for anyone still hesitant about biting the bullet:
I received my roll neck from Norse store today. it's a 90/10 merino/cashmere mix.
im 6'1" with a 39 inch chest and the fit is nice and pretty slim though the length was a little short.
that being said, the sweater is tightly knit and not scratchy in the slightest.
very warm and sumptuously soft.
hope this helps
update: after a week if reasonable wear, the sweater has shown a decent amount of pilling. true, I have been wearing it pretty regularly to battle the cold but still a little dissapointing
