    In this spirit, might I mention Inverallan - I have a jumper and some cardigans of theirs, which are very warm and comfortable indeed. They are definitely on the heavy cable-knit end of things, you would not want to wear them under a sports coat, but perfect for sitting around an unheated house.

    In this vein, Inis Meain also look interesting but I have no experience of them as yet.

    I didn't even know you could get cardis like that any more... "knitted in the Scottish Borders" not China ... nice!

    I'm still on the fence but was thinking of kopping this:

    If it had buttons instead of the zipper it would have been an instakop.

    I have reported you to the SF authority for immediate sanction.

    ACRYLIC? WTF? :facepalm:

    1)

    2) I have a chunky cable knit navy shawl collar cardigan from Scotch and Soda that I picked up last winter that does well by me. It's warm enough to wear as outerwear for nearly all of the winter in Portland, OR. It looks like this:

    Wow, did you even read my post? My sweater is a cardigan, not a turtleneck, and I wasn't offering to sell it to you. I was recommending that you monitor the STP website for great deals on great merchandise. Oh well, I'm sure someone with $250 to spend on a great sweater will find the recommendation useful. Be sure to let us know how the JCrew sweater works out for you.

    The JCrew Cardigan I bought has been a homerun.
    At $250, it was very expensive, but I am getting a ton of use from it, and winter has barely started.

    The fit is slim and tailored, as pictured. Sleeves are also quite tapered.
    I wear it at work, out of work, and when lounging at home.
    I have a beater cardigan from BR that takes the brunt of use at home, however.
    I don't want the cashmere to pill prematurely.

    Is this a cognitive dissonance thread?
