    I have gone and looked at real Aran sweaters, and tried to justify the price.

    They are not pink, after all.  So with that and being waterproof, they are probably worth every penny.

    I do have the most amazing New Zealand hand-knitted cardigan though.  All around it shows a landscape with sky and hills and fields.  And little sheep dotted all over.

    Here is the link, but in the wrong color:

    Mine was earth toned.  So I gladly paid $400US+ for it.  Definitely the most expensive piece of clothing I own.  But I won't be going out milking in it.

      that I got for dollars at the thrift store.  I love them.  If I can dig up the really big one I have I will send it to you.  I will contact you via kosmail.  I have so many old wool sweaters that I cannot pass upo\ at $3 bucks a pop.  I know that they are handmade, 100% wool and originally expensive.   If I could send them to a good home I would be glad to part with one.  Let me know.  I have no pink, just earth tones.   We call them fisherman sweaters.  Is that the same as Arun?  I have two that say Arun on the lable.

      And she's good at appearing sane, I just want you to know. Winwood/Capaldi
