I am very disappointed with this expensive Christmas gift. The wool pills after a few uses as if it were a cheap sweater. I have paid half the price for sweaters made of wool that does not pill. If you are going to buy chinese goods, you need some real quality inspection in place. Remember the tire failures and poisonous dog food incidents?

    Comments about Wool WWII Military Sweater:

    I'll admit that when buying online the first impression after opening the product is the most important one to me.

    The color is seldom what I was expecting or hoping for. Next comes size. The lasting (quality) effect is always a gamble I'm willing to take.

    This sweater from the opening is perfect for me. The color is just what I wanted. It rarely is as pictured .
    when buying online. If you usually wear a medium: buy the large with this sweater.

    I've read it "pills". Being ready for that I think I'll order another one of them so I'll have the same new look when this one doesn't look so good. Or maybe mine won't "pill" so bad.

    This sweater is clearly a first-class item. The handy-work is impressively attractive. It is a true asset for cold weather. Its neutral color makes it usable with most other outwear garments. It looks and feels great to wear.

        Count me as another person whose sweater has fabric pills. I was quote disappointed to see it happen, ad I would expect Nat Geo to offer better quality.

        If it wadn't for the pills it would be a wonderful sweater, tjough I'm not a big fan of the army green color. Unfortunately, the condition it is in prevents me from wearing it ouside with no jacket. At least Until I find the time to remove the pills.

Our grey-trimmed, felted lamb’s-wool sweater is soft and naturally water-resistant, both wind-resistant and breathable.

                This hearty forest green cardigan takes its inspiration from military-style Irish sweaters, often worn by volunteers who fought with the British in WWII. Although Ireland was neutral and relations with Britain were strained, thousands of men and women chose to join the Allied cause as members of the British Royal Army and Merchant Navy, or by working in British factories. Our contemporary version uses rich leather to enhance frequent wear points, ensuring years of rugged outdoor wear. Leather shoulders help keep expedition gear and luggage straps from slipping off. Front slash pockets add functionality and make this sweater an alternative to a jacket on milder winter days. Pure Irish wool, knit in Ireland.

                The walking sweater is a tradition in the British Isles that dates back more than a century. This classic outdoor style uses 100% Shetland wool fiber for its warmth and natural moisture-wicking properties. Built to withstand Scotland's vigorous, often fast-changing weather, it has suede patches at shoulders and elbows for durability and reduced wear and tear from backpacks or camera straps. Crafted in a 19th-century mill on the banks of the Teviot River, deep in the Scottish Borders.

The classic Scandinavian pattern of this blue and white cardigan is inspired by 19th-century Norwegian designs from the villages of Tromsø and Vardø.

                This cozy merino wool sweater is a virtual sampler of Irish Aran knitting patterns.

The warm wool is renowned for its extremely soft hand, providing warmth and comfort without the itch of lower-quality fibers.
