I recently purchased a few of these from BR and really do like them. My only concern is they are very thin and not sure how long they will last. I would like to purchase more but I'd like to know they are going to last 2 years or so, if not I'd just assume buy the merino wool which is what I normally get.

I like silk/cashmere blend sweaters. The last time depends on how you care for the sweaters.

I'm curious to know whether they last and how to take care of them...

It's mostly silk? Then probably it should be hand-washed with a special cleaner such as Silk Wash.
