Excellent lightweight sweater

I would call merino a "scratch-less" wool. Acrylic is light and also quite comfortable. Put 'em together, and the blend feels as smooth and comfortable as knit silk. (Is there such a thing?)
The sweater doesn't offer much in the way of warmth or insulation, but it looks and feels good. Ideal to ward off the breeze on a cool spring, summer, or autumn evening.
I don't know what other colors are available, but the "ebony heather" is sort of a small purple/black/cream houndstooth pattern. I got a couple compliments.
