Notched Collar Boiled Wool Jacket
Excellent and so versatile
I like the versatiity and comfort. This is the first boiled wool item i've
bought, and it's a bit difficult for me right now to handle the dry cleaning,
but the usefulness and weight fit into so many situations and weather
condiitons that I'll work around that. Will be likely to add boiled wool
items to my wardrobe. The fit is fine.

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.
