    @MJF9 I don’t think Shetland wool is itchy - I can wear any good Shetland knit next to skin. It feels a bit coarser than merino and certainly not as soft as cashmere but it’s an impossible scenario because everyone reacts differently to different wools (I find alpaca less comfortable), and you’ve already got a subconscious prejudice having a negative memory … that’s something which will have an effect like it or not. But it’s important to recognise all wools come in different qualities - you’ll no doubt have heard of ‘superfine’ merino or similar. That’s just describing the thickness of the fibre and even Shetland come in different qualities from ‘fine’, ‘medium’ etc. with fine wools generally being the softest and easiest to wear.

    Thanks John, but they’re easier to find than you think

    Maybe that’ll be a belt for me - perhaps with that vintage Japanese indigo cloth

    Aye, bought the Olive version last year - I love it … it’s not quite at the levels of my cardi, but I get to see quite a few Shetland wool sweaters and it’s better than any I’ve seen

    Just buy it - you know you want to (Navy please) … otherwise use the money you’ve saved to get something to hold up your S601s

    @Broark get the Size L … that way when you don’t wear it as much then it will be useful to me
  8. ^ only 65 too … they were on my favourite bands from the late 70s

    Beach cloth is fairly warm but it’s big advantage is that it’s fairly windproof and resists rain really well given it’s all natural fibre

    Replacement hip-ster at his age …

    Fortunately that’s a man in his 30s - gets you away from suspicion since you are much older than that

    It’s amazing the destruction you can cause with everyday household ingredients. That stem looks the bollocks now
