Rated 5 out of 5 by birdiegal perfect!
I love the fiber content of this sweater, soft, cozy, and comfortable.
I am a PL, 5'3" and the regular L works just fine. It fits in the shoulders; sleeve and body length are not perfect but entirely acceptable. Agreeing with others, the ribbing is just right: not too tight, not too loose.
My only regret is that I didn't see this item until grey was the only color choice. I will be watching for other colors to return, and adding some colorful scarves in the meantime!

Rated 4 out of 5 by GibbyGip I want more!
i love this sweater! The ribbing on the cuffs and bottom hem is just perfect. The fit is a little loose but not baggy. It's not too short the way some sweaters are. It's very soft and the heather gray is beautiful. I gave it four stars because I don't love the zipper in the back. I'd rather have a plain crew neck. The neck is quite stretchy and I don't need to unzip it. It's not a very warm sweater but I live in California and it's just right for that, or maybe fall and spring in a colder climate. I'm sorry I didn't order it last year when there was a bigger selection. Now there's only one other color left and only in extra small. I hope LL Bean realizes what a gem this sweater is and reorders it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by daffodil Just what I was looking for
This is just the sweater I was looking for, to go well with pants or a skirt, for casual or slightly dressier occasions, and good for early spring as well as winter. I got the green, and it's a very pleasing color. The back zipper means no tugging over your head, which I appreciate.

Rated 5 out of 5 by OnlineTchr Excellent Cotton/Cashmere Sweater
I bought three of these and love them. They fit really well, not binding anywhere but not too loose either. The shoulders sit perfectly. I haven't experienced any pilling at all. I wash with cold water, gentle cycle, and lay them to dry. Lately I have returned several things to Beans, but these are keepers. Definitely recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JATShopper Lovely Sweater
I just received this sweater and I was a bit apprehensive to buy it because of the reviews that were posted. Boy, am I glad I took a chance and ordered this sweater. I usually take a size medium and that is the size I ordered. It fits just perfectly. I have a 36C chest measurement and this gives me plenty of room without looking too blousey. The bottom edge that some complained about being too tight is hard to understand, mine fits loosely but nice. I am not a large women but I am 54 and want something that fits nice and is not too tight or too loose and this fits the bill perfectly. The fabric is wonderfully soft , I hope it washes well. Wish it would come in black because I would definately buy it.

Agree with other reviewers about the fit. Loved the zipper - something different! That little stylish touch was the main reason I bought this sweater. It fit up top (shoulders and bust) but the bottom snugs up to your hips and in-between is a lot of loose fabric that just hangs there and makes your middle look bigger. Had to return it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BonitaJay just lovely!
I bought two, pink and grey. They fit nicely and are not boxy nor clingy. The sweaters wash nicely and line dry quickly. I had to iron before wearing, but it's worth it. The back zipper is nice for the obvious reason: no messed up hairdo.

Rated 5 out of 5 by George1133X Great Value on Cashmere!
I gave this sweater to a girlfriend for her birthday and she loved it.
You can't go wrong with cashmere; it is the warmest and softest wool there is.
A good value for the price being asked.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Maeshawn Great sweater!
I like the fact that this sweater doesn't cling to my waist, and I can scrunch it up to camouflage the 'old ladies' midriff bulge. It's soft and warm, nice sleeve length. Put it through the gentle cycle on washer, laid flat to dry. Didn't shrink and didn't stretch out. Will buy another.
