It's surely comfortable, but will it wear well? Also -- when you suggest washing it with a "gentle shampoo" -- do you literally mean SHAMPOO? Like what I'd use in my hair?
I think the consensus (do a search though) was that Harrison stuff was pretty low quality and it would be better to get something like J. Crew on discount or RL Polo on ebay.
And I use Woolite on cashmere with steaming in between. You could probably use baby shampoo, but most hair shampoos have foaming ingredients and are actually somewhat harsh. There's also Forever New which is supposed to be ultra gentle, but I don't care enough to go find it and buy it.
