How does it wear? Noro Cash Iroha

Garment: Hourglass sweater

At time of completion, this photo is in very bright light, the jumper is actually darker than this.

Fibre: Silk, Wool, Cashmere and Nylon

Date completed:Oct 2008

Tension: knitted at the recommended tension

Stitch: Stocking stitch

Washing: Handwashed, rolled in towels and dried flat.

Worn: Frequently  during Autumn, Winter and Spring.

Result:

This jumper is worn a lot.  It has faded over the years and started to show its age with pilling on the inside of the sleeves and down the sides.  The jumper has retained its shape and size well.  It is soft enough to wear without a t shirt underneath.
