itchy but a pretty casual wear cardigan

As a Scandianvian I know the Ivanhoe sweaters and cardigans well, they always have fresh designs and laid back styles. This is a blend wool cardigan ( wool, lambswool, 10% polyamid) which means it is not very soft and may be itchy as well. I ordered a large which was way too large for me, I am 173 cm, slim and usually wear 38-40 European. Evidently American Large is 42 European, oh well, I decided to keep it since I was going to wear a turtleneck underneath anyway. In a cold climate this is a good warm layer, the hood felt a bit small. Compared to Dale of Norway sweaters ivanhoes are more casual, more affordable, and bigger in sizes. but in the end I have always been satisfied with their quality, I will keep on adding them to my wardrobe. I have Astrid cardigan in brown as well, I like that one better, this one is somehow Chrismassy. Golfers note; Ivanhoe has a fantastic line for female golfers, the blouses are simply amazing, stretchy , stylish, wash well, and are almost ironing free! Check those out!
