Nice sweater

Reviewed by ploeg from Central NJ on Thursday, February 12, 2015
This is a very nice sweater: the fabric is soft and non-itchy, and the colors are bright. It's not a heavy fabric, but it's heavy enough that I wouldn't trust the sweater in a washing machine. Probably best to soak this sweater in a bucket with mild detergent when necessary.

Just to set expectations, there's double fabric in the neck for warmth. The colors of the inner layer of the neck are patterned after the Norwegian flag (indigo blue cross etched in white, with the vertical part offset to the hoist side). In pictures on the Internet where you can see this pattern, the vertical part of the cross is offset to the wearer's right side (that is, the left side as you're looking at it from the front). However, on the actual sweater, the vertical part of the cross is offset to the wearer's left side. If you think about it, it makes sense to have this pattern as it is. You can't see the vertical part of the cross when the neck is turned up. When the neck is turned down, you can see the vertical part of the cross only from the back, and when viewed from the back, the vertical part of the cross is on the viewer's left side, as one would expect. The pattern in the neck isn't wrong, it just isn't as shown in pictures on other websites.
