Rated 5 out of 5 by Beaniefreak Smart, smooth, classy sweater Hoodie
Not only does this knit hoodie keep me warm, it has lots of style with stripes inside the hood, matching contour lines around the generous pockets and contrasting knit at the sides and bottom hem. I love it in Red. A nice change-up from fleece.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MidnightBlue warm & wooly
I was SO happy to see an all-wool sweater from Bean. They've been in short supply the last several years (except for the cashmere). Cotton is not warm enough for me in the winter, and the mixed fiber ones with acrylic simply do not hold up. I have very old Bean wool sweaters that I still wear but have been very disappointed Bean has gone to mostly blends with acrylic or nylon blends or cotton. The cashmere is always lovely but I also need more rugged wool sweaters!
This sweater is perfect?warm, stylish, comfortable & a good fit. I love that it's slightly felted & all wool & not at all itchy! I wear a size 8 top usually but bought a medium in this as it's rather slim fitting & I don't like things too tight. It's very comfortable over a pima turtleneck. It's the perfect length, a bit longer than other Bean sweaters. Please offer in more colors (purples, teals, deep blues)

Rated 5 out of 5 by eilskd Great product
I got the warm red color & it is beautiful. The quality of wool & construction is excellent. I am petite 5'1" & I got the small because I wanted to layer. The length of sleeve & body is very good; maybe XS would work too. Overall I am very happy with this sweater & recommends it for a very casual look.

Rated 5 out of 5 by gg4Him Cozy sweater
I'm 5'8", normally wear a 10, med. tall, size med. I'm over 60, so my waist is not as slim as used to be, so I ordered this in a large. I'm really glad I did. Love the fit and feel of this sweater. Will for sure be a favorite. I might add that I live in central Texas and we don't have too much really cold weather.

This is a well made sweater--nicely finished and trimmed. I bought it and enjoy the quality of the wool even though it calls for dry cleaning. I am tall and slim, needing an extra small, so it fits well, except for me the sleeves are a bit short (not unusual). I will wear another shirt under it w/longer sleeves.
I look forward to wearing this as a cozy layer with a warm hood when I walk in the cold windy winter weather.
I would give this a 5 but for the sleeve length.

Rated 4 out of 5 by JDAWI Very nice but not as expected
This was a very nice, thick sweater but unfortunately, the "warm red" was more dull than expected - the sweater was covered in little grey fibers. I ordered a size large and it was true to size, but I feel the proportions of the pockets, etc. were off from the photos so it didn't look as nice. A sweater has to be really perfect for me to justify spending this much on it, and this one fell short. I ended up sending it back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by dresdenite Love it!
I bought one last year, but when i went to order a second one they were sold out. I quickly put my order in this year before they were even available. I love this sweater and will be ordering a third one because of all the new colors. It looks great, fit is roomy enough for layering, and is very warm.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MsNiteOwl Highest praise! Wish I bought 3rd color!
What a pleasant surprise from Bean, I'm in love with this Merino wool sweater! It's stylish and fun for all ages, yet uncluttered. I love the stripes inside the hood, the sporty zip pockets with the tabs, ribbed side panels, contrast trim, everything! The fit is true to size and slim, with room for Bean's waffle tee under. Warm for a chilly house, light enough to wear under a coat. Merino wool is wonderful with its refined feel, and it breathes well. It's less scratchy than lambswool, although I still need a soft layer underneath. I first purchased the teal, then had to have plum. Now I wish I bought charcoal too but it's sold out! Bean, you nailed the perfect balance between function and funky style with this one, thank you for a great sweater! I will wear them for years to come!

I came on the site just to review this sweater, not to shop. I am wearing it now. The house is cold because it's 9 degrees outside. I am WARM. This sweater is SO WARM and so comfortable. I absolutely love it. Some hoodies, the hood is too heavy and it keeps pulling the sweater back. Not this one. Very flattering fit.
Only cons - I wish the zipper could be unzipped from the bottom as well when the sweater is zipped. Also it does pill a little, but that doesn't really bother me. It might bother others, though. Oh, also, more colors. A nice oatmeal with darker brown trim would be great.
