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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Mkfj Disappointing product
I love the weight of this sweater but it pilled excessively within a few wears, to the point that it looked awful. I expected this to be something i could wear for many seasons, like lots of LLBean products. not this one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Terp115 Nice Shade of Red
I was looking for a sweater in a nice warm red for winter, because cooler reds don't suit me. This is a good warm shade, but not too orange. I also like the style of the pockets and the trim, which really give it a pop, stylewise.
I normally wear a small or extra small, but got the medium as that was the smallest size left in red. Because it is a cardigan/hoodie, the larger size looks good, and the sleeves are long enough, which is nice (I am almost 5'8", so sleeve length can be an issue at times).
The wool is light and soft, good for layering.
All in all, a nice addition to my winter wardrobe. Would love to see other sweater styles in this color.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Dlbj poor quality wool
Sure wish I read the reviews before buying this sweater. I've only worn it a few times and the sleeves and body have so much pilling, it looks terrible. When I spend so much on a sweater I want it to look good for a long time. I'm sending it back. And I really wanted to like it.
