@dmeasy   just because you don't buy from Q apparently many do and how do you know because they do they have massive credit card debt,  that is a huge assumption on your part

Re: CREW NECK ACRILIC SWEATER

Acrylic sweaters are junk.  They look nice, but as soon as they are worn, they start to look dumpy.

 

They pill and pick up lint andget fuzzy.  I always check the fabric content.  If acrylic is mentioned, I refuse to buy it even if it is only a few dollars.  I know it will be a waste of money.

 

In addition, acrylic is strongly linked to breast cancer.

Re: CREW NECK ACRILIC SWEATER

I now only purchase Lori's items when they go on clearance sales, they're just way too expensive.

And I usually get my size, if it's not in stock I wait till one is returned and get it at a good price.

As for washing, I put all tops on delicate using cold water, then hang them on the line, never use dryers for jeans or tops.  They always come out fine!

Re: CREW NECK ACRILIC SWEATER

I can't wear acrylic or wool next to my skin because they are so itchy. Acrylic is one of the worst fabrics around. Wool is beautiful, but I have to wear something between it & my skin.

 

Well I hate to complain about Lori's fashions because some people insult me saying I can't afford them & that's why I don't like them. Really, I could certainly buy them if I ever saw anything in her line that I like.

 

Speaking of itchy, those $70 some dollar lace leggings were over priced & I am sure they are very itchy.

 

Just my opinions about Logo fashions. Not intended to insult those of you who like them.

@Effie54.  I've got a CCB sweater with acrylic that I've just worn in the house occasionally that has never been washed and it's solid pills, front and back.

Oh see......my point exactly. The Q makes so many acrylic sweaters and I've had very few that didn't pill. Mine all did.

Re: CREW NECK ACRILIC SWEATER

It appears to me that the decision makers at QVC seem to think that Logo is deserving of higher prices for some reason...I disagree and do not buy.
