I found that this sweater ran very small in the medium, so I ordered a large. It had a very strong and unpleasant "barn" smell, so I decided to wash it. The tag said hand wash in warm water. I decided NOT to use warm, but hand washed it in woolite in cold water. The sweater shrank to the point where it would fit a six-year old! The smell did indeed wash away. This tells me that the wool was never properly processed before this sweater was knit. Back it goes, sadly. The blue was lovely.
