Icebreaker Athena Boatneck Sweater - Women's
Icebreaker crafted the Women's Athena Boatneck Sweat from superfine merino wool and gave it a casual fit and subtle detailing so you can travel in comfort and style. The merino naturally deals with odor so you don't have to worry about finding a place to do laundry and, as part of the Journey collection, this sweater has two small side pockets for essentials like keys, ID, and a phone. You'll fall in love with this breathable, itch-free top after your first long flight or jaunt through a chilly foreign locale.
- Made with the finest gauge of merino wool fabric for unprecedented softness
- Continuously knit seams for superb comfort
- Hem, neckline, and cuffs ribbing, and a boat neckline create classy lines for a timeless piece

Dry clean ONLY !!

Read the care instruction on Icebreaker website before you buy. I made the mistake of getting my hands on this soft sweater, but according the Icebreaker website, this sweater is "Dry Clean Only". Even many cashmere sweaters are "Dry Clean". The difference between the two is that you can put the "Dry Clean" items in the "hand wash" cycle in the washing machine, whereas "Dry Clean Only" means just that, send it off to the cleaners who use chemicals to make your stuff smell like consignment store. For me, it kind of really defeats the purpose of buying this sweater in lieu of cashmere - although in contrast of IB merino, much of the cashmere in the market is not ethically sourced.
Cashmere like merino!

This from Icebreaker's new BlackSheep collection- it is an ultra fine gauge fabric that feels just like cashmere. It is truly delightful to wear!
