My Favorite Alpaca Crew {a brief review & commentary}

Top to bottom:  bright pink {sold out} | almond | mustard

This alpaca crew checks all the “perfect sweater” boxes.   So soft.  Slightly oversized.  Looks fabulous with everything.  Beautiful colors.  I adore my three so much that I plan to purchase another color this winter if Everlane restocks, or makes some new shades.  Given my level of devotion to this ever-so-cozy knit, I thought it was only fair that I share some thoughts about it with you all.

In my experience, these sweaters get even softer as they are laundered more.  I use the laundress wool & cashmere shampoo, and then simply toss into my washer (inside a mesh laundry bag to prevent snags) on the hand wash wool COLD setting.  Then I always lay them flat to dry.  All three of mine have held up beautifully with appropriate TLC.  My pink one, I’ve had for two winters, and the almond & mustard ones I purchased last winter.  They have all been washed multiple times.

I purchased size medium to allow for minor shrinkage with first washing (normal with wool, cashmere, alpaca).  They were a little big before washing but now they are a perfect boyfriend fit!  My issue is always with sleeve length… sleeves are often not long enough unless I buy mens… but these are perfect in size medium!

One thing that is definitely worth mentioning (in the spirit of complete honesty) is that I would not wear this sweater if you are hanging at home with your doggies & kitty cats.  This is something I do not do…ever.   I assure you, the sweater would get snagged.  At the same time, though, the Everlane alpaca crew is epic in terms of comfort, plushness, quality and versatility.  Like a classic cashmere crew, this is one of those pieces you can throw on with denim, trousers, a skirt, over a slip dress… even with chic lounge pants!

My rules of thumb are launder with care, and keep away from the paws!
