Rated 1 out of 5 by minx Not happy
This sweater is a lot thinner than I thought. It shows every lump and bump and isn't at all warm. Will have to wear a shaper under it along with a shirt to, to try and stay warm.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Oceanlizzie So soft and flattering
I bought this sweater in dark ivy and like it so much I just ordered it in natural. It's really one of the softest sweaters I've ever worn and am looking forward to chilly weather so I can wear them! The neckline is very flattering: not tight or confining but still warm. True to size: I'm 5'3", 125 and the petite small is perfect. If I wanted a slimmer look the petite xsmall would work but I wanted a looser look and one I could wear over a tshirt if desired.
Everything about this sweater is just right. I highly recommend it! Dark Ivy is lovely.

Rated 5 out of 5 by filumena2 Comfortable Sweater...
Wrote a review a ways back....This Funnel Sweater is warm & comfortable. Comes in array of wonderful colors too. Fun to wear with almost any pair of pants.. jeans to dressy, or even a long skirt. But I have found that it seems to stretch out, in all directions. A solution that I found was to ignore the washing & drying instructions. For the brave of heart.....Just put it in you normally color wash (cold) and dry it in the dryer. Instantly you have a sweater that finally fits again. Back to it's original size. It's a shame it has so much give...buy hey...it's another great standby & great garment from llbean!

by IdahoMary Cute, but defects missed in inspection at factory
This is a really cute, soft sweater. On one arm is what looks like a place where the yarn was stopped/started. When I put it on, that place looks like there is a 4 inch tear. (See photo) The yarns were so thinly caught with the next row that it doesn't look like it will hold for long. I am so disappointed in Bean's quality lately. This wasn't a cheap sweater, either - I paid full price. I will probably try to stitch up the defect so it doesn't look so bad because I bought this for a specific function in a few days. I am not happy that I have to repair a NEW product. Not sure if I will be shopping at LLBean anymore. It is just too hard to buy when you can't actually see the quality and the prices are premium, so you should get premium quality.

I like this years version of this sweater much better than the one I got last year. I don't know if changes were made by L.L.Bean, but the neckline and fit are better for me. This is the soft sweater you can snuggled into on a cold day.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Tache Arms way too long
Ordered this in medium petite. Sleeves are a good 2 inches longer than the stated petite measurements. Too bad. Great sweater otherwise.

Rated 4 out of 5 by CoastalCTShopper Not my favorite LL Bean piece
This sweater had mixed reviews but I bought it anyway. I have to say, it is just...okay. The length of the sweater is good for me (long torso & arms). Don't know why people are complaining about the neck. The length is fine there. The weave is on the looser side, so you need to wear a tank top underneath or you will be able to see through it. (Note: I haven't washed it yet, perhaps this will change). I can see what people are talking about the quality of the yarn. Its not up to snuff with the rest of their sweaters. Still a good value for a nice casual sweater. Roomier fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by eycsd Soft and cozy
Can't wait to snuggle in this soft sweater this Fall. I ordered a petite-Small in Dark Ivy. Its color is so rich and true to size. I'm a 5'1", 110lb; the small fits perfect. The length goes well in skirts or jeans. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by cologardener Wonderful, but tight neck!
This is a great sweater---soft and cozy! Love the dark ivy color for Fall as well. Sleeves could be longer, but I have this issue with many clothing items, so I will blame my arms, not the sweater:). The neck is tight on the small size that I ordered. I am 5' 8", 130 lbs. and think I have a fairly small head and long neck, so in this case, I have to point to the sweater design. But it's a keeper---I can certainly live with this little issue---just wanted to warn others.
