I loved the grey and red color and hoped the cashmere would be softer than just a wool sweater. The feel of the knit is ok, but not as soft as I'd expected. If it's got cashmere, it's not a lot of it. I kept the sweater, but will not wear it for anything but camping.
The cut is square and boxy - it's very much a man's sweater. Not sure how it will fit after it's washed. If it shrinks any shorter, I won't be able to wear it.
I like the neckline and the functional buttons in front, but you'll definitely want to wear a long sleeved (thermal) shirt between you and the sweater.
