Rated 2 out of 5 by Shopper923 Disappointing
I happily purchased this item when it went on sale in the store after the holidays. I really like the color (soft taupe), feel of the fabric, the striping inside of the hood, and the zip pockets. Unfortunately, the pilling started after the first wear. I took it to dry cleaners after the second wear, hoping that would help. I wore it for the third time this past week, and the pilling is very significant. I am very disappointed in the quality, and I now have a sweater that I will only wear at home while still having to dry clean it. Fortunately I purchased it on sale. If I had paid full price I would definitely return it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by suzannereviews Attractive and warm, but fabric pills
I love the color and warmth of the sweater, but after wearing it only twice, the material become pilled and worn under the arms. I will likely keep it to wear as an at-home layer, but it's much too expensive for this purpose.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 1Baker Looks like a sweatshirt but classy like a sweater
I wanted something I could wear while snowshoeing to stay warm and yet a little classy while our group enjoyed a meal afterward. It has that sweatshirt look but the feel of a sweater. It's lightweight, warm, and isn't bulky

I bought one for my daughter at Christmas and she loved it!! bBut I loved it too and had to have one. It's a great fit... Nicely casual and cozy warm. Thin enough to where under you winter coat without adding bulk. The brown taupe/heather goes with everything, black, blue, brown, army green.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Canuckian So disappointed
I bought two of these sweaters. Loved the style, was very soft BUT after wearing it a few times it was covered in pills. Absolutely covered in pills. I haven't even washed them once and they are garbage. They are not fit to be seen in public now. I think the issue is that the wool fibres are too short.

I really like this sweater. It is soft, warm, and stylish, but it does not fit me well. I am 5'2" tall and a medium in this sweater is like a too long tunic reaching my thigh. L.L. Bean please consider petite sizing for this sweater next season.

Rated 3 out of 5 by ShetlandShepherdess Love the color, feel and warmth BUT
This is such a great sweater but it pills especially on the sleeves. I bought it so I could be a little "dressed up" when I go out because I work in construction and get tired of wearing jeans and sweatshirts all the time. Now I can wear it for work because it looks so old and used. Although it's a wonderful sweater, it costs too much to get ruined so quickly (3 - 4 months).

Rated 5 out of 5 by CurlyGurl Excellent sweater
This sweater is warm, soft and cozy. I love the zip-up pockets, and the stripes inside the hood. I bought 3 colors and am so glad I did!

Rated 5 out of 5 by nlnh great sweater
This is a wonderful sweater. I bought it in extra large and wear it as a jacket. It is lightweight and warm. Drapes well and layers nicely. On moderate days it is warm enough to use as a coat.

Rated 2 out of 5 by 3xlagranny2 Beautiful but flawed
I loved the fit, the soft non-itchy feel, and red color of this sweater and really would have wanted to keep it. Unfortunately I could not get the zipper to engage at the bottom to zip it up..So back it went.
