Average Newari by Icelandic Design Review (based on 56 reviews)
Reviewed by WCK007 from New Jersey on Thursday, September 19, 2013The picture suggests a much more ample fit than the vest I received, as if the hand knitters in Nepal were skimping on wool!
Reviewed by Rustic Comfort from Pacific Northwest on Wednesday, December 19, 2012Was attracted to the look but have found the vest to be incredibly useful. It is extremely warm. I wear it everywhere. It is comfortable enough for around the house (even to bed!) and also looks so well made it can be worn to a decent restaurant. It has minor irregularities as the other reviewer said. I think it gives it a more authentically hand crafted look (ex: mine has a shorter neck closure string then the other side and no one seems to have noticed even my scrutinizing husband.) Speaking of the neck closure, it is very very useful here in the Pacific Northwest winter. I am between a small and extra small and the "S/M" is a little loose (kinda wish it were more fitted, but they didn't have extra small.) Still, it's worth owning for its general overall use.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by anne from ajax,on on Wednesday, March 28, 2012This is a very stylish knit vest. Its great for layering. You can tell that it is handknit.
