Customer Reviews Of:
Johnstons of Elgin Cashmere Sweater - Cable Knit, V-Neck (For Women)

Closeouts. Like homespun angel hair, this shivery soft cable-knit sweater from Johnstons of Elgin emits halos of softness from the medium cable-knit pattern. Ribbed trim is knit on specialized machines to create the tension needed to preserve the shape of the garment over time. Vertical mill assures all dyeing, spinning, weaving and finishing processes are carefully controlled on site.

    Very nice sweater, great quality. This is my second one, I bought similar one earlier in different color. Right to size.

    Got it for my wife as a present, she usually wears small, but this sweater is perfect on her in medium.
    So, seems this runs small

    All their products are nice& this one has quality values as well. I normally get a SM size, but after reading reviews I got a MD. Glad I did as the open style weaving would have made it too see through with a smaller size.

    I purchased 2 of these sweaters--one in black and one in brume. The odd thing is the two look and fit completely different even though I ordered the same size! The cable knit on the black sweater is tight and the sweater fits nicely, while the knit on the brume is very loose, to the point of being see through. The brume sweater also has no shape. Needless to say, the brume sweater is going back. I would give 5 stars for the black and 1 star for the brume. The overall three stars is for the inconsistency in the product.

    I really like these sweaters. The variety in color and style make them versatile. I am glad to see the periwinkle and sea foam colors being sold for winter and not just in summer! The cashmere is wonderfully soft and feels great against the skin. The "ply" of the cashmere is thinner than the older Johnstons sweaters I have, so the weight is not as substantial. That said, I paid more for the heavier weight.

    Bottom line: Quality over Quantity: I will pay a bit more for the Scottish cashmere rather than for the very cheap and itchy Chinese cashmere flooding the market today!

    This sweater is perfect for a hint of coolness or excess A/C. It is high quality, but not dense cashmere. The light color (I got frost or ice or something) looks good for spring without looking too heavy.

    I'm so disappointed. The Johnston's things are so beautiful, and I've always been pleased in the past. Loved the color and softness, but I don't want a sweater that one can see through. Also the sleeves were too short for me.
