merino wool linen jersey
I like this shirt a lot. I'm looking to get another one with this blend. The blend of linen and wool feels softer than the morgan fabric. The only issue is the color, I like it a lot, but I've read other reviews and experienced myself that if I wash it with any other color outside of white, the oatmeal color changes a little. I think it got a little darker after a wash (with white t shirts and white towels) comapred to when I received it. Overall, I like the quality and I would buy another shirt.
This wool linen fabric is incredible! It's light weight, drape-y, breathable, insulating. I can tell an immediate difference when I change to a different shirt. Really wishing there was a 100 Days challenge just for t-shirts.
The scoop is perfect for me, it's low enough to display decolletage, but not cleavage.
The shirts sit wonderfully on my shoulders, which means the whole garment hangs well off of my frame.
The drape is at that perfect point where I can wear the garment tucked, un-tucked, or French tucked, so no weird ballooning.
Dries quickly if hand-washed in the sink, great for travel!
The linen addition adds heathering to the merino fabric, adding depth and dimension to the overall look.
Like any scoop neck, if I bend over, it's easy to see down my shirt.
Looser fitting sleeves means they bunch a little weirdly under a closer fitting cardigans or blazers.
Personal pet peeve, I think the fabric is cut on the bias which means over time the side seams could end up somewhere near my center line.
The construction and fit of this top are great, it's the fabric I'm not completely sold on. Linen blends can be scratchy and lean quite casual, and all of that is true here. I like the top, and will be keeping it, but it will be reserved for summer and for hanging out at home. It's not something I feel I could dress up at all, just due to the nubbled, slubby texture and tone of the fabric. Again, not a bad thing, I guess I'm just comparing it to my other merino scoop neck, which I can wear easily to work.
I'm so happy that this sustainable wool option exists. I prefer a raglan (diagonal) shoulder, and I would love for this shirt to be longer, but it works for a kick-around-the-house and run some errands kind of day.
I love this top! The scoop neck isn't too low and the material is light but not flimsy. I've worn it several times without washing and it doesn't smell or wrinkle. I will definitely order more but I'd love to see more color options!
