Rated 3 out of 5 by Bostonsnow Great quality, runs small for a sweater
Loved this Lily Bay V-Neck Cardigan Sweater color Blue; one of the better quality clothing items purchased from LL Bean. I ended up returning my usual size and attempting to exchange for a size up so I could fit a Bean long sleeve t-shirt underneath this cardigan-- without another layer I found the arms were very tight on this sweater, but when we went to order up the blue was sold out in every size.

This sweater runs large and really long. The fair isle design is attractive. I hand wash it according to the care instruction and it sheds short fur strands during the wash. The shedding is the only nuisance.

This is a beautiful cardigan with nice quality which goes perfectly with A pencil skirt or more casual pants styles. Just a bit large. But not a major problem.

Rated 4 out of 5 by AbbySara Lily Bay V-Neck Cardigan Sweater, Fair Isle
This is one of my favorite sweaters of this season. I purchased the heather berry color (fair isle) in M regular and found that it is soft & warm. It is very flattering for long torso women (like me). This sweater hang perfectly at my hip. The berry color is very beautiful. It looks much more better than online. I never had a problem with buttons since I use it like a tunic sweater and never unbutton it during the day. For references, I'm 5"6' 135 lb.
I love this sweater so much then I decided to buy a second one on in grey color (fair isle). That is quite a disappointment. The grey cardigan starts pilling after the first day I wore! It is strange that the first sweater I purchased didn't pill too much like this one. However, I bought it on sale so I'll keep it. For that sale price I can accept the pilling.

Love this sweater! I bought the gray with blue/green accents. Its very pretty and soft. It's warm without being bulky. I ordered my usual size medium and it fit perfectly. I am 5 71/2, and about 145 lbs. I wore it today with jeans and a long sleeve blue t-shirt. I chose to leave it unbuttoned, but I could have buttoned it up. I didn't see any signs of pilling or shedding. I am very please with my purchase, especially because I got on sale!

This is now my "sweater". I grab it for any quick trip out the door. I got it in charcoal and finds it go with anything. Makes a drab top look great.
I have so many sweaters that will still be new next year, this is definitely my go to item.
Please put this back on daily markdown, I need the indigo.............
As noted by others, the buttons were tough the first couple of times, now button easily. Soft as a flannel blanket. Great fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JulieTeacher Longer length is great!
I am a teacher and I love this sweater. I do lots of writing on a whiteboard, and I have no worries about the sweater riding up in back. The color is soft and the wool light but warm. A winner!

Rated 5 out of 5 by SPARTYrocks Solid color, cozy, versatile
I like this sweater the more I wear it. Helps keep me warm, but not overheated. At first, I wasn't sure about the material, but it is surprisingly comfortable. Nice enough for church, just depends on what you wear with it. Pilling is no more an issue with this than any other sweater, really. I haven't had any problems with the buttons, either, as mentioned by others, and I have this in three colors. Happy I jumped on the daily special.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CooneyGram LOVE, LOVE, LOVE THIS CARDIGAN!
I have this sweater in the indigo blue - it is a fabulous color to wear with jeans. It's denim blue and you just don't find that color in sweaters. It is very flattering and I like the longer length....not too long but does come down over the hips. I just ordered two more and one in the hot pink at the 2-a day markdown. I AM THRILLED TO BE GETTING MORE OF THESE. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT.

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.
