the sweater. At this price point, I would not have expected that. Orvis swapped it out promptly at no charge to me.

    This cardigan is my Favorite. Of course my husband looks great in it and he loves it as well. What I love about it is that it is a bit more dressy when an occasion needs more than a hoody and less than a dinner jacket. Classic indeed!

Merino Wool

An ancient and universal fibre

One of the oldest and most universal fibres, 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 fibre. One square inch of merino fleece produces nearly four times as many wool fibres as other breeds of sheep. Interlaced with millions of microscopic air pockets, which act as Nature’s most effective insulator, merino fibres naturally reduce the passage of heat by trapping air between the woolen fibres. Because merino fibres 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 fibres 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.

The extremely fine, soft, and crimped nature of its fibres allow for a strong natural elasticity that enhances its high-performance qualities. Merino wool is not only warm, it is water-repellent, odor-resistant, extremely durable, and anti-static, making it ideal for a range of products from performance wear to fine wool suiting.

Fine merino wool is soft, not scratchy!

Modern technology has made it possible to sort and select only the finest merino fibres. 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.
