The Merino Wool is a beautiful fabrication. A very fine knit with a gloss of quality.
Vassalli Merino is 100% Merino. Cold machine wash and lay flat to dry. I like to iron or steam on the inside to restore the fabric gloss before wearing after each wash.
Such a great cut, it has amazing shape without being clingy with two slit pockets at the front and a slightly dropped hem at the back.
The hood sits quite flat so it looks just like a collar from the front...could be the cleverness of the cut or it could be the divine fineness of the Merino fabrication.
