    I love this sweater so much, I wish they made it in a variety of colors. I'd buy them all. It's very comfortable and warm without being too hot. I'm allergic to wool and although this is made from a wool blend it's not itchy and doesn't cause a reaction for me. The size is true to fit and the sweater is durable, even with frequent buttoning and unbuttoning the button holes have not stretched. There's also very little pilling. I still haven't washed it, though.

    Pros:
    -fit true to size. (I'm usually a medium in most brands, 36A, 5'5", 135lbs, and this fit well in the medium).
    -cables are very pretty, as are the colors.
    -good quality.

    Cons:
    -the collar area lays very straight across the front as shown in the photo. This turned out to be way too modern for me.
    -despite the modern collar, the sweater comes across as frumpy, especially through the torso and stomach area.
    -the yarn of the sweater feels very acrylic. I knew this was a possibility from the description, but some acrylic yarns feel more acrylic than others. The fibers of this sweater felt very unnatural and almost plasticy to me.

    In the end:
    I decided to risk it and purchase this sweater, despite the lack of reviews. Unfortunately the lines just didn't work for me, and the feel of the fabric was a dealbreaker. It may work well for someone else - perhaps someone tall and thin? Although it didn't work for me, it is a pretty, quality sweater (hence the three stars). Unfortunately, I'll be sending this one back.
