Does anyone know anything about where this wool is sourced from? It is supposed to be Italian... As anyone noticed recently that almost all the major retailers in North America--Nordstroms, Lord and Taylor, Holt Renfrew in Canada, etc....are flooding the market with merino wool sweater styles...all proudly showing the Made in Italy tag, and proudly claiming Zegna Baruffa Italian merino wool....with full retail price of $70-80....and on sale now for $25? Except for these things shed like crazy, similar to the Made in China cashmere crap.... Something is not right...but the Made in Italy tag?!?! Can anyone familiar with the industry enlighten me? Then there's this: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-11622809

Hmm, I have one of those from Lord & Taylor and think it's a great value.
