    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.

    Chinese acrylic as well...not SF approved, even if it is PRL.

    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?
