Great Features - Well Made - No Itch

I ordered both size L & XL in the green clover color. Color is great - a bit darker in person than pics of this sweatshirt at various places online. I kept the XL as it fit better/more relaxed, with room for any shrinkage. The XL sleeves are longer & I think possibly a bit longer overall than the large. Love the snaps in front which makes this a versatile top. It is lightweight, but with the 3% wool, it curbs the chill & feels warm. I live in So Calif & will wear this often, plus will take it with me on camping trips. Very comfy, soft, no itch. The nylon content allows the sleeves to be pulled up comfortably. I do not expect it to stretch out. I plan to wash in a mesh laundry bag with a wool wash & slightly dry on low to fluff it up & then hang or lay out to finish drying. In my opinion the sweatshirt might be too short for taller gals in a size less than XL or for anyone with long arms(unless you stretched the arms a bit). I'm 5'6", average arms. The XL covers half my bum & the sleeves comfortably cover over part of my hands.
