I`m too lazy to go and dig out my snis - besides it could take weeks.

So, is the rayon in Callista really shiny in a Luna or Brilla type way? I have made DH 3 sweaters in the last 5 months or so - wool because we rae in upstate NY and it is really cold in the winter (12F is our daytime high today). But he can;t wear them for long because they keep his office toasty. So I was thinking about this - nice breathable fabric, easy care, fine gauge, good colours (esp the green). But is it too shiny for a man`s sweater?

The darker colors that I have - Bosenberry, Italian Plum and Tarragon - have very little shiny factor. The black on my sample card, also the creme cafe (a wee bit), has no shiny factor. It`s very subtle on all colors except pink and linen. Good luck in your choice. I think the burnt olive is a great color.
