Very smooth fitting, nice drape, fairly heavy, slim not bulky look...

I wasn't expecting much for the price and was pleasantly surprised. I usually try to buy 100% cotton or wool, and avoid synthetic fabrics, but over the last few years they seem to be getting more and more expensive and the quality of the material is not always as dependable as it once was (and aside from sweaters that are designed to be sheer and light, I don't want to sweaters to be see-through! these aren't...) These sweaters looked as if they would be ideal for work, and the price was excellent, so I figured why not?. I had never heard of this brand (in fact the tags on the sweaters I received do not actually show the Cable & Gauge logo--the labels are for Pointelle, which I have also never heard of).
I live in California, so I don't really need a jacket or coat very often, but I reach for sweaters and wraps often so I needed to add a few new things to my wardrobe, and of course I looked here on STP first! I purchased both the grey and black versions and these sweaters feel substantial without being too heavy and the finish is smooth, with a fine silky gauge. The fit is true to size--they fit well through the shoulder and sleeves and the overall length is great--just about at the knee for me (I am 5'4") and feels very comfortable. I was concerned they would not be breathable, but they are fine so far. The sweaters look flattering (slimming) and they will be perfect for cooler weather when I want some warmth but I'm not quite ready to pull out the heavy wool sweaters yet...
it is still warm here so these haven't been worn much yet, and I haven't washed them either, so I can't really talk about durability or how well they will hold up over time, but so far, so good--I like them, they seem well made and are an affordable option...
