Every Fall/Winter I seem to have sweater of the season. Last year it was my gray Everlane cashmere crew neck. This year it's this Grana chunky rib knit sweater in merino wool. You know I'm already in love with Grana's merino wool (review of Grana merino wool cardigan and merino wool mock neck), but I have to say this is their best merino wool product yet. And that's because this sweater is super thick and waffle knit, but they still use their super smooth and soft wool fibers. There is 0% itch here. I've been wearing it alone (and it's perfect for those high 50 to 60 degree weather) or under my Everlane anorak when it's raining or a bit chillier (that anorak is a beast at keeping in the warmth even though it's super thin). (I recently just posted a pic on instagram of this combo-- I really love the similarity in color but difference in textures). My outfits are almost boring because I've just been throwing this sweater on almost every day. But even with almost constant wear, there has been zero pilling. It's some kind of amazing magic lol.
As for sizing, I went with my usual rule of thumb for Grana: if it says "boyfriend" I get a small (if it doesn't I get a medium). But you can also check their fit finder since they usually take thorough measurements of each garment (scroll down to the bottom of the pop out). Also like almost all of Grana's sweaters, this one is also fairly long so I wear it with the bottom hem folded over like in the pictures above.
Anyway here are several more outfits with this sweater. The one on the right is for the the review of Grana's cashmere joggers (spoiler: which are better than Everlane's cashmere sweatpants). See, I have been pairing this sweater with almost everything.
