Rated 5 out of 5 by Sofie Great sweater
As was suggested by at least one other reviewer, I ordered this in a size up from my usual LL Bean sizing. It is perfect! The weight is perfect for Spring or Autumn, and the marled gray looks great with almost everything except anything from the "brown family" of colors.. Very happy purchaser.

Rated 4 out of 5 by luscious More colors, please!
Nice sweater, nice weight. (I only got the solids, not the stripes.) But more colors, please -- a nice dark green, a cranberry, etc. Enough with the pastels and light colors, even in the summer! (LLBean used to make a very similar sweater but in a silk/cotton knit that was glossy and incredibly long-lasting! )

Rated 3 out of 5 by bjean174 nice weight, but is snug and shrinks!
I really liked this sweater, but should have washed it first to see if it would shrink - it does, unless you really stretch and block it as it is drying. I did wash in cold water and put in dryer for just a few minutes. It is fitted, so if you like your cardigans loose, order a bigger size. Very warm and heavy weight. Loved the teal color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SassySal My favorite sweater!
I already have three of these in different colors and am getting a fourth today. I love this sweater and hope LL Bean never stops selling it.

I already have two marled cotton cardigans, one in pink and one in blue. They are absolutely beautiful with an almost silky looking finish. The blue striped cardigan is on its way. I can't wait. As a sizing reference, I am 5'5", 116 pounds, and the XSmall fits perfectly. Some customers seemed to be a little disappointed with its somewhat boxy style. I happen to love that style, especially since the sweater is shorter than most sweaters, hitting slightly below my hip bones. Also, the sleeve length is just right. Paired with nice flats, LL Bean's classy Stay Shape jeans and a string of pearls I feel dressy enough to go to a nice restaurant or a play. Needless to say, I highly recommend this cardigan!

The color of this cardigan is really lovely (mallard green), and the quality is outstanding, so it looks amazing in my closet. It is a whole different story when I wear it, it is boxy, short, with short sleeves and just makes me look ugly. It is my wear-at-home and -the-yard-work cardigan, I'd not risk wearing it in public.

Rated 4 out of 5 by comfortmostimportant heavier than you might think
The color blue of this sweater is lovely and it goes with navy and denim. The sleeves were a bit long but I washed and dried it in the dryer on low heat and the sleeves shortened. The whole sweater shrunk a little but in length, not width. On second washing it didn't shrink any more. I believe the label says to air dry, but I don't have the space nor patience for that. I'm very glad I bought it.

I thought this sweater ran a little smaller than most LLBean large tops. It's uncomfortably tight for me in the shoulders and arms so I am sending it back, even though I really think it's beautiful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by chocolatemoose2 It is perfect!!
I love this cardigan! The fit could not have been more perfect. I ordered one and loved it so much that I ordered 2 more (lemon, island coral, wisteria blue) back in February.
I am 5'6" 118 lbs and size S fits well. The lemon color is in XS because it was the only size available then. Since I loved that lemon color so much I just had to have it. The XS turned out to be a tiny bit fitted but still very comfortable.
The sweater is substantial with good weight and the colors are sooooo pretty. It looks really cute with jeans. I cannot wait for the Texas weather to turn cooler so I can wear them again.

This cardigan is very beautiful, well made, and warm. I feel that it does fit a bit large though. I would recommend going one size down.
