Unlike most reviewers, I am not at all happy with this sweater. I guess I expected it to wash up like my other RL sweaters of similar style. It did not. After two hand washings, the fibers no longer had the same quality as the sweater when new. I can't find the words to describe it, not piling, not fraying, but not "sharp" as when new. As my other RL sweaters got old, I tossed them into the washing machine and dryer. I have a white one I wash that way after one or two wearings and guess what? It looks like new each time and I've washed it God know how many times! Dozens. My conclusion is the fibers in this sweater are inferior to those in my other sweaters. I'm sad. I feel I've thrown my money away.
Unfortunately I have noticed the reduction in quality in other brands as well. It is probably to keep the price down. I would rather the price be increased to cover the cost of rising fiber costs. But that's just me. I'm not old but old enough to remember the good old days.
