Comments about Product: I was hesitant to order an aran/celtic sweater in anything but green, red or cream, but have those. This blue is so pretty, esp. if you have red hair!! it's a definite pop of color and whatever you wear it with (jeans/dress pants/leggings) will work, and most probably won't notice what pants you have on.
The only negative I can find is that it's dry clean, which so are my other celtic sweaters.
Comments about Product: Christmas gift to Lady friend and she loves it. The only complaint I have it had a 4" loose thread hanging from the bottom that had to be properly cut off to not jepordize the sweater.
Comments about Product: This sweater is great! It looks great, it's comfortable. The cut is generous, but flattering. I love that it falls about mid thigh and elongates your appearance. Wore it with jeans and a white ruffled cotton blouse and some cowboy boots and it looked great- got lots of compliments. If you're on the fence- GET IT!!!
Comments about Product: Can be worn with many things: can layer underneath, can wear it to work add some jewelry and a scarf. Can wear over a T-Shirt for a casual look.
This color would flatter anyone who wore it. It is the rose of the reds!

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!
