Rated 5 out of 5 by TexasTom Soft, warm, well made and great value
I have owned this Bean cashmere sweater for nearly a year and love it. The cashmere is soft in the navy color I purchased, hasn't pilled, keeps its shape pretty well, has a nice full cut, and the fabric feels relatively thick. I suppose this is due in part to the cable knit, but mostly it's the high quality cashmere Bean uses. All things considered, this is a very nice sweater, especially at the price, and I think you'll like it.

I buy my husband one of these sweaters every year. They are beautifully made, just the right weight to fit under a jacket, and they keep him cosy!. He gets so many compliments on them.

The color description of deep garnet, as well as the image, led me to expect a deep red. Instead I got something that was a bright red tending toward orange. Hideous.

Bought this sweater in red for my step-dad for Christmas. Beautiful color and the cashmere is so soft. I've looked at cashmere sweaters at other stores and they always feel quite thin. This sweater is not like the others, it is not thin feeling at all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lincolncenter Excellent quality & customer service!
I ordered a red cashmere cable sweater from another online company that arrived with holes, crumpled in a box and costing more than LL Bean's product! I was in a tough spot to get my husband his requested Christmas sweater. I saw this one online and read great reviews but it was "sold out" in red in a size large. I called customer service and they found a few in a store! They had someone there mail it to me expedited--and then waived the charge--at an incredibly busy time. Everyone was so attentive, apologizing for a couple of minutes wait while they didn't give up searching for me. So unlike my other experience! And the sweater is beautiful! Excellent craftsmanship, the fit is great, it's soft and my husband said, "perfect!" Moreover, he was complimented by many today at festivities with comments of "great sweater!" his answer? "because my wife outfits me!" And that's because LL Bean does not disappoint--in product or service! Thank you, Bean!

This is a very nice cashmere sweater, and at $169 is a tremendous value. I currently own 12 cashmere sweaters from other manufacturers, and I like this fabric because it is light, really soft, looks great, and lasts a long time. This is my first cashmere sweater from LLB, and it is every bit as nice or better than the other sweaters I have. It is thick and soft, is properly sized, and the color is beautiful. If you like wearing cashmere like me, feel confident this is money well spent.

Incredibly soft, provides warmth and comfort, without being bulky. Can be used alone or provide a layer under a sport coat.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Isleofgough Soft but did not hold up
The sweater is silky soft and looks great for a few days and then pills and stretches. I returned it in a week. I have cashmere sweaters from over a decade that do not do this. Probably it is due to the loose weave and poor quality cashmere.
