Carve Designs Durango Sweater - UPF 50+, Merino Wool (For Women)
Closeouts. Carve Designs' Durango sweater is a fun cross between a snuggly sweater and a cool bomber jacket with a rib-knit hem and cuffs. Crafted from pure merino wool with a bit of padding for extra warmth, it's a cool-weather favorite for cozy-casual style.
Reviewed by SJS from NYC on Saturday, October 29, 2016This runs quite small. I'm a size 2 (5'7", 125 pounds, small-busted) and typically wear an XS or small in sweaters. I ordered a small in this, and it's very snug. I can barely get my arms through the sleeves with just a long-sleeved knit shirt underneath, and it's barely big enough in the chest. Because it's slightly padded, it has an unflattering effect. If it shrinks at all, I'll be unable to get it on at all.
I'm debating whether to exchange it for a medium or just return it; I love the idea of the sweater, as well as the fact that it's all merino wool, but it has a slight lifevest-like appearance in the chest and shoulders because of the padding. The neckline could be better designed; I think it cries out for a thicker or wider collar.
