An attractive wool top, but takes care

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Trulyb from Asheville, NC on Friday, November 9, 2012
I am still happy I bought this wool top to wear mostly outdoors this winter. However, the first time I washed mine, the front seam opnned up and needed to be re-sewn, and this was before I even wore it! Also, I washed it in cold water, gentle cycle, and didn't machine dry it. Nonetheless, it lost a lot of it's shape from just a single washing and line drying (carefully pinned to support it suspended from the bottom. I have so many dry flat and line dry items, that I have a dedicated drying rack and a clothes line, but I really can't dry things flat. Maybe that would've allowed it to be re-shaped batter.

Even with these caveats, the top is still soft and very pretty in the purple color. I'm glad I got it! As with other wool tops, I sized up from my usual M to a L, so shrinkage is not an issue.
