Notched Collar Boiled Wool Jacket
Love boiled wool!
The jacket needed a good pressing and de-fuzzing, but it fits well and is a dressier substitute for a sweater. It is not winter coat weight but indoor or spring weight. I have a blue one and pinkish one already, but the black fills a need in my wardrobe. I buy most things on sale, since I was raised during the Depression and also raised four children on one income.

Warm and dressy
Love this jacket. It is warm and just right for a day that isn't really cold but not warm enough for just sweater. Slightly scratchy, but I didn't have a problem with it.

This boiled wool pills easily
I am disappointed in the quality of this item. I have had it for a very short time, and noticed the fabric pills immediately. It appears to be slightly thinner fabric, when contrasted with a boiled-wool blazer I purchased approximately one year ago from Appleseeds. Admittedly, this new blazer fits well and is warm. Having received a higher-quality blazer from the same merchant in the recent past, I was hoping to receive an similar-quality product. I would be willing to pay a somewhat higher price if the quality was better.
