"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.

"a beautiful sweater!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I just received this sweater and already cant wait for the weather to get cold enough to be able to wear it. Its beautiful! Colors are exactly as pictured. And the size fits me well. One thing to be aware of: according to the website, it should be a cotton blend machine washable sweater, however, the tag on the sweater I received says: 100% Alpaca (no complaints here!), and hand wash (oh well...) Still five stars!

"Carry & Wear it everywhere"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Great warm sweater for traveling. It packs well as it is warm but not bulky. I wear it mainly for casual reasons but it could be used for parties or going to the theater or the cinema. Ive had it a year and it was so useful through a cold Maine winter. It would be great as a light but warm outer cover in the warmer states. The greens are vibrant.

"A treat I gave myself"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This sweater is perfect with jeans. It would pair up with dress slacks or skirt as well. I wear mostly jeans now that I am retired and it is perfect. I wear it shopping and get so many compliments from strangers. It is well made, soft and warm. I have several sweaters from Novica and am never disappointed. The quality is fantastic.
