Like a squirrel laying in nuts for a long winter, I'm checking my cashmere supply.
Left, my first order from the Pure site, a new style; what sold it was this copy: "...gentle gathers to enhance the flatter-chested and flatter the larger-chested, three-quarter length sleeves and deep ribbed hem and cuffs".
The "larger-chested" would be me and hmm, I'd be leaving that belt off. When it arrived, the sweater was oddly larger across the back than front. (Right, I know about breasts- but even allowing for the differential, it gapped in back, rippling between my shoulder blades.)
The colour was a calm bay green, as shown, a quiet, classic pretty enough colour, but not appealing to me. It looks dull against black; and I rarely wear brown on the bottom. Can't say if it's pill-prone, but it was well-finished.
Pure is cheaper than Eric Bompard, whose current catalog ignites impure thoughts that I entertain daily. Some of you have scolded me for this link, but if you love cashmere, here is your goat wool nirvana.
I'd rather pay more for the lush EB sweater coat top, since I'll be wearing it for years.
