The 1912 FIsherman's Heritage Sweater is warm and comfortable. The color was a little more yellow than off-white as it appears on my monitor, but I still really love the sweater. After a couple of wears straight out of the box, it still sheds a bit but not so much to prevent me from loving it. The wool is soft; I have only the slightest amount of itching when it touches my neck (and my skin is very sensitive).
I really love the weight of this garment. It is heavy on the coldest days but does not feel hugely bulky. It's perfect for a cold winter's day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by WAtraveler Quality knit - Cozy warm
I purchased this made in Ireland hand knit sweater with Bean coupons. It's a bit pricey, but worth the price for a hand knit quality sweater. I do some knitting and this sweater is well crafted. The natural color is very creamy with a warm color tone. There is more color intensity than an off-white color. I like the weight - it's good for indoor warmth and outdoors on a cool, but not cold, day. I purchased a large and the sweater hangs straight and looks good buttoned or unbuttoned.

This sweater is unlike the other Irish sweater I own, in that it has a more form-fitting fit and is not as roomy. The shoulders fit well; overall I'm pleased with the fit. I wear a size 12-14, and the large fits me. The wool is soft, and I am pleased with the dark gray color. It is a warm sweater. I wore it to work, where it is always quite cold. As far as wool weight goes, it is not quite as heavy as some traditional Aran sweaters, but it is still very warm. There is one thing I don't like - the buttonholes. The buttonholes are not stitched. They are knitted openings in the wool weave. I don't know how well the buttonholes will hold up; perhaps they'll be OK.

Nice classic sweater. I bought the gray color and can dress it up or down. Looks wonderful layered over a white pinpoint oxford shirt with black pants. Beautiful cable knit pattern. Thanks, LL Bean!

I really like this sweater. I got it for Christmas from my husband who loves L.L. Bean! This is a very classic sweater that will not go out of style. I have worn it several times and love the look and fit.

I purchased it in grey and it is a lovely soft wool sweater. It is very warm, and classy. I really like it. However, I had an Aran sweater from Ireland that I wore for 30 yrs until moths got to it. It was hand made and much better quality. I think this LL Bean sweater is a little overpriced.

This sweater is so soft and warm. It's perfect for this time of year in Georgia. I get many compliments on it. Of course it has that LL Bean quality.

This is a lovely classic sweater. The fit is true to size and the wool very soft and thick making it both attractive and warm. It is also very popular and the cream version was sold out well before Christmas.

I'd wanted this sweater for a while and finally made the leap to order it. It was backordered but well worth the wait. I ordered the grey in a small. I'm 5'6" and 135# and the small fit perfectly - there's plenty of room to wear a long sleeve shirt underneath. The color was just as shown in the picture. It wears well. I love it and know I'll enjoy it for years!
