This is not a very open weave, but it is not a very tight weave either. If you look closely at the weaving, there is an interesting pattern that does not show up in the photos. This is a perfect Spring and Fall sweater. This is possibly the only Raffi sweater on STP that is actually made in Italy (not China) and it shows in the workmanship and the great color. One caution about the sizing, though. My usual size in sweaters (even from Europe) was way too big in this sweater, and I had to return it and get the next size down, which fits me perfectly. Most often, clothing from Europe runs a bit small, but this is a rare exception. This sweater runs very large.
