"exceeded all my expectations !"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

When this sweater arrived I was thrilled at how beautiful the colors were and how skilled the handiwork was. When I tried it on , it fit perfectly! In fact, the sleeves were plenty long, and they rarely are for me. It is warm yet lightweight, and everytime I wear it I get lots of complements. I want to wear it every day as it matches all my pants.

"Now I have two!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This is a marvelous sweater. Its light, so I wear it even in the relatively cool Vermont summers. It goes with every color. To tell the truth, Ive worn one so often everyday that its a bit worn, so Ive ordered another just like it and will wear it at fancier occasions.

"pretty design, but thin as paper"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Yarn is thin, weave is loose. Sweater may be worn only for decoration, as its paper-thin & provides no warmth.
