Rated 5 out of 5 by LLBeannette Cabled cashmere is a more tailored fitting turtle
This is a very beautiful cashmere sweater if you like the cabled fit. It is actually soft but fits much closer due to the cables. Would advise using a camisole or lightweight sleeveless cotton tee underneath for added comfort. The blue sweater is beautiful -- called "navy" it is really more of a dark royal blue -- much prettier than dark navy but not quite as light as a true royal blue (another reviewer mentioned sapphire blue -- she is correct). I would recommend ordering one size up unless you like a tailored fit and have slender arms, as the cables due tend to add more "cling" to the sleeves and it is not a relaxed fit. Overall a very pretty and soft sweater -- very beautiful and striking dark royal blue color .

Rated 2 out of 5 by llbeaniebabe It was too scratchy!
I love good cashmere and am always looking for sales. I ordered the sweater and what a disappointment! The turtleneck clings to your skin and is so scratchy! I returned it before I developed a rash. Yes, it was that bad.

I bought this, in black, as a gift for my daughter, and had it sent directly to her. I haven't seen it yet, but she reports that it's beautiful, fits perfectly, and is her new favorite garment.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Lex024 Not very soft cashmere
This was a beautiful sweater, especially in the color red. I find wool warm but too itchy, so I'm always looking for cashmere. But this item was not soft, too itchy to feel like cashmere. I had to return it, especially since it is a turtleneck. What a shame.

Rated 2 out of 5 by MDpyrmom First time I've been disappointed w/ LLB cashmere
I love cable knits and I love cashmere so I was excited to see this turtleneck offered. I ordered it using some of my $10 promo gift cards but even w/ the discount, I think it just isn't worth the price. Although the color (true navy) was very nice---almost a sapphire blue---and the fit was just right, it was just not soft as my other LLB cashmere sweaters. It was almost like a lambswool when I first put it on. I even tried fluffing it up in the dryer (no heat). Maybe the cable knit makes the cashmere seem not so soft? I don't know but in any case, it is unfortunately going back.
