Verified Buyer Reviewed by morning from ohio on Thursday, February 4, 2016This is a very soft sweater and the cashmere feels wonderful on the skin. I purchased the sweater in XL. I usually wear medium or large in other brands, but I always order up in Johnston's of Elgins' sweaters. I purchased the crimson color which is a beautiful reddish pinkish color. It should brighten up a dull grey winter day. The arms of the sweater are a little tight, so I hope the sweater does not shrink.
Reviewed by MH from Iowa on Sunday, November 29, 2015I've been buying the cable knit V-neck for several years Looks like STP hasn't restocked them so I got this one. I'm very sensitive to wool and have appreciated the softness of the cable knits. This one disappoints. You might not notice if this were your first JofE but I am used to buttery soft. This one has a rougher feeling to it. I'll have to wear something under it, in order to be comfortable. I like the color (Turquoise is really Teal) and am keeping it altho I usually get S, only M was left and it is a little bit too big, especially the v-neck is not ideal for me. Again, probably will require an underlayer and a scarf. But since it was all that is left, what to do? Since STP changed owners, quality and product choice are slipping. Too bad, I've been a customer for over 20 yrs. Shipping charges too. Used to be able to return/exchange for free.
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Retired doc from New Hampshire on Wednesday, March 11, 2015If you want a very high quality cashmere sweater that will last for years if well cared for this it the one to buy. The construction is superb and the feel of the fabric ... well let's just say it is as sensual like a caress. If your size is not immediately available just keep returning because the stock is refreshed often. There is even an option to be notified by email when that happens. Treat yourself royally and get one. You will not be disappointed.

“Would like to verify that the 'Rose Pink' color is a pale pink. The other detail photos, in the 2nd photo where multiple sweaters are shown, in that photo, is that the 'Petal' color or 'Rose Pink'”
To my eye Rose Pink is a paler pink. The second photo is a customer submitted, but it looks to me to be Petal.
“I have read mixed reviews on the sizing of this sweater. I normally wear size 12/14 in a sweater. Does this run small? Should I order a true Large (12-14) or go one size up to XL?||Also some people say the sweater is soft and some say its scratchy. Which is it?|Thank you!”
According to our fit models this sweater is running true to size. It is a classic fit, meaning it is semi-fitted following your shape with ease for added movement. In my opinion it is soft.
