Rated 1 out of 5 by redone2870 Pilling and over sized
I was very disappointed in this sweater. It was not up to Bean's usual standards. It started pilling the first time I wore it. I had to throw it away after two wears. It was also gigantic with no shaping at all. I am a medium in most clothes and a large in LL Bean sizes. I was really surprised at the poor quality.

Rated 3 out of 5 by coldincalif Thin and tenuous button holes to deal with
The one I received in size XL regular was a good fit for me but the sleeves were a bit short which is odd for me as they tend to be too long in XL regular shirts, jackets, etc.
The color is very pretty (violet).
However, it is a tremendous chore to do/undo the buttons on this and the holes are very small.
Overall quality is not at all impressive.
Will be sending this one back.

I loved this sweater. The fit, feel and color were great. However, this item must be either washed with care or dry cleaned. My husband unfortunately decided to 'help' and washed it. It shrank quite a bit. I am sorry I cannot wear it any longer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by CarolCola Smooth lines,flattering shape in a light sweater
I have two of these sweaters. I wear one of them all the time as they look a bit dressier than my wool cardigans. I like that they hang long enough to keep me warm to mid thigh. My only :-( on these is they pill more than I would have expected for a flat weave. The V neck means they can go well over varying necklines of a shirt underneath.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ceeea Great layering piece :)
Works best over crewneck tees or collared tops, ie. oxford style shirts and turtlenecks.

I ordered the berry heather, which has the pattern across the chest. It's really pretty but not girly, just right for someone my age--or I guess any age. I find the wool soft. I love the longer length, which is so flattering for taller women or those with longer torsos. The pattern and V-neck draw the eye up and flatter the face. Kudos to L.L. Bean for this one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by stlouisteacher online color very misleading
I ordered the charcoal, which looked like a medium gray online. However, it is almost black. I will be returning this because of the color.

Rated 2 out of 5 by JennyO90 Pretty Color, scratchy material....
I ordered this cardigan in the violet. The color was beautiful, however i did not like the fabric. I didn't realize it had lambswool in the fabric when i purchased it. I found it to be a bit scratchy. The cardigan seems to be a bit delicate also, after washing it once and letting it air dry the fabric seemed to already be on the verge of pilling. I am returning it for something a bit more durable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lifesthebeach Lily Bay V-Neck Cardigan Sweater Fair Isle
I bought both colors in size x small. I like my sweaters more formfitting, but I decided to keep these cardigans anyway as they hang nicely at my hips. My husband and son both liked them on me too. The fair isle design is so attractive on the cardigan and the colors are flattering. Great quality material also. I thought is might be a little itchy, but after I wore it for a day with a light tee under it, it is not itchy. It will keep you warm and comfy, but not too warm.
