Rated 5 out of 5 by Linville Great value
This sweater is typical of Bean's continuing high quality. As a long time Bean customer of over forty years, it is a pleasure to see them maintain their high quality.
The only thing I would request with this sweater is that Bean made it available in a long.

Rated 1 out of 5 by intotheblue Not Soft -- Very Scratchy
This sweater is NOT SOFT. I just got this as a gift for my boyfriend and we are both really disappointed. We're definitely returning it.
The whole point of cashmere is that it is supposed to be silky soft, but this is the scratchiest cashmere either of us have have ever felt. It feels exactly like regular wool (so much that I almost wonder if it is mislabeled). If you're sensitive to wool, this is unwearable.
The L.L.Bean cotton/cashmere blend V-neck sweaters, on the other hand, are GREAT-- my boyfriend has several and they are much softer than this one & a much better value.
The one good thing about this sweater is the color. I got the Black Forest Green and it is a very classy and beautiful deep green, even better in person than the pictures. We both wish they made the cotton/cashmere blend sweater in this color!

We can't find better sweaters for my husband anywhere else. The color is as described, the sweater fits him perfectly and the cashmere is good quality. Like all L L Bean items you can have confidence that what you are ordering is what you will get with great service and high standards.

The sweater fits as well as the lambs wool sweaters and is about the same weight. The styling and color are a bit different. Both are excellent sweaters.

This is part of husband's Christmas present. He has several of these sweaters and pretty much lives in them during the cold seasons.. We both love cashmere, it keeps you just right, never overheats. They look good and hold up well. The colors stay rich looking after several washings. At first, I send these to the cleaners, but after a few years, I hand wash them in Woolite and treat them very gingerly, and they come out just fine. You can't go wrong with a gift of cashmere if you're stuck on someone who is hard to buy for. It doesn't have to be a sweater. Just something cashmere will be appreciated by the recipient.

Wonderful sweater, great price. Maybe there's a difference between this cashmere sweater and one for which you'd pay $500, but at some point the margin of utility becomes absurd. This cashmere sweater is cozy-soft, warm, light, and a great value.
