Oprah said recently, when she was giving away gifts (copious amounts of extravagant gifts that I sat and drooled over) (Did you SEE the patent leather Coach satchel?!?!?) in her final "Favorite Things” giveaway, that she knows we shouldn’t love things, but..well, we still do. We love pretty things and fancy things and comfy things, because, they make us feel good—and pretty, or fancy, or comfortable. On that note, I must tell you that there’s just something about Merino wool.
I have never bought a merino wool sweater that I haven’t ended up L.O.V.I.N.G. To start with, it’s wool without the itch. It has just the right cling while giving just the right drape. The black is a true, deep black that doesn't fade. It’s warm without being bulky. It keeps it shape and doesn’t pill.
I could go on, but you get the point. I [heart] Merino wool. Sweaters in particular.
