I also have eczema but polyester doesn't irritate my skin. I agree that polyester is great because it doesn't wrinkle. Wool and cashmere though...itchy! It's really too bad though because I would love to buy a classic cashmere sweater.

Maybe a polyester blend not 100% polyester. Polyester is the worst material to wear in the summertime!

I can't wear it at all. It irratates my skin b/c I have really bad eczema. :( But, I would wear it if I could.
