Rated 4 out of 5 by NortheasternOhioan Inaccurate Color
I have several of these marled sweaters and like them very much.
However, the color of the the Island Coral sweater on the LLBean website is so very inaccurate. The true color of the sweater is like a pumpkin marbled with white.
When I first ordered this sweater, I did so for the color shown on the internet. I was so disappointed that I sent it back.
In a few months I ordered it again thinking that the original sweater purchased/returned was a previous years leftover and that the new batch of sweaters must be this pumpkin color as shown since the photo had not changed. WRONG! It was so marbled with white. I returned this one also.
I ordered again after the holidaysl and this one has little more of the pumpkin color but still has a lot of white marbled through it, so right now I still have it, though I have not worn it. I originally ordered this sweater in early summer to wear during Fall of 2014 as a nice bright autumn sweater to wear out and about.
LLBean....please update your photos to actually match the merchandise you sell.

I'm petite plus sized and struggle finding clothes that fit properly. In order to get something to fit around my body, the sleeves and legs are gigantically long. The marled cotton sweater hit all the right marks. It fit perfectly around the chest without clinging and the sleeves hit right at the wrist. I couldn't believe how perfectly it fit.
The weight of the sweater is perfect, too. Not too thick and not too thin - as Goldilocks would say it's just right!

This is a lovely sweater but the sleeves are too tight to put a long sleeve top under. It is a bit heavy for summer use. It is nice to see something with a generous sleeve length.

very substantial (in weight) sweater. fit me well, i'm 5'6" abt 125#, got a medium. color "wisteria blue" is not depicted accurately; it's actually much lighter, but it's still a pretty blue.

I bought the striped cardigan in a large. I am 5'8", 165 lbs. and wear my cardigans open with a pintucked tee underneath. The large fits perfectly that way, and the colors are what attracted me to this sweater.

Rated 3 out of 5 by LongPond So Disappointed
This is a good looking sweater - it will get lots of compliments, too bad it curls up at the bottom. This makes it look cheap and sloppy. It will be returned - it's too expensive not to be "awesome".

Love this sweater. It is medium to light weight and very well made. Fit is very flattering. Not too snug, and not boxy. Purchased in Indigo. Beautiful color. Will go back for a different color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by diinin Blue Heather striped sweater is BEAUTIFUL!!
I have several of the marled cardigans. Without question, they look the best on me, compared with my other LLB sweaters. I love the "boxy" look, and the small crew neck. It's perfect.
Just got the Blue Heather striped version--WOW! The heathered colors start at the top with gray, and go through teal, light blue, down to indigo (exact same color as my solid indigo sweater in this style). Absolutely love this. Last year I got the coral/beige striped one and that was just as awesome. Whoever puts together the colors and designs for these striped marled sweaters deserves a raise!
The sleeves are about an inch longer than my coral/tan sweater from last year. I don't care about sleeve length, but I know other people do.

When the first marled sweaters first came out from LL Bean I started collecting them and I still am today. My NEW favorites this year are the Aquamarine and the Blue Stripe. I've already written a review for the stripe so I'll leave comment on the Aquamarine.
For all the marled sweaters from LL Bean that I own, The Aquamarine is absolutely STUNNING!! It is as gorgeous as a gem and pairs perfectly with the aquamarine LL Bean tee.Although I'll want a few more colors this year, the aquamarine will be my absolute favorite! The photograph does NOT do it justice, you have to see it!!
