Rated 1 out of 5 by MrFleece Sheds lint and buttons too large
This sweater keeps shedding lint on my dress shirts, even with careful washing following the instructions. I see other reviewers have had this problem. In addition, I agree with the other reviewers that the buttons are too large for the holes. Usually impressed with LL Bean quality but disappointed this time.

Rated 1 out of 5 by relentlesslyurban disappointed this time around
I thought it was just my husband....a librarian so not engaged in arduous work that would naturally put wear and tear on the sweater, but then I saw a review that pointed out the same experience that we have had! The knit fabric of this sweater has not held up that well-- in fact the elbows started going after only about 2 months-- and he alternates it with other sweaters. And yet
he still has the same sweater model that we bought over 3 years ago (one at least 6 years ago!), just needed some elbow patches after all that time! Yes, the quality definitely seems to be less substantial on this sweater that was purchased a few months ago! So I'm not crazy after all!

Rated 2 out of 5 by LLBeanCustomer84 Disappointed, won't be back.
Pros: Very warm and comfortable. Fits perfectly and very stylish. Received a lot of compliments on how nice it was from random people (until it started unwinding and random holes formed, now it's a house only sweater).
Cons: After 1 year both sweaters I purchased are falling apart. The wool is unwinding and there are random holes in it. I got them dry cleaned as the instructions stated on the tag and inspected them before I left the dry cleaners to make sure they weren't damaged.

Rated 5 out of 5 by AnneNorge Warm, light, handsome
This lambswool cardigan is so light yet so warm! And very handsome. I keep buying them year after year for my now 91 year old father who wears them year round in his native Norway. He particularly likes the berry blue but has them in other colors as well.

The correct fit for me. Just what I wanted and expected. My old and first sweater like this finally wore out after many winters.
Backordered on March 1, 2015, delivered August 26.

This cardigan is a beautiful blue; it;s a dark medium blue, not deep navy. It's also well-made, as usual. It fits perfectly, too. I'm happy with this purchase.

Nothing beats lambswool for warmth, and this LL Bean cardigan embodies great comfort and incredible value! The first cardigan I ordered was heather grey; my husband wore it everyday when the weather started getting colder. I bought the dark mariner blue so I could wash the grey one! The sweater launders well, does not "pill" and has a very soft hand. No shrinking if you follow the washing directions. The fine wool knit is substantial, but not bulky, and the fit is true to size. This is a wonderful example of LL Bean craftsmanship and quality.

I purchased this lambswool LL Bean button down sweater for my husband for Christmas. After searching through numerous mall department stores, my son recommended LL Bean to me to look for dad's sweater. My husband is a high school teacher and says the fourth floor where his classroom is varies in temperature during the day. He was so happy to see a button down sweater in a gift wrapped box - he immediately tried it on and wore it to school the next week after Christmas. He mentioned that he received complements from colleagues (and even some students - the younger generation!) on his new sweater. My husband requires TALL sizes and LL Bean sure helped me with this one. Thank you!

Rated 4 out of 5 by viator Fine sweater but
Well made and comfortable but wish the subtle, sophisticated green previously offered were still available. Keep Kelly Green by all means for those who like it, but please bring back former green shade for those who find current color too loud.
