"Love it"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I love the softness, warmth, design, color and fit of this. I used to knit a lot, and can confirm that this is high-quality work. My favorite sweater. I'm 5'5 and 125-130 lbs and the medium was a perfect relaxed fit which is what I prefer..

"Colors more subdued than pictured."

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Love the craftsmanship, but I thought I was purchasing a sweater with turquoise in the pattern. The colors are more on the muted side, more heathered rather than crisp. The sleeves are a full 2 inches longer than I expected based on an earlier purchase, so the detail on the sleeves will be lost, as they will need to be rolled under.
