Great sweater, but it runs a wee bit small. I ordered one in a larger size and had to alter it, but when I went down a size it was just snug, so I will be returning it. The main thing - when it is snug, the neck is extremely uncomfortable.....closing the zip makes it really tight, and open the edges are pokey, so go a size up if you order this. Also, the first one I ordered was great quality - I altered it and it is just perfect, but the next one, the yellow one, seems to be lighter weight material, and the yellow looks less bright and more dingy than in the photos, not a huge deal, but something to keep in mind.

I have at least 8 Neve sweaters in my closet and I love each one. This one I have to say I am disappointed with. The fit is great, the colors are wonderful, the workmanship is solid too. What is the issue? It pilled during my first wearing, on the sides and front. I think it is due to the fact that this is not a 100% merino wool sweater like the others I own. The majority is poly. They call it the "performance" knit, but I wonder if it is just a way to cust costs. I will keep as I can shave off the pills and the price was fantastic, but beware.

This one just isn't up to Neve's usually high standards. After wearing it only twice (I got the black and white), I discovered that the sweater is covered with pilling. Especially under the arms, on the white stripes. It looks terrible.
The fabric is 80 percent polyester by the way - only 20 percent merino.
