Wonderful quality cashmere, perfect in every way. But the shape did not flatter my figure - it looked like a man's sweater rather than one made for a woman. I returned it with regret because it really is a quality product.

This is a lovely, soft cashmere sweater that is well made. I bought two and found there was a significant variation in size, especially in the length of sleeve. However, for the price it's a great deal I gave four stars instead of five because the weight of the sweater is very light. Also the arms are slim, making it almost impossible to wear a long sleeved blouse under the sweater. I wear the sweater over a silk base layer , which works great.

This sweater is soft and warm - as somebody mentioned before, the sleeves are a bit short - so possibly order a larger size. When I washed mine I blocked the sleeves to be just a tad longer and am fine with the length.

This is a beautiful sweater that is extremely well made, not thin as some cashmeres are, but lightweight. It can be dressed up, using it over a nice collared blouse for work, or with a scarf at the neckline, or even under a leather bomber jacket for a nice sophisticated yet casual look. You get what you pay for, and this sweater, albeit a little pricey, will last a long time if properly cared for. Love it.

I was a bit disappointed by the extremely loose knit on this sweater since I'm accostomed to heavier cashmere. But the craftsmanship seems fine and the design is good. I gave this as a gift, and the recipient was more pleased than I would have been...

This is a quality cashmere garment. Some folks have noted they think Johnstons of Elgin sweaters are not as substantial as years previous, too lightweight for the investment; but this is an overall trend and Johnstons are always superior to their competitors. "Substantial" cashmere sweaters these days might be available in a designer's boutique for many hundreds of dollars and they probably are from Johnstons of Elgin. This sweater is lovely with rich colors, excellent fit and craftsmanship - a rare find. Sierra Traders is offering an exceptional sweater for a bargain price.
