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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by redfoxglove Lightweight and extra warm
As compared to similar sweaters that I own, this one has the welcome slightly extra length to cover the upper hips. The sleeves are not overlong, which seems to be the current fad. These are plenty long. The only reason I give this 4/5 is because I don't care so much for the stripes in the hood. They make the sweater a little more trendy, not so much trendy, but kind of what I associate with an immature style ethos. It's not enough to discredit the sweater but I just wish the hood, which frames the face, was a solid instead of a stripe which detracts from my earrings and lipstick! LOL

LLBean really hits the bulls eye with Snow Pass Wool Sweater.
Runs half-size to size large.
Why wear boring sweaters? Contrast stitching is a terrific detail. Stripes at neck are smart: highlight wearer's face.
Get it before it's gone. I predict a sell-out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by missmoxie Great quality
This is a wonderful sweater. Very well made, high quality, and attention to detail . Fit was 'spot on'. I bought the grey and the color contrast trim looks great. The merino is very soft and comfortable against the skin. I highly recommend this product.

Now here's a sweater that's worth the price! It always feels like the perfect warmth...because the lightweight Merino wool breathes so well. For anyone who dresses casually but appreciates good quality, this is perfect. The teal color is deep but also vibrant. It does run long for a petite person like me, but I think it still looks just fine.

I like this sweater very much! It's a little more stylish than llbean's usual offerings--a nice change. I bought it two weeks ago, and I've worn it both weekends, and often for an hour or two after work: it looks great, feels casual and comfy and slightly hip without being silly...

This sweater fits true to size and is stylish. I wear it with light weight long sleeved t shirts and it keeps me warm. It is perfect for fitting under jackets and coats. I am petite, under 5 feet 121 lbs and the XS fits well (aside from having to roll up the sleeves). The teal color is beautiful and I may purchase another one. Please make this in a petite length! Another bonus: it is not itchy.
