It's getting chilly these days; I've already brought out my machine washable lambswool sweater:
Yes! I've washed it in the machine. I hate it when people review machine washable wool items before washing them. Isn't that what's really on your mind? Does it shrink? Does it pill?
So far anyway, this thing is killerific. I washed it in a mesh laundry bag (cold water, delicate cycle, Woolite), took it out...I didn't even have to pull it back into shape, just hung it on the line to dry.
Along with, J.Crew Tissue Turtleneck in Nightfall Blue:
...which is a dark teal, this velvet skirt, only in BLACK:
...black tights, boots:
I've had the skirt almost two years, from back when Sundance Catalog marked this type of thing way down. The pic doesn't really show the pockets; it has two honking cargo pockets, side pockets, back pockets...but the virtue doesn't lie in the pockets (particularly since the sweater has them), but rather in the snuggly velvet.
For this I have a necklace I made from two kinds of heavy sterling silver chain. No pic, sorry! The outfit would be too dark otherwise. One of the chains has large hammered oval links; the other, two round links soldered together, connected with textured oval links. You can wear it different ways, because you can clip the oval-link chain anywhere.
