I have been looking for a long time for a "normal" Navy crew neck sweater. I wanted it to be made of wool, and of a fairly hefty weight, not as heavy as my Guernsey, but not as light as my lambswool or Shetland. And I wanted it to be plain, with wide ribbing at the cuffs and sweep.
I found exactly for what I have been looking with this Fisherman's Crew from Wool Overs. Made of British Wool, it is wonderfully (and surprisingly) soft, heavy enough and just the right shade of a bright Navy. It even has somewhat of a sheen.
|Remarkably, it is currently sale priced at 2 for $78.00 and I took advantage of their earlier free shipping offer to the US.|
|I liked it so much that I immediately ordered more for my family, all in Navy. The sizing is unisex.|
|The Owls Head General Store, according to the Food Channel, has the best hamburgers in Maine.|
|Owls Head also has a very pretty working harbor. I made many trips here in my youth to re-supply mariner trips.|
|It is one of my favorite places. (And its Transportation Museum is like no other. But that is for a later post.)|
