Bleh. This winter I lived in turtleneck sweaters. I can't wear wool because it itches, so I stocked up on cotton turtles. Well, after one season (not over yet) most of them are literally falling apart at the seams. I have holes in the neck and armpit seams on about 5 of the sweaters I bought from the Gap, Old Navy and Eddie Bauer. What's the deal? I am so mad. I am not doing anything different as far as washing. The sweaters I purchased the past years are still okay. Grrrr! The quality has gone way downhill.
