Details

In 1956, the Italian city of Cortina hosted the Olympic Winter Games. As he helped his city prepare for the events, the owner of a small mountaineering outfitter was inspired by jacquard-patterned wool sweaters worn by the Norwegian competitors and began to produce an Italian version of the classic Norwegian ski pullover. Cut and sewn by hand in the mountainous Vento region of northern Italy, the design of this zip sweater was inspired by the 1956 Cortina games and the Norwegian style that became so popular in Italy. A blend of wool, cotton, and polyester gives it a touch of stretch, and the full zipper makes it easy to wear and layer.

I gifted this to my father. Everyone had to pass it around and touch it. The fabric is so comfortable and warm.

"great looking sweater"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

this is the second one I have ordered. the first looked and felt great-no itch. the fit was roomy which I liked. sadly, the first time it was washed it shrank. washed it according to directions, hand wash, cold water, dried flat. this one will go to the dry cleaners. if it shrinks after dry cleaning I will post a down graded review. just a caution to readers of this.

"good cold weather sweater"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

this is a very heavy, well-made sweater. with a medium weight jacket it will keep me warm in temps down in the twenties. did not shrink upon washing. only reason i did not rate it five stars was it is very itchy. i would recommend wearing it only over a long sleeved shirt.
