I have always wanted a cashmere cardigan and I ended up buying two (light brown and charcoal) after receiving the first. I dress in layers as I travel constantly. This sweater is soft and comfortable. I bought neutrals so that I could pair them with almost everything. So glad that I could finall... Read More

    1. The higher the gauge number, the finer (as in “thinner”) the yarn. Gauge reflects how many stitches it takes to knit (usually) a 10 cm wide pattern; the thinner the yarn, the more stitches are required. This has nothing to do with softness of a yarn. This cardigan, being of 21-gauge, is a thin, lightweight sweater (nothing to be considered for -20F winters but something to be enjoyed for layering in +60F).
    2. Johnstons of Elgin, through centuries of manufacturing, has earned its reputation as a maker of world’s finest cashmeres for a reason: its yarns are superior to others’. While, at first, this sweater may not resemble the softness in touch of the Chinese cashmere and it feels more like merino wool, that’s a good thing! Once you wash this JofE sweater (BTW wash it only by hand or in a true hand-wash cycle in lukewarm water with very delicate detergents and lie it flat to dry), these long strands of yarn will bloom afterwards (“blooming” is a knitting term for threads to loosen up, open up in a wash) giving you the softness expected from cashmere. Now, you can enjoy wearing (and washing) JofE sweaters for 10, even 20 years with them continue to look fine throughout the years, not pilling up, not stretching, not fading. Try doing that with lower-end cashmere – you’ll understand and appreciate the reasons why Johnstons of Elgin has the reputation it has.
    3. I think that these cardigans are made true to size – I’m speaking only about size XS and S, I don’t know how M, L, etc. measure. I’m 34”-25”-35” in chest, waist and hips respectively (5’4” and 100 lb) and I favor size XS but I’m equally comfortable wearing these cardigans in size S as layering over a blouse, etc.
    4. Colors are somewhat off from what they appear on Sierra’s site; midnight blue hints on gray-ink, sapphire is more of a jade (nothing of the purplish navy in it, unfortunately for me), marine is heathery strong aqua/watery color, and sand is simply the best: it’s a delicate camel color.
    5. I couldn’t be more thankful to Sierra for making these Johnstons of Elgin sweaters available at great discounts. 5***** for Sierra and 5***** for these JofE cardigans.

    This sweater is a beautiful color (marine) and a very soft and luxurious fabric. It was just the right weight for Wi. Spring and summer weather. I should have read the description more carefully, because it clearly stated this item was fitted! I ordered an extra large. Too snug for me, and sadly I had to return it!

    It feels so soft; is warm, and I really like the color. It goes with a lot of my clothes.

    Beautiful lines, exactly as the photo shows; but if you know really good cashmere you will not be impressed with the quality of this garment--somewhat harsh to the touch for such a fine wool. Surprising given all the fuss in the description.

    I ordered this in a sz. Large. I wouldn't really be able to wear it comfortably over a long-sleeved shirt but that is not what I got it for, so the fit is perfect for me. The length of the sleeve is good and it fits as in the picture. It is not oversized at all, so you might want to order size up unless you want it snug. It is nice and dressy looking and dresses up what you wear with it.

    • Answer I wish I could help but, unfortunately, I haven't bought this sweater in gray (not yet, at least :) so I don't know how it looks like but I wouldn't be surprised if this year's gray is somewhat different from the last year's (basing it on the navy from the last year and this year's navy).
      I noticed that this year's colors are somewhat more muted, not as intense as the last year's ones and I would be guessing (but that's only my guess) that this year's gray would also be more mellow, maybe a tet lighter than the last year's. And I would expect a little heathering in it as well. Best wishes,

    • Answer I often find the actual colors of the products are quite different from the catalog/email clothing shown, and just take my chances. If I don't like the color, I simply return the outfit.
