It's not my first sweater from JofE, and I suspect not the last one, yet the yarn used in this sweater surpasses all others I have. The yarn used here is VERY thick; I would not be surprised if it turned out to be an 8-ply yarn. Must I say it is heavenly soft? Why then only 4 stars? Because I have a short torso and this sweater just "swallows" it with only my neck and head, hands, and legs sticking out. This sweater style looks the best on me when paired with leggings, but leggings are not my style. So, in all fairness, it is I who should be rated at 4 stars (on a good day) and the sweater at 5. I am 34-25-37" in chest-waist-hips respectively and size S is what I got in this sweater; I personally think that my 37" in hips is at a borderline between size S and M for this particular sweater. As for the colour, I got it in "glacier" and I love it; it's kind of aquamarine blue and pairs very well with black and all sorts of gray, and will look superb come January and February. It is a casual-style sweater for very cold days.

This sweater was really expensive, but so far I think it's worth the price - I've only worn it once since it hasn't been cold enough for such a heavy-duty cashmere sweater. I was a little surprised at the thickness of the yarn in this sweater which makes the sweater look somewhat "rustic" or "casual." But I expect to wear it a lot since I live in cold New England.

Though on sale it was still a very expensive treat to myself. I am happy with my purchase so far as I have not worn it yet.(Summer in New Orleans). I have been trying to purchase Cashmere [*] so this was a good start. It reminds me of the well home knit sweaters my aunt made us when we were young. Very nice
