Nice sweater, warm and great price

Great looking wool sweater, in the style of an Irish fisherman's sweater, though it's labeled "English wool sweater." This is my second purchase. I bought this one in grey, and I have one that is several years old, bought from [@]. They fit the same, though they feel different. The wool in the older, ecru, is itchier and thicker; whereas the wool in the grey sweater is finer, less itchy, less dense. I don't know if the manufacturer changed the way it makes the sweater, or if this is a function of the color. Either way, it's a great sweater. Right out of the packaging, it has a slight wool smell. Not terrible, but I'm hoping it goes away after a while. Also, in terms of sizing, it runs a little large and long. I typically wear an XL, but a L in this is almost perfect. I am 6'4", 215 lbs and typically wear a 16.5/36 dress shirt.
