It's still in great condition because it hardly gets worn, not because I don't like it, but because it's so hot. It's from the days when wool was actually wool and not acrylic, and it has the traditional patterns like horseshoes in the sand, rope, and fishing net which makes a lot of it double thickness. Today it came into its own, and I stood at the bus stop warm as toast !
