Rated 5 out of 5 by Alabama123 Comfortable and warm
I loved this sweater. I am wearing it as I type this. I am 5' 6" and weigh 135 lb. and usually wear a size small. I bought a size medium and it fits well over a long sleeve shirt. I have washed and dried it twice and found it comes out just like new. It can be worn for everyday for great warmth or with dress pants for a nice look.
It has not faded and will retain it's shape while it is worn.

Rated 4 out of 5 by cactuscrazy A little long, but heavy & warm
I also found this sweater to run a little long, as did other reviewers. I ordered a size larger based on some previous reviews...and I placed it in the dryer after I washed it (which I typically don't do with cotton sweaters) and this has helped be just the right fit! I am 5'7" and ordered it in the beige color and am very pleased with the quality. It is a nice, heavy sweater, so take note if you are looking for something lighter. All in all, it was a great price on sale & I plan to purchase again in another color.

Rated 3 out of 5 by ceekee Way too long
This sweater is a good 5" to 6" longer than the description or the picture. It is a tunic length - NOT the low hip it is described and pictured as. And I am 5'8", so it isn't because I'm short. Will be returning it.
Otherwise it is nice. Soft, plush knit. It is a heavier cable knit sweater, if that is what you need. I really like the split neck. Like most everything except the tunic length.

I absolutely love this Sweater! I ordered it in Red and have received so many compliments. I ordered a medium size and it fits perfectly. I was it in cold water on delicate cycle and lay flat to dry! Just ordered another sweater in pink!! Thank you LL Bean for the great quality!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by JEM4612 Great quality, great fit
I bought this sweater in Classic Emerald late winter of 2014 and loved it so much that I bought another one last week (French Blue). I have received numerous compliments when wearing both of them.
They fit as expected and are warm, but not super bulky. The one that I bought last winter has been worn and washed numerous times and still looks good. No pilling and no noticeable fading.
I would recommend this sweater.

Rated 5 out of 5 by friscowoman Just what I was looking for
I really love these sweaters. The weight is great for cold San Francisco winters -- er, I mean summers! -- the fit and styling are perfect for me (I am 5'6", 130 pounds, and I got Mediums), and I think the split neck looks good over nice blouses. I also like the longer length and its coverage of my backside!

Rated 5 out of 5 by friscowoman Great fit
I am 5'6", 135 pounds, and I think the Medium fits me perfectly. I really love the split neck and do think it looks good over blouses. I also like the tunic length -- don't mind if some of my hind quarters are covered -- and think the weight is just right for our cold San Francisco winters -- I mean summers!

Rated 5 out of 5 by MTOD Cute, good weight.
I was thrilled to find this on the 2-A-Day special, and even more thrilled when it arrived. I like a long sweater, because I don't like it when my shirts hang out the bottom, so this was great. It's also thick and comfy. It looks really nice over turtlenecks, and I think it looks nice over most regular shirts too. I'm 5'6", 140, 36D and M fits perfectly. It's big enough to fit the girls without looking frumpy. My mother saw me wearing this and got super jealous, but she's a plus size and so her size isn't available. Hint, hint.

Rated 3 out of 5 by grammie23 Disappointed
I was looking for a light weight white sweater. This is not a light weight sweater. In the past l.l. Bean had a great light weight cotton sweater but I'm unable to find it. It was also long. If it was available in petite I might consider it for a fall/winter sweater as I like the split neck style. My search continues for a light weight white sweater.

Rated 1 out of 5 by skimore Too much of a good thing
Style is long, tunic length. Fit was too generous. Size small was too much sweater for my 5'5" 130# frame.
