Newer isn't always better

Columbia has very reasonably priced fleece jackets, and I can count on them fitting. I gave one as a gift to my sister, who loved it, and ordered some for myself to replace some old ones that I wore constantly. I ordered a medium, which is a little large on me, because a small was slightly irritating at times. Even over a turtle neck, though, the new one was itchy, to the point that I had to take it off - I have touchy skin, so this may be unique to me, although I don't remember this from the earliest one. I'm hoping a wash will settle down whatever is causing this! The new jackets don't seem quite as heavy as my old black one, but are similar to a more recent one that I purchased...regardless, they are warm, and really help in my chilly house...and I love the colors!
