Rated 5 out of 5 by McKensie Fantastic sweater
This sweater is just what I needed and wanted. The sizing is right on. I am 135# 5'6" Normally a medium and that is what I purchased. The sleeve length is perfect. I purchased the grey and the blue and I love both. Haven't wash or dry cleaned yet but I expect not problems. I have a Bean cashmere from years back which is still holding up great, but I found the older one not to have the great fit and style to your body that this new one has.

After doing considerable shopping last winter for a comfortable, afforable cashmere sweater I discoverred the LLBean selection. However, they were sold out in my size. This was around last Christmas. I started early this year and I received my black extra large cashmere sweater that is just beautiful. The wool is soft and the care is easy. I am somewhat big, but the extra large fit me perfectly. I love it!

This sweater is soft and comfy, just wish the bottom band was a bit tighter so it could be "bloused" better. Not fond of it falling loose at hips. Glad to find a crew neck that isn't heavy and bulky and can be layered.

Rated 2 out of 5 by ElsieJ Nice cashmere but too long
This is A nice sweater but way too long. I wish LL Bean would give the length of clothing as most catalogues do."Falls to hip" or "falls to high hip" doesn't answer the question. Whose hip? A 5'10" model? Pictures don't answer the question either. Please start measuring your clothing from shoulder down. It would be so helpful to know whether something is 23" or 27".

I bought four of these for myself and two for my daughter. They fit perfectly for me in a small (I'm a very slender person and five feet four inches) and my daughter in a medium. The dark teal is my favorite color as it has more green than blue in it. They are just the right thickness to be cuddly soft and not too heavy. I only wish there was a navy blue.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Stewiegirl Light, warm and a good fit
I recently bought 2 of these crewnecks - one in grey and the other in the berry color, which I think is more like aubergine. The latter I plan to dress up with a silk scarf that has that accent color. The size is good - a large works best in tops for me. I'm looking forward to fall weather to start wearing them, although on a cool night they will be great in any season.

Have loved Bean cashmere for a long time, typically in black. The last one has mended armholes but is still wearable as a layer on windly winter walkies Finally replaced it this year in Plum. Different (lovely) color but the same quality one expects from LLBean. Perfect weight, perfect fit (for me), and worth every cent.

This cashmere top is not up to par with the quality I expect from LLBean. Sorely disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CashmereCrazy Poor Color Selection
LL Bean - Your cashmere sweaters are beautiful, so much nicer than those offered in dept. stores, soft to the skin, easy to launder, simply perfect. I'd like to order 3 more, but your color selection is disappointing. Please add classic colors: Navy, Red, Brown, Forest Green. Your choices of Berry, Aqua, Flag Blue are just not something I want for years to come. V-Neck has been discontinued? Please get it back! Thanks for this beautiful sweater.
