This wool sweater is my season favorite.
The sweater has a boxy style so it comfortably fits over under-layers. The wool is very warm, the detail is excellent. The wool is not ultra-fine but I don't find it to be "scratchy" although it's meant as an over garment, anyway. Definitely a great value for the price.

Nice looking, warm sweater w/o too much bulk
This the second wool cardigan I purchased because of its fine features. I hope to order another if the color I want is in stock.

this sweater is the way sweaters use to be, but are so hard to find these days. I have worn it several times and there is no 'pilling' of the wool, it is warm, cozy, and the color is rich. Wish is came in more colors than what is offered.

A great warm sweater
This aqua sweater is the second one I have ordered. My other one is grey, and I like it so much, that I wanted another. The wool is soft and warm, and the cardigan style is very versatile.

Love the Teal - Like the Sweater
I wear a PL. The sweater fit is just right except for the sleeves. They are too long. In fact, I will have to roll them up the length of the cuff, and will do so because I really like the sweater. Since other reviewers said that the yarn was itchy, I washed it in cold water on delicate cycle, and used fabric softener in the rinse. Then I shaped it on a bath towel and allowed it to air dry overnight. It didn't shrink,, and it was softer after the wash. I know that I'll wear this sweater for years.

I ordered 2 more colors.
My order arrived in time for below zero nights and mornings, I am happy to say. Needed it under my jacket and was comfy and cozy. It was a compliment getter at work too! Warmer than a couple down vests I have.

Warm and comfortable
I was delighted to find a wool sweater that isn't cashmere. They used to be easy to find but no longer. This sweater is well made and is a good quality wool. It's a little scratchy like traditional shetland often is but is perfectly fine worn over a blouse. The cable pattern is beautiful and the sweater is a good weight. I get cold easily but am cozy warm the days I wear it over an oxford cloth shirt. The sleeves are a little long and the cuffs are not snug. I am a size 6 and the small is ample but not baggy. The rose color I bought is a medium deep rose, not the purple-rose my computer monitor shows. The ribbon on the placket will help keep the sweater's shape for years. I'm very glad I bought this sweater and recommend it for anyone interested in real wool.
