    So I have a fisherman and a Stark that were a bit too big for me.

    I decided to try and shrink them a bit by doing a hot soak and a quick tumbledry.

    I hot soaked them with a tiny bit of woolite dark for about 30 minutes. I then threw them in the dryer for about 15 minutes. I then laid them flat to dry.

    The fisherman is probably a full 1 to 2" shorter than it was before I did this, in both the length and the sleeves. The Stark didn't have as much of a shortening effect, but it did get a bit slimmer.

    This process made my house smell like a wet sheep, but it worked pretty well, particularly on the fisherman.

    [​IMG] How much piling was there? If any? I just got a Stark and would love for it to fit better than it does now; too big in the the waist and too long in the sleeves.

    There is a bit of piling. I am not worried about it as I planned to have these sweaters a while and beat them up a bit. I am guessing it may have beat them up a bit to put them in the dryer. The hand wash dry flat method is what they suggest for cleaning. Maybe worth doing that if you want to see what will happen. The water I used was not as hot as I would use to shrink denim, but relatively hot.

    And, like I said, the Stark didn't shrink as much in length as the fisherman did, which seems kind of counterintuitive because of how much cabling is on the stark. Results may vary, I guess.

    hey guys, which is the right size for a 5'5" and 145 lbs guy that wants to buy a stark on line? my pit to pit is 39 if it helps. I read that sns herning are quite long in torso and on sleeves so i'm afraid to buy something i don't like when i wear it. On tres bien shop on line site the model Sune, 6 ft tall, wears a medium (the stark fits on him like i would like to wear it) so i should take a xs?
    can you guys help me?

    Dodo, I have an XS in the Stark and some other SNS cardigan and both are ridiculously long on me at 5'8. I'd try something on first before buying, it may be way longer than you like.

    Stark is meant to be a long cardigan, avoid if this is not what you're looking for plus you sound big for your height so a double avoid.

    Sea blue? Sometimes I feel like switching out the buttons to something less contrasty yet other times (your pic) they look great.

    Does anybody in the US stock the indigo stark? I've looked around and haven't seen it anywhere.

    Mr Porter has it in what looks like indigo melange. They list the color as "navy blue", but inspecting the pics on their site, it looks like a dark dark melange blue. I've ordered one, and I can post my impressions on the color if you want.

    Really? I'm the same height as you and my Small is just fine length-wise. Also, like Jet said- its meant to be a longer cardigan.... its not supposed to hit at your belt. That said some of the SNS crew neck pullovers I've seen have been insanely long...like 28in for a small.

    Was eyeing the black melange as a versatile basic color, but now I'm drawn towards the maroon for some reason.

    I'm 5'11" and wear the M, hits a couple inches longer than a normal cardigan would and I love that about it but I don't know of anything else except maybe some handknits like inverallan that would be more in line with what you're looking for. Can't wait to start wearing mine again actually.

    I can wear a 50 in knits but I don't like how perfect they fit so the 52 gives me a bit of slouch.

    Medium stark fits me perfect maybe you're a baboon?
