    Disappointed - 2/19/2015
    By: from Hastings on Hudson NY

    The material and look were very nice. But the large size was very broad in shoulders and therefore long in the sleeves but tight in the waist (I have a 44 chest and 36 waist).

    Warmth and Substance Without Bulk - 2/10/2015
    By: from Centrally isolated in New Hampshire

    Disclaimer: I am a merino wool fanatic. Winter, summer and in between it is my first choice material, on the skin, mid layer and outside. This is a clean lined, dense knit, very comfortable sweater. It is soft, drapes nicely while holding its shape and adjusts to temperature variations with the zippered front. Simple and elegant. A keeper, a favorite.

    I have another one that I purchased many, many years ago. This prompted me to try another one. This sweater/cardigan is heavy, warm, and comfortable. Thank you Orvis.

    Great product - 2/4/2015
    By: from Sunny California

    A very well made good looking sweater. However the length of the product was to short for me to wear, especially considering the price. The overall sweater in all aspect was excellent with this one exception. The sweater has been returned, since they do make it in a tall size

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.
