    I haven't worn or washed this sweater yet, but I do love it! It's so soft! It's the real deal: a classic, high quality cashmere sweater. The only flaw for me is that the sleeves are a little too long. But, I'm 5'2" and that doesn't surprise me. I was concerned about the collar, but it lays just perfectly. You could wear a shirt underneath, but don't have to. I love the dark blue color that I got. It's very warm, so I'm saving it for cooler weather, unless I will be outside most of the time. It could be used for any occasion, from very casual to office, to any informal occasion.

    I returned this sweater. While it was soft and warm, it didn't quite stack up to the cashmere sweaters I'm used to. Now I also know what color "begonia" is and it was a little too pinkish/mauve for my wardrobe. This sweater is a good mix and match for a casual wardrobe, but didn't quite blend in with the more classic skirts and trousers in my wardrobe. Generally, I wouldn't recommend this sweater to a friend.

    I've wanted a Johnstons of Elgin sweater for a long time, and this is a very good value for a lovely warm sweater. I was happy to find a small size (4-6).

    Finally, the wonderful, thick, soft cashmere the way it's supposed to be....not like the thin, cheap, itchy "cashmere" from China sold at places like Nordstrom.

    This sweater is great for anytime you want to be warm, look classy and feel so soft and cozy. It is a wonderful buy for the great quality, but I returned it because it is just too warm for me to wear often enough to justify the money. Also, I thought the color was a little more toward the turquoise which it is not. The word descriptor of "fairway" is a good one.

About Johnstons of Elgin

The inherent luxury of pure Scottish cashmere is borne out in every garment that arrives from the legendary mills of Johnstons of Elgin - a centuries-old family firm doing business in the far North of Scotland since 1797. Using the finest cashmere and superfine wools in the world, Johnstons processes its fibers in a rare "vertical mill" system, where all of the dyeing, spinning, weaving and finishing are carefully controlled on site. Johnstons produces a range of cloth, knitwear and home furnishings at this historic plant - products that are probably best known for their irresistible softness to the touch. The secret, Johnstons believes, is in the finishing, a process still enhanced by the super soft, clear water from nearby River Lossie.
