Rated 3 out of 5 by goose Strange comparisons
I first got the Cashmere Sweater, Crewneck Cable Knit, The sleeves were too short but the fabric was wonderful, and thick. It was returned. I decided to give this one a try. The sleeves are long enough, but the "v" in the neck comes down farther than any "v" neck sweater I have ever owned. It's is perfect for wearing over a dress shirt but who would wear a dress shirt under cashmere? I want to feel the softness of the cashmere against my skin, plus the combination would undoubtedly over heat. The fabric is not as thick as the Cable Knit sweater so I am really torn as to whether to keep this one. Why couldn't the crew neck have longer sleeves?

I love these sweaters. They have had minimal pilling, hold their shape, and are very soft and warm.

Rated 4 out of 5 by hamma not so soft cashmere
purchased as a casual go to sweater. sizing is accurate. not quite as soft or thick as i thought it should be for the $170.00 price tag, i expected a more luxurious garment
buying from llbean is a no brainer....if i'm not happy with my merchandise, i can simply return it.... enough said !!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by FLJoe Consistent in every way
I have bought at least 25-30 sweaters from LLBean over the years (3 alone this Fall). They are consistent in every way: fit, workmanship and fabric. The items are fairly priced for what you get. The cashmere sweater I just received is in this category as all the others. My wife's only complaint is I keep them too long!

I liked the thickness of a single ply sweater (usually like two ply) and I liked the relaxed appearance of the sweater on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by gramahall Exceptionally nice sweater(s)
Since I was heart-broken to find that my long-sleeve, crew neck cashmere sweater in Camel had been the menu for moths since I wore it last winter, I searched everywhere for another one on-line only to find that they were NOT available in Camel in Ladies sweaters.
With intentions of ordering one for my husband for Christmas, I added a Cabled one in size small for me, just to get the color.
Both of us are extremely pleased with the WEIGHT and thickness of these sweaters,(as I also ordered some from a large Dept.store only to find them "skimpy" and thin enough to see a print shirt underneath it, so they went back. Your sweaters are "Classy".
One suggestion: if a customer purchases multiple sizes to check fit, (my husband is long waisted w/ long arms & since you don't offer "Talls"), the return postage charges should be waived if at least ONE of those item was purchased, seems only fair.

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!
