Rated 3 out of 5 by tjbel05 Disappointed
FIRST, I love this sweater and design...BUT, you only offered it in wool this year. WHY? Up until this year I would get a new Kingfield sweater every year for Christmas IN COTTON.!!!! I can not wear wool. I am so disappointed in this. Please bring back the cotton one. I searched the discontinued ones on line, but I already have the colors available.
PLEASE BRING BACK THE COTTON VERSION!!!

I was hesitant to pay this much for any sweater! SO glad I did!!! Super soft regardless of the wool! Runs a bit bigger than my other LL Bean sweaters, but just makes it more comfy!!!!!

I am glad to read some of these reviews to know that I am not to blame. I have not been able to wear my sweater this fall because I, too, washed my sweater and it shrunk so small that I can no longer wear it. It was too expensive for this to happen and I am usually so happy with LLBean merchandise.

I am very pleased with this sweater, but then I am very pleased with nearly everything I buy from LLBean, so this is no exception. Years ago I bought a few Kingfield cardigans in cotton and loved them but then I gained weight and so now have this Kingfield sweater in wool. I was surprised a cotton cardigan was not offered but will enjoy wearing this wool one during the Polar Vortex days! I am 5'8" 165 lbs. and the large fits well except maybe just a little long in the sleeves. I bought it in Spruce and am considering buying the red one as well. I'll wear it over a top with a collar so the wool doesn't itch around my neck.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JanLS Fits perfectly
I bought the red and white cotton Kingfield sweater recently, and have been very pleased with all aspects of it. I'm 5'3, size 10 and the torso length (mid hip), sleeve length, and shoulder fit are perfect. The sweater is thick and warm, but not hot; the buttons are solid and attractive, and the buttonholes are finished well. I plan on buying other colors of this same sweater in the future. Since I'm overly sensitive to wool fibers against my skin, I was so pleased to find that this cotton sweater is extremely suitable for cold winter weather wear.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Emsy Don't Like The New Cut
I have a henley cotton Kingfield that I've had for several years and love; it's wider and boxier. I ordered this cardigan in cotton, and it's too small in the bust. I usually wear a medium but am a 34DD. This cut is for the younger generation who like things skin-tight evidently. The sleeve-length and shoulders were fine for me, so I didn't want to try a large. I sent the medium back. I loved the mallard blue color. Disappointed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by tdoyon great until you wash it
This sweater was amazing - it fit very well and was nice and warm. Then I washed it according to the instructions. The thing has literally shrunk an entire size. It's unwearable. I've owned the cotton version of these, and they typically shrunk a little after the first washing. But what happened to the wool version is just nuts. I'm returning it to the store as soon as I can, but after this I'm going to think twice before purchasing another sweater from L.L. Bean.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BeansRegular Top of the Line Sweater
I have been wanting one of the Kingsfield wool sweaters for years, but was not able to grab my size in my prefered colors. Last year, I purchased one in the petite XS, trying for a less boxy fit, but even though the sleeves were long enough, the body was still too wide but too short.
This year I read reviews stating that this year's version was running a bit more snug. I jumped and got the XS regular in Mallard Blue in the 100% lambswool. The fit is perfect. I am 5'7", 115, and wear a size 4 LLBean shirt. The body fits perfectly over a top, the sleeve length is great, the intricate stitching is wonderful and there are absolutely no flaws. The lambswool is extremely soft and not at all scratchy (and I am wool sensitive). I am totally thrilled.
I am so thrilled that I got back online and ordered the Classic Black, this time in the Cotton, for use in various temps. That too is a perfect fitting, beautifully made sweater.
The intricate knit creates loops of fabric on the back, but they are obvious enough that snagging them from the back can be avoided. I have gotten many compliments on each sweater when worn. I have not tried to spot clean or hand wash either one yet.
I would recommend both versions readily to anyone for a classic winter look with warmth that cannot be beat. This is an all winter sweater, not just for the holiday season. Keep up the great quality work and the great color choices, LLBean!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Charann BEAUTIFUL AND WARM CARDIGAN SWEATER
I ORDERED THIS KINGFIELD CARDIGAN IN MALLARD BLUE IN COTTON AND ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT. IT IS A REALLY PRETTY SWEATER AND COLOR... A GOOD FIT FOR ME. THE ONLY THING I WILL WARN YOU ABOUT IS TO BE VERY CAREFUL REGARDING THE INSIDE OF THE SWEATER GETTING CAUGHT ON ANYTHING AS IT IS NOT LINED....I HAD A SLACKS BUTTON PULL THE YARN SEVERAL TIMES. I THINK I WILL BE ABLE TO PULL IF BACK THROUGH THOUGH.. ASIDE FROM THIS, IT IS MY MOST FAVORITE SWEATER AND I WEAR IT WITH THE LL BEAN INTERLOCK TURTLENECKS IN THE CREAM SHADE.
