Rated 5 out of 5 by shopperwhennecessary Good Choice For Me
My Thots: This is my second merino sweater from Bean. I purchased the previous one several years ago and loved it. It's a snug fit, warm, keeps its shape after hand washing, maintains its color, and doesn't pill. It's long in body and sleeve, which I like. The price is much higher, but then, so is everything else!

These sweaters are beautiful. I got one in black and another one in red (like a merlot). They look like high quality sweaters and fit perfectly. The red one is an especially pretty color. Because it's wool, it's warm. But it is a slim sweater and not bulky.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MelroseMAGirl Excellent super soft sweater
Highest quality, super soft and machine wash and dry too. I own at least 5 of these sweaters. Highly recommend these sweaters.

I love this sweater. Bought the large and it is just right. Complements slacks nicely for the holidays. Wool is soft against the skin too.

Rated 1 out of 5 by BWeaves Quality control?
1. I'm 5'5" tall, 138 lbs, and 38 (36D)- 32-40 and I've bought this exact same sweater in previous years in a size Medium and it fit me perfectly. I wear it as a top with just a bra underneath.
2. This year (2013) I decided to get two new colors. The dark blue heather was so tight at the hem that I could barely get it over my hips. It was not stretchy at all, like my other ones. The arms were also very tight. On the flip side, the turquoise was so big all over, that I think it must be a Large that has been mislabeled as a Medium.
3. I don't know where LL Bean's quality control has been of late, but it seems to be missing.
4. My versions from past years fit perfectly with just a bra underneath. They were not itchy, they were warm, and they hugged my curves without being suctioned on. They did not pill or shed. I would have kept these new colors if they'd only fit exactly like my four sweaters from last year.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TLCGrandma Well-made, Warmth without bulkiness.
As soon as I put this sweater on, I knew this was a "keeper." It is well-made with a fine knit. It does not itch. It is soft and keeps its shape. It is warm without being bulky. I plan to use it in casual or more dressy situations.

Rated 1 out of 5 by toby1701 Very disappointed in these, sending back.
Just received three colors, all very nice colors. However, the sweaters are very thin, and if held up to the light, you can see right thru them. Therefore, these are very thin sweaters, and they are not at all warm, which is what I was after. Also, after wearing one over a white t-shirt for only five minutes, I had fuzz and lint all over my white shirt. And the sleeves were already fuzzing up on the outside of the sweater. These sweaters cost too much money to be so thin. Sending back asap.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Wildflower1 Perfect fit!
After reading the reviews, I ordered two sweaters in size small. I would normally order a medium. They are both a perfect fit. I usually order a petite because of my narrow shoulders, however, this sizing is ideal. I also like the longer sleeves and overall length. This sweater does not feel like wool but more like a ribbed cotton. It is very comfortable. I will reserve final judgement until after I wash it.
