Gets even softer over time

My biggest concern with the sweater was my eczema. I usually try to avoid any type of materials that are really itchy because it really irritates my eczema. It’s been this way throughout my whole life, so I haven't really owned any wool clothing. Most of the things that I own are cotton, bamboo, Tencel, and things like that. This can be annoying and limiting sometimes because having to layer and layer and layer in the cold weather isn’t the best.

In the reviews, everyone kept talking about how soft this sweater was, so I thought if it's soft and it's not like other wools then just maybe it'll work for me. Overall, it worked. I would say that in some of the areas that I have eczema, like my arms, it's a little itchy but I know that once you wash it, it gets softer. I'm looking forward to seeing if it gets even softer over time.

Beyond the feel, the benefits of the sweater are multi-fold because it helps you be more conscious and be more sustainable. This sweater helps limit stress around like trying to find clothes and deciding what outfit to wear now. It also limits laundry, which is a big bonus. I would definitely recommend this sweater to folks who are looking to invest in nice quality products that last, are breathable, and are just good for the environment in general.

Ventilation in the armpits

Love the color. It's nice and soft. I like the ventilation in the armpits, probably a feature not too many people know about. It's super nice and fits me really well.

Felt like I was Chris Evans

I've been wearing this sweater for a week. It's not only beautiful, but it's also comfortable. It gets the job done. I've worn it every day. At first, it was a little tight. I felt like I was Chris Evans in The Avengers... but even on that same day, within a few hours, it broke in nicely. And now it's maybe the most comfortable thing in my closet. Beyond that, it looks good. I'm a comedian, and it photographs well when I'm on stage, so that's huge. If you're even contemplating getting this, I highly suggest you do it. The founders are great people. This thing is very comfortable. And I've had a great time wearing mine.

The Best

I didn't even know a sweater could be this good. I'm pretty sure it's some kind of magic. The fit and fabric feel are perfect. And the colors (undyed and charcoal) are both gorgeous. I've never worn anything made with 3D knitting, but the seamless construction is so flattering. I haven't felt this good in a piece of clothing in a long time. I love truly special objects that are made for everyday use, and this is definitely one of those items.

Travel further and pack light

This material is sustainable, antimicrobial, and super easy to wear for a whole week at a time. One of the biggest worries that I had, especially in Denver in May, was that I wouldn't be able to play outside in the sun as the weather got warmer without sweating a ton and smelling after only a couple of days. It wasn't a problem with this sweater, which is absolutely fascinating. I am definitely looking forward to streamlining my wardrobe and finding ways that I can wear better and wear less. I would highly highly recommend this to honestly any of my friends that are focused on sustainability and or light travel. It's one of the things that I am focusing on is being able to travel with just a backpack and being able to drop down what I'm wearing to a handful of items for a week without needing to wash multiple loads of clothing is absolutely fantastic. I can travel further and have a little bit bit more flexibility and freedom. So the challenge was an absolute pleasure to do, and I'm really glad they came out with a new color. Thank you guys, I had a really fun time. Not having to think about what I had to wear for a whole week. And also not having my co-workers even notice that I was wearing the same sweater in every single Zoom call all week long. So wonderful, especially if you're looking for sustainable, antimicrobial clothes that you don't have to think about it.

Replaced my cashmere sweaters

I love my new sweaters! I bought 2 in March and I wanted to get the other colors. I never heard of the 1-Week Challenge but I inadvertently wore them practically everyday since I got them. I love how they never seem to pill and then when I washed them they look like new. You have no idea how difficult it is to find a sweater of this quality. The fit is also so amazing. Not too big not to small…perfect. This is the perfect sweater. It has replaced my cashmere sweaters that look like crap after one hour since they never stop pilling. Thanks so much. I love them

High quality and very durable

I gotta say, I'm impressed with this sweater! Extremely comfortable. It has held up over continuous wear - I've worked out in it, did my hobbies in it, and went to work wearing it. My work is pretty physical (I'm an engineer and I build prototypes). One thing I was very impressed by was how it did not hold on to odors throughout all this wear. This is an excellent piece of clothing, high quality and very durable. I never felt at any time I was over-stressing it. I am really happy I ordered this and it's going to be something I wear for years. I've always been in the camp of a simple simpler wardrobe with much more durable goods, and the OC sweater was perfect for what I was looking for.

Yaks in Tibet

I love clothing made from exotic animals. The sweater appealed to me because I saw yaks in Tibet.

Bought a second one

I'm at the age now where I want only a small number of garments that are of the highest quality fabrics. Oliver Charles does such a good job with their sweaters I bought a second one after absolutely loving the first. after absolutely loving the first.

I am THRILLED with the fit

It fits like a dream I have narrow shoulders and the 3d knitting hides that. It is long enough ...seldom found in off the rack clothing. The navy is a beautiful color . I’ve worn it every day since it arrived from 90 degrees to 65 degrees . Pittsburgh has wild weather. I love well made clothing and have Escandar cashmere sweaters . I have linen sheets and wool comforter , my rugs are wool . When I worked I wore 7 oz summer weight wool suits in summer..I wear fine wool sock all year. My concern was the itch factor. So far no itch!
