When I first pulled the sweater out of the box, I laughed
Comments about Product: When I first pulled the sweater out of the box, I laughed because it looked like the small I ordered was from the kid's department (I am 5'6 and 135 pounds). But when I tried it on, it fit much better through the torso than I anticipated. It is truly a beautiful and warm sweater.
However, like other reviewers, the sleeves were too short for me. They hit right above my wrist bones and I prefer my sweaters to be a little bit longer in the sleeves.
Overall, I'd say the small..."fits," but I prefer my sweaters to have a little more room so I am going to try the medium for size and then keep whichever one fits best.
Comments about Product: I actually bought this sweater while visiting Ireland a few years ago. I am so pleased to see it at Plow and Hearth! Every time I wear it I receive a number of compliments, and I wear it often. It is very flattering and can be worn casually or dressed-up equally well. I have it in green and I plan to buy another in a different color. I would definitely recommend it to all!
Comments about Product: I'm 5'4", 125 lbs and usually like to have a medium because I'm a 34DD. This sweater was perfect. The thing I like the best is that it can be worn open and just drapes nicely down the front. The sleeve length was perfect. I love the green color. If it's a little tight in the chest, just move the buttons.The wool is soft and not the least bit scratchy and I'm very sensitive to that. It's a very warm sweater and perfect for me. I plan on having it for a long time.
Comments about Product: This sweater fits fine - I think it will be versatile enough to wear with jeans or dressy pants. I have not washed it yet, so I cannot critique that, but I am completely satisfied. The color was true to the photo and I might get one for my arthritic mother, who struggles with too many buttons or zippers.
Comments about Product: I was given this as a gift for Christmas and I really loved it. The color is beautiful, as is the knitting and the design. It's incredibly warm and I can't wait to wear it often!
Comments about Product: I bought this for a friend who normally wears a size L. I chose an XL so she could layer under it, but the sleeves were way too tight for that (and a bit too short, as well). The chest was none too generous, either. It's a gorgeous sweater, but the fit just isn't right.
Comments about Product: Absolutely loved this sweater...but...the sleeve length was about 2" too short...still considered keeping it...but it didn't look right with that much arm exposed. It looked as if it had shrunk after being washed or dry cleaned.
Comments about Product: I work in a cold room, thought the sweater seemed kind of thinner than I expected. When I got to work, wearing a turtle neck under it, I found I did not have to get out the heater I usually turn on - it was a really nice warm sweater. Plus I got complimented on the style.
Comments about Product: I ordered a Medium green one first and found it was a warm green (yellow-based) color and a bit small in the chest, so I returned it. I was looking for a blue-based color (cool color) and found that in the red, which was more a pink/red cooler color. Great color for me and the Large size fits well! I normally wear a size 10 top.
Comments about Product: When I opened the package and tried on the sweater, I found that the stitching was pulled loose. So I repacked it and shipped it back. I loved the look and color of the sweater, and probably could have reordered another, but I didn't want to take chance that the loose stitching was problematic with this type of sweater.
Comments about Product: The quality is outstanding so are the unique details. It's what sets this sweater apart from your typical "irish" sweater. I thought the color green in the catalog was brighter than the one I recieved. Was looking for a bold kelly green. I'm still keeping it because its so lovely.
Comments about Product: I don't get a chance to dress up much at all, so when the chance comes to just dress up my jeans I'll put the sweater on. I'll also use it as a "jacket" and put a turtleneck on underneath it's so warm.

The Olla: A Brief History
Olla (Spanish, pronounced “oh-ya”) jars have been around since ancient times. Made of unglazed ceramic, ollas traditionally have short, narrow necks with wider bodies, and are made in a variety of shapes. They have been used for thousands of years for cooking, storage, and plant irrigation.
When used to irrigate plants, an olla is buried neck-deep in the ground near a plant’s roots, with the opening of the olla extended above the soil so that it can be filled with water periodically. The porous walls of the unglazed pottery allow the water to seep through gradually, constantly and consistently hydrating the plants without overwatering them – and without wasting precious water to evaporation or runoff.
The use of ollas for irrigation was introduced to the American Southwest by Spanish conquistadors during Colonial times, becoming very common among Native American tribes and Hispanic settlers. Though the technique gave way to more modern methods of irrigation some time ago, its superior efficiency, coupled with its simplicity, has caused it to make a comeback. Though the technique has changed little since its introduction, today’s ollas are usually capped off, making them even more water-efficient.
Perfect for home gardens, Ollas are a super-easy, eco-friendly, less time-consuming way to water annuals, perennials, herbs, vegetables and plants of all kinds in dry, sandy soil, very hot or drought-prone areas, raised beds, and even pots, planters and hanging baskets. Fill the olla before you leave on a short vacation to enjoy worry-free watering – and a smaller water bill!
