LOVE this hoodie

I had found these in a shop up in Maine last fall, and picked up two, because they seemed like they would do a good job of keeping me warm (I live in a cold drafty farmhouse), and look nicer than a plain old sweatshirt.. To make a long story short, they have turned into my two favorite go-to pullovers this winter. I love the soft fleece interior, and the tight knit sweater exterior, and while they are a nice heavyish weight, they aren't bulky, and the hood comes in handy. I have never thrown them in the dryer (I always hang my fleece items up to dry to minimize pilling, and keep them softer), so don't know how much they might actually shrink if you do. Some pilling will occur on the exterior of this item, though, from being washed repeatedly, which a sweater shaver takes care of easily enough. Which leads me to the next comment. The one "con" about these, is that the sizing is not consistent, and I found when trying them on that some mediums were as big as some larges and vice versa (meaning some mediums were really large and some large were too small to be large). While I normally wear a medium, I bought the large, since I sometimes layer and wanted a little extra room, and the medium just didn't have any wiggle room to work with. But then I saw them pop up on this site, and just order two more in large, in different colors than I already have, because I like them so much!
