1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    a little tight on the shoulders so struggling to layer...considering selling on. so damn nice though.

    does one go for style over comfort?

    For those who have neither, use the wool cycle on your washing machine, and put your knits in a delicates bag. Only use the cold wash, and even with the delicates bag, only a light spin cycle. The 2 things that you want to avoid are unwanted shape distortion of the garment, and fuzzing of the wool.\ . Using a good wool shampoo should mitigate any color loss, as long as you have a decemt knit.

    Wool felt is great though, supremely comfortable and hard wearing. You just need to get sweaters 4 sizes too big to account for shrinkage and let the machine do its magic.

    ^ does the same hold true for wool felt trousers?
    I have 2 pairs on the way, sized up 1 for both. Only exp I have with wool felt is a Raeburn bomber which I obv never washed.

    No, felt is what regular wool turns into when you hot wash on high speed spin cycle(s) (so the opposite of what you're supposed to do with wool), it shrinks and wool fibers become more densely tangled. But once the wool is felted you wash it the exact same way as you would other wool garments. No shrinking no problems.

    Most important thing to remember: never ever wear a light colored mohair sweater with dark colored pants/outerwear and vice versa.
