About Ivanhoe Beata Vest - Boiled Wool (For Women)
Closeouts. One of winter's most favored fabrics, boiled wool, makes an appearance in Ivanhoe of Sweden's Beata vest -- sure to keep you toasty warm with its natural wind-resistant, water-repellent qualities.

The cerise is a beautiful color and fabric is great quality. I got the size S and it fit just right - I'm 5'7" and 130 lbs. The white trim at the armholes and zippers was a bit too contrasty, so anywhere the trim wasn't perfectly applied, it was very noticeable.

Ordered the Dark Blue, but what arrived was distinctly purple. Other reviewers have noted that this item runs quite large, so I opted for the smaller of two size guesses. However, this one fits quite snugly, and the armholes are high and tight – not as others have described at all. The daisy design is on the back of the shoulder instead of the upper front as pictured, so I'm guessing mine is from a different factory. Highly inconsistent overall. And I definitely didn't want purple. The wool seems very cozy and warm, so I am disappointed.

I bought this for a Christmas gift so is yet to be tried on by recipient. But the high quality and detailing match that of an Ivanhoe Boiled wool sweater that I own.
Though the color noted is dark navy, the true color is closer to in the photo, deep purple, not navy....that's why I rated 4 not 5 star.
I wish more Ivanhoe products were available!
