Rated 3 out of 5 by oneillortho Runs a little large
Quality of the Cashmere is fine, but I like my sweaters to be a little more form fitting. I usually wear a medium, but if you like your sweater to less "frumpy" I would order a size smaller. I machined washed it the first time on delicate and it came out just fine. It still fits fine, it did not shrink

I've been coveting a cashmere sweater for some time, finally sprung when the price was about half. The ordering process was easy, delivery right on time, the fit spot on (Lg petite). My only minor, trivial quibble is that the red is not terribly "fiery" as depicted, however it will pass. I shop a lot at LL Bean, for their quality, which is usually high.

Rated 5 out of 5 by vars truly classic
I ordered this in the black, liked it so much I ordered the gray (patiently waiting while it's on backorder). I wanted the sold out sable and was happy to see it reappear last week. I wore it already as it's a cool May week. These sweaters are such a classic fit. They hang beautifully. The cashmere seems to be as soft and as of good quality as the ones I've had for years. The best part is I could order a petite size and not have to fold back the cuffs. I've washed the black one and it turned out fine. These sweaters are ones I expect my daughter to still be wearing years from now!

I bought two of these sweaters. one in a beautiful cornflower blue and one is a very pretty grey. they fit great. felt great. after two wears I washed them by hand, in woolite. dried laying down on my towel on a table. I went to wear them again and they both had holes. the blue had several holes, the grey had several holes. for the money they cost, they are not a good quality. I cannot tell you how disappointed I was after spending top dollar and not being able to enjoy them. I sometimes wear them under a flannel shirt so you cannot see the holes, as I hate to throw them out after all the money they cost. this is the third time I have bought cashmere sweaters from LLBean and they developed holes. its not something that you can get repaired either. I have never had a problem with anything else I have purchased at LLBean. only these cashmere sweaters.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SofiaMaria Excellent fit, beautiful cashmere
I was on the lookout for a well-fitting cashmere sweater of good quality that I could use in every season and this one is a keeper! I bought the Peony Heather, which is a nice pink color closer to the coral end of the spectrum but still definitively pink. I chose XS which is my regular sweater size and this fits perfectly; snug without being tight. It hits me at the hips, about 2' below my belly button, about an inch below the waistband of my pants. My only wish is that the neckline were more open, but the shape is exactly what I expected based on the photo and description. I am very satisfied and may buy it in more colors. A soft, delicate, refined sweater that works great by itself or over a button-down or under a blazer or cardigan.

Rated 3 out of 5 by happagirl Nice but doesn't stay pretty
I wanted to love this sweater. I own the full spectrum of cashmere, from high quality to low quality. This is in the middle. My major gripe is that it pills easily and is difficult to keep looking nice. I wear cashmere for business so I have to brush this with my lint brush after each wear. Still it doesn't look polished and never has.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KCZ41 Mine was great
I guess there's a lot of variability with this sweater because mine wasn't itchy, and my sleeves and overall length were generous even though I'm 5'10".
Please make this in a V-neck with more colors in the women's sizes...I would buy a dozen of them.

The neck is way too itchy. I took it off hours ago and my neck is still itching from it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by KylafromCA Nice enough but not cozy
I ordered the classic cashmere crewneck in the teal, size 1X. I currently wear a size 18 and am 5'6" tall. It fits perfectly. I wish the neck was a tad lower because it is kind of uncomfortable, especially since it is more scratchy than cozy and when the neck is so high, my undertank doesn't protect the skin. I wanted to order a size up so it would be roomier, but my husband says it would look frumpy. I guess it fits just right. I also wish it was longer- it currently hits right above my hip bone. Overall it is a nice sweater, but I was hoping for a bit more luxury for the price.
