SNS Herning- fits? - Page 182

post #2716 of 4981

In the everlane thread they were commenting that good cashmere and wool take years to become soft.  That stuff that is soft at first has been enzyme treated, and therefore pills more

Can someone verify?

I am not a textile expert but I have worked indirectly w/ fabric vendors and do really like sweaters. Also comparing cashmere to wool is not 1::1.

I will say that it does not take years for "good wool" to get soft. The hairs that are used for cashmere come from a specific part of the animal; it may be that it takes longer for that hair to grow or grow back, thus the really good cashmere is more expensive. I'm not totally sure on that one. But that is not the case at all for wool.

And nothing about any wool that SNS uses is like cashmere at all. As anyone who owns the pieces knows, none of the heavy pieces are "itchy" but they are stout and they are not fine gauge knits that look dressy, nor are they all bunny soft and snuggly.

The lighter models like the Version/Ideal etc. can feel very like finer merinos (and perhaps some are merino? I have one and don't actually know) but they are not soft like cashmere.

If you want super soft hand merino (or cashmere) knits, there are plenty of great options. These are not them.

If I end up paying customs fine, but whatever, price on the Paragon is pretty decent and I'll charge back if they give me crap.

Gravity Pope had a whack of Starks when I was in there last (about 3 weeks ago though).

In case you guys care, there are Starks at www,shelta.eu for 139 Eu, not including the VAT discount, nor the 30 Eu shipping, wich essentially cancel out. This is about $186, which is probably about as good as you are going to get, if you know your size. I just picked up the Stark in the army green.

eseanyang,

If you have a moment, thank you for answering:
is that the new sizing or the old sizing? What is your chest measurement?

That didn't last. Missed the chance to cop my size...
