Johnstons of Elgin Classic Cashmere Turtleneck Sweater - 21-Gauge (For Women)

Closeouts. The higher the gauge, the finer the yarn, the softer and lighter the sweater. Apply that logic to Johnstons of Elgin's classic cashmere turtleneck -- knit from superfine 21-gauge yarns -- and you have a blissfully soft sweater you can wear in almost any season.

    I have other Johnstons turtle neck sweaters but this one just did not fit right.

    This fall I went on a cashmere binge. My one cashmere sweater, a gift from my brother more than thirty years ago, had finally worn through at the elbows. So I tried four different well-known brands, two of them carried here at STP, and actually bought one or two, but I kept coming back to Johnstons of Elgin for its sumptuous hand, a hand that I know will only improve as the sweater is washed and blooms. I wear a standard American size 14 (usually a Large for most manufacturers), and I've always preferred my sweaters to skim rather than cling to my body. For my taste, sleeves should allow a blouse to be worn under the sweater. With Johnstons, I had to go to an XL to get the fit right. But the texture of this sweater is so ingratiating, it was worth the exchange wait. (Nevertheless, I didn't return the L until I had XL firmly in hand, figuring I could always wear it as an underlayer, which would have been preferable to losing it entirely.)

    Well, I was happy to order this sweater, but not happy when it arrived. It runs small, so it is going back.

    This sweater is excellent quality, very soft cashmere. The size and fit are true to size. The color is a warm, bright red - a classic.

    I purchased two sweaters, one in black and the other navy, in XXL. I'm so glad that size was available! Turtleneck sweaters are always a problem for me because I come from the "big neck family" and most T-necks are too tight. By the end of the day, I feel nearly strangled. The extra bit of size helps, even though the rest of the sweater is generous. The cashmere is soft and I look forward to wearing this garment the the cooler months.
