I love this sweater. I saw it in the window of H&M and with a giant sign next to it that read $9.95, I knew I had to have it (no such thing as too many sweaters when it's the dead of winter in October). I didn't even try it on. Had I done that, I would have realized the itch-factor. I think the problem can be solved by a tight tee or a tank underneath but nonetheless it's a gorgeous chunky, cream sweater that's great for fall. I mean winter.
