Love their service, many choices. What solid or stripe knits are you ordering for fall tops?
Specific names, please. Also those for kids.

I like the warmth-feel of a cotton blend over slippery jersey and not the thinner "tissue" types. Not the heavy almost double-knit kind. Last fall I got a sweater-knit from them intended for a flutter jacket, but it was so stretchy and "slimy" I returned it. The photo did not show the sparkle in it either.

I confess that I ordered a bunch of knits from them last night....I can let you know what the hand is like when they arrive, but I mostly ordered rayons. I also prefer a bit of lycra for better recovery. In heavier knits, I prefer wool blends, but I like rayons, bamboo, tencel, etc for jersey and lightweight knits for layering. And slinky for knit shell tops to wear under jackets

I got two for a loose-fitting vest topper (this is a Vogue Sandra Betzina patter)
the wear-to-work version: Rayon Sweater Knit Brown/Tan/Silver FH-334
and the wear-at-home version Designer Stretch Wool/Cotton Blend Jersey Knit Stripes Black/Red FK-949

for boring layering tops
Rayon Slub Jersey Knit Burnt Orange UO-292
Stretch Rayon Jersey Knit Mocha UO-297

and a fun stripe for a yet-undetermined top
Designer Stretch Rayon Jersey Knit Stripe Brick/Brown FP-931

mmmmm woooool
