Janan wrote a review of Peak Performance Anni Crew Sweater - Women's on March 15, 2012
Up to ten years a go it was possible to walk into ordinary stores like the Gap or the American Eagle, and buy a 100% lambswool sweater. Although not fancy purchases, they were thick enough and durable enough to last a few winters, at which point, I would "demote" them to ski sweaters.
Since then, the 5-cent worth polyester products successfully claimed their unrightful place in the market, and the wool is gone. So, that's the one plus that this sweater has. It's a real wool sweater. If you wash it in hot water or do a heavy load, it will felt and shrink. Real, traditional wool. It also has a pretty pattern.
Here is the negative - who would design a thick, winter sweater with a neck so wide open? This is so outlandishly contradictory to the purpose. My belly get's cold, but my cheat doesn't? Also, the upper arms are several sizes larger than the lower parts of the sweater. Imagine trying to slip into a gorilla skin. It won't fit right. Maybe they thought you'd want to layer - only your upper arms! The sweater is also short for its width. Bottom line, it's not flattering.
I'm not giving it two stars, because I'm keeping the sweater - after all that I have said... If you don't want to pay $300, it's near to impossible to find wool sweaters of this kind. I'm not talking about the paper thin merino fashion. So, for better or worse, I'm keeping mine. Before I received the sweater in the mail, I was planning on buying the other color as well, but I won't.
