Rated 5 out of 5 by Mariko Wonderful Shetland Sweater
This is a terrific Shetland wool Sweater. It's a wonderful cut and fit and has great colors. I bought the khaki/ tan color and the burgundy red, which were both great colors. This is a lovely thick and lofty Shetland wool, yet still soft for Shetland wool. I couldn't be happier, and I'm very choosy about wool sweaters. I bought two of these, one for my husband and one for me. I like a winter sweater that is longer than women's sweaters sometimes are, and I like a loose fit for casual wear at home. It's nice and warm, yet not heavy or bulky. I really hope I will be able to purchase a few more of these sweaters next fall and I hope the fit and quality remain the same, namely excellent.

Searching for a shetland crew neck sweater, I found one XL in cabernet (red) In the South Windsor store reduced. I tried it on, it fit perfectly with a short cuff on the sleeves. It is so nice I looked further and found various colors available but only on line. Needless to say I ordered a gray heather. If it lasts as long as the old one, it will outlive me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Outdoorlover2 Wish something like this were available for women
I still can?t wrap my brain around the fact that each women?s sweater is at least $25 more expensive, and not as warm. Please make something thick and warm for women without a turtleneck for $50. Men?s small works, but is still a bit large! It was five degrees here this morning!! I don?t need to look like a movie star, I need to be warm.

I just bought this grey Shetland wool crew neck sweater for a trip to the Yellowstone National Park in October. It's already getting cold in Jackson Hole. I am very happy with the sweater. Last year the crew neck was not available in the catalog, only the v neck.
I had one over twenty years ago, the only difference, as I recall, it was made in England not China. Too bad we can't make them in the USA. In the photograph, taken in Venice, Italy I am wearing the the LL Bean Shetland wool sweater and the LL Bean green Chamois Cloth shirt which was made in the USA. I was really warm. Love shopping at LL Bean. I always try to use the phone to place an order because the service representatives are so helpful and friendly.

I ordered a Grey Shetland Wool Sweater a few days ago.
I was very happy with the sweater. Last year, I did not see
the crew neck sweaters in the catalog. I am planning on wearing
the one I just ordered to Yellowstone National Park in October. It's already getting cold in Jackson Hole. I had the same sweater twenty years ago and the one I just ordered is just as nice. I am wearing the original in Venice, Italy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Fallhiker Comfortable and warm
I recently purchased this sweater to replace one that I purchased from L L Bean years ago. It was a great sweater and I fully expect the new one to be equally good. It is very comfortable and warm. The only question that I have is the size. My old sweater is a size L-Reg while the new sweater is a size XL-Reg yet both are the same size when I lay one on top of the other. Have the size standards changed or did I just luck out because they are both excellent fits?

These shetland Shaggy Pups are right up there with any other preppy sweaters on the market, especially pricewise although there should be alot more colors available.

Rated 5 out of 5 by lifelongBean Perfect in every way!
Purchased as a birthday gift for my husband. It fits well, color is great (ordered Mountain Red). He says it's warm and comfortable. Wish it were made in the U.S., but that doesn't affect the quality and appearance!

Rated 5 out of 5 by MeLady Quality warm wool sweater!
I ordered two of these as gifts and was not disappointed in any way, nor were the recipients. The Shetland Wool is soft and warm and the sweater is well made. The fit was perfect, true to size. With a wide range of colors available, it was hard to not order more. I was so pleased, I ordered another for myself!
