Rated 5 out of 5áby kkraft Funnelneck sweater/want more
I just have for the first time put my Ivy Green funnelneck sweater on and I just love it. Went to buy more but they are all out. Hopefully they will be brought back again. It fits perfect and the neck is very flatering for me (77 yrs old) Please bring it back LLBean!

Rated 3 out of 5áby ownerofvizsla disappointed in shrinkage
I bought this sweater in aqua teal and it is really pretty and very soft. I bought a medium and the first time I wore it, it fit fine. It did "shed" as I had read that it would in other reviews. I am now disappointed because after one washing in cold water with flat drying as directed, it has shrunk. Now the sleeves are above my wrists and it is shorter than it was originally. The neck is snug getting it over your head, but once it is on, it is fine. I would return it, but they are sold out of this color in a large. I will say that after the first wash it is not "shedding" anymore.

Rated 3 out of 5áby stellar2 Like everything but the pills!
Although this purchase is brand new, it is already pilling after two wearings. Yes, I'd read the reviews but decided to take a chance anyway. I am going to keep it because it looks and feels great, so soft, and I'll shave the pills. I bought the dark ivy, and like the real color better than it shows in the catalogue: richer but still subtle. Small or X-small are my usual llbean sizes and the small is perfect.
Warm enough for Pacific Northwest winters.
I'd recommend it to others but with a caution about the pilling. I expect better quality from llbean for the price.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Catz1611 Great Sweater
I was on the fence about ordering this sweater because of some of the negative reviews. But, I went ahead and ordered one in the Natural color.
SO glad I did! I am 5'7" tall, weigh about 130. I am athletic, I'm not overweight and I am slim with a long torso.
The color is great true to the picture. The sweater material is very soft, the neck is tall.
I had no problem what so ever getting the sweater over my head and the neck is perfectly comfortable.
I can wear either a medium or a small size depending on the brand of clothing. With LLBean, I went ahead and ordered a Medium to be on the safe side. The fit was perfect. I think if I had gone with a small, it would have been too tight.
Because I am long waisted, I need length in my sweaters. The length was perfect. in the arms and in the waist. the bottom of the sweater hit about 3-4in below my hip bone.
I tried this sweater with skirts and it looked great!
To sum it up, this sweater was a great buy!
It's refreshing to find stores who offer style with quality. I will order more colors in the future.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Clavie Greatl, comfy sweater!
This is a great, comfy sweater. I got it in natural, wish it came in some non-pastel colors. Charcoal gray would be a terrific addition to the color choices!

Rated 5 out of 5áby Bella74 Love it
I ordered a medium in the light ivory. It is exceptional! I wanted to wear it with leggings and it is long enough to do so. I wish most of them weren't sold out otherwise I would order in many more colors. Very comfortable and true to size. Soft and holds its shape. I have not washed it yet but I imagine I will lay it flat to dry so it doesn't shrink much.

Rated 5 out of 5áby victoriasponge soooo soft
I bought the coral in a medium, wish the large had been available but these sold out pretty quickly, I will know next year so hope they bring them back. The choice of colours was wonderful and I'm not joking when I say super soft, and I mean super soft cotton. I think I can stretch it a bit when I wash it and it will be perfect. I like my sweaters a little on the roomy side so that's why I would have gone with the large. The length is mid hip, a bit shorter than I'm used to for the winter but the colour and softness is so beautiful I don't care. oh and well made too.

Rated 5 out of 5áby RediscoveringBean New Favorite Sweater
I love this sweater...the slouch turtleneck, the color (sort of a mossy green) and the feel. Have washed it three times so far with no ill effects. I will probably order more as I am not much of a shopper and when I find something I like I order multiples.
I used to have trouble getting my size at L.L. Bean. But this XS fit me well (weigh about 108).

Rated 4 out of 5áby Cleo1 Glad I ordered this
A little nervous about sizing and quality after reading a number of reviews, but stayed with my usual size (small) and the fit was great. There was a slight difference in garment and sleeve length between the two colors I ordered, but nothing significant. It is a great sweater - no problem with the neck size either in pulling it over my head or once it was on. The sweater is fitted without being clingy. I have long arms and am happy with the sleeve length. As it is a below hip length, you'll want to wear this with very slim, form fitting pants or leggings. I'm taking another reviewer's advice and ordering the ivy in addition to the bay blue and sunlit coral, both of which were super colors - very flattering shades.

Rated 4 out of 5áby Belltone Comfortable and toasty
Read some of the negative reviews and almost didn't order this sweater. So glad I decided to make up my own mind; and I ordered one size larger than I normally wear. Sleeves were indeed too long, so I washed it in warm water on delicate setting and dried it in dryer with just a few other cotton clothes. Came out just perfect; so there is some shrinkage, but just enough to make the sleeves just right. I'd buy another one, but most of the colors I'd choose are sold out. Hopefully next year there will be more to choose from. LL Bean, you have done it again!!
