Explain Me This

We gathered all our favorite yarns—super kid mohair, angora, alpaca and wool—and combined them to create this colorful take on graphic Peruvian patterns. For added luxury, the sweater is completely handknit, which gives it a unique pronounced texture and makes it truly one of a kind.
  • Wool/alpaca/acrylic in a 3-gauge knit.
  • Long sleeves.
  • Rib trim at neck, cuffs and hem.
  • Hits below hip.
  • Dry clean.
  • Import.
One of our designers saw this electric tweed at Italy's storied Lanificio Campore mill (known for its world-class woolen fabrics) and knew it was perfect for us—after all, we do have a thing for color (the brighter the better). We love the pom-pom yarns that are woven into the tweed to give it a touch of texture.
  • Polyamide/cotton/poly.
  • Sits at waist.
  • 23 1/2" long.
  • Back zip with hook-and-eye closure.
  • Lined.
  • Dry clean.
  • Import.
Why isn't there better correlation between the highlighted things?

    1. There was a time when I didn't have to check their ingredients, I could count on it being good stuff.

  4. Irritating! That happened to me this winter. I bought a scarf at Factory and the item description was "Wool Scarf." The material? 100% acrylic. Called CS and asked for a refund including shipping for deceptive selling practices.

    1. I don't think there's a Factory scarf out of natural material, I don't even look at them anymore. That's awful ... a wool scarf out of acrylic!
