Rated 5 out of 5 by Capegardengirl Runs a little small but an excellent winter staple
This sweater is soft, warm and comfortable without too much bulk..The neckline isnt too tight and gently hugs and molds the neck in warmth, not chokes it..It washes beautifully and doesn't shrink a lot even though its 100 percent cotton?I have 5 of them in 5 colors and wear them all winter..Grey, turquoise, black, light tan and purple?I do buy a size one up larger to accommodate for shrinking?Best of all, no ichy scratching ,as with wool sweaters and cotton blends..This only gets softer with more washings and keeps its color and durability very nicely over the years....Great price too compared to other quality sweaters out there..The best turtleneck out there in terms of quality, warmth, durability and cost, IMO?I couldn't live without mine..

Rated 4 out of 5 by AZBeanFan Runs small, nice sweater, good cotton
Instead of my usual size small, I ordered large and also XL. Large fits nicely, although if the sleeves shrink they will be too short. XL is a bit wide in shoulders and chest but not huge. Sleeves are just a bit long but that's good - will allow for shrinkage. This is a cotton sweater, soft but substantial, not bulky, not limp, tight weave. Just the right amount of stretch. I got the gray color & like it a lot. Neck is not too tight.

Rated 4 out of 5 by ShopperInCinci Good, soft sweater - runs oddly small...
My measurements fit well within the XS range and I'm 5'3", but based on some other reviews, I ordered a small regular. Good call, as the fit in the arms, shoulders, chest and arm length are just right. The overall length, however, is much shorter than expected. It falls just below the waistband of my pants, and I'd call it just above the hip - there is no hip coverage. I double checked the size to be sure it wasn't a petite, and sure enough it was labeled as regular. It washed well with no shrinkage noted as yet.
This is a great sweater - just be sure you consider the fit and length. If you want a sweater that acts more like a tunic (covers half the hip or more), this isn't it. Otherwise it's a great choice if you get the right size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Laureline Love this sweater--but---
--it runs EXCEPTIONALLY small. I usually wear an XS. Ordered a medium just to be cautious and it fits snugly. I haven't washed it yet, either. A few years ago, there was a wool version of this turtleneck. PLEASE, please bring that back next year!! I love the one I have and would probably buy every color available if it appeared in the catalog again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by greenbeangirl2 Love this turtleneck sweater
I have this sweater in black, gray and light blue. Just wish it was a touch longer and it would be perfect (hence the four stars). I typically wear a small in LLB tops, but the medium was a much better fit. Love the weight of it and is made well. Please offer navy! Thank you LLB for your excellent customer service.

Rated 2 out of 5 by MarilynnB Not Soft and Cuddly
This sweater is attractive, but that's all I can say good about it.
First, the texture--It's a very stiff cotton knit, not soft to the touch, and not flexible. I don't like the feel of it at all.
Secondly, the fit--Yes, this is described as a "slightly fitted" sweater, but it's just plain tight everywhere. I wanted a bigger, slightly oversized sweater, so I ordered a size up from what I normally wear. It's tight, even in the arms. The armholes are small, and the arms are restricting all from the wrist to the shoulder.
Sending it back.

Rated 2 out of 5 by RealMIdwest oops, wrong sweater
I reviewed a beautiful wool sweater here ... wrong sweater. This sweater is indeed cotton. The cotton is great, the cables are attractive. However, the sweater is way too short and a bit boxy. The sleeves are a little short, but the length should be a minimum of 4 or 5 inches longer. I often wear petite, but I ordered a regular, and in the back the sweater barely came down to my waist. Very unattractive!

Rated 5 out of 5 by RealMIdwest beautiful
Beautiful sweater--nice cable styling, perfect, flattering length. Unfortunately, I was not paying enough attention; I was looking for cotton, and this is wool.
Please make this same sweater--especially this flattering length--in a nice soft cotton!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Qualityreview DoubleLTurtleNeck Cable
The color was very nice and the cut flattering. However, the turtleneck section was too large and went up too high on the neck - too "turtle" for me. The fabric seemed rather stiff - unlike previous cotton cable sweaters so it was a bit uncomfortable. I am returning the purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Penguin44 Perfect Fit
I'm so glad I read the other reviews that recommended ordering a size larger. I'm 5'3" tall & 118 lbs & I always order a Small. I took the other reviewers' advice & ordered a Medium & it fits perfectly! Perfect weight - not too heavy, not too thin. Will definitely order more colors!
