Information 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.

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!

Saw this nice, "cheery" two tone (lime/neon green) vest with fully embroidered white daisy on left shoulder available in womens small size and bought it for my wife.... What I got was a full lime green vest with a simple outline of a daisy, a bit larger than typical small... blah... What you see is not always what you'll get. The hand pockets are made from a light weight canvas material... hope they last. Not sure why I'Hoe didn't go with more substantial material seeing that this is where you're gonna stuff lots of things (phone, keys, coins, etc. besides your hands. Other than that, the boiled wool fabric appears to be adequate, yet my wife wears it and hasn't mentioned anything re: warmth, wind, and water resistance. I kinda still like it, but am irked.
