Everlane ReviewI had some store credit, so I went ahead and splurged on Everlane's Ribbed Wool-Cashmere Crew in Charcoal. I liked the deep side slits that imply a cropped fit without sacrificing warmth around my midsection. It's difficult to wear a standard crew neck sweater with dresses, so I was hoping this one would provide the right amount of swingy-ness to look intentional layered over dresses this Dressember.
The Verdict?I like it a lot! In fact, I might like it more than the standard Cashmere. It's a very thick, dense wool that keeps out cold wind and keeps me toasty warm. So far, the quality seems good and I'm not noticing any pilling.
As with all my sweaters, I plan on washing very sparingly, if at all, to ensure that it doesn't stretch or shrink.
I ordered my standard size small in this and the fit is perfect. I'm a sucker for dark gray, too, so the color suits my wardrobe well. If they had a light blue version, similar to the one from Siizu, I would have considered that, too.
The Ribbed Wool-Cashmere Crew retails for $98 and is made in Everlane's Fujian, China factory, which you can learn more about here. I do wish that Everlane would be transparent about their textiles sourcing, but I know several people have asked them about this directly, so hopefully they will start listening.
