"This Is the Most Beautiful Sweater"

I have been eying this Sweater for about two years, but the price was an obstacle. I finally bit the bullet and purchased it, and I didn't regret it for a second. It was well worth the wait. I will be wearing this often this fall and winter.

"Beautiful!"

I had read the other reviews and that's when I made up my mind just do it!! The sweater came yesterday and it is just beautiful. I was worried that it could be itchy on me, but it isn't. I ordered a L instead of a M because I wanted extra room incase I wore a heavier shirt. It is just a bit larger then I wanted, but hey I have it!! Just beautiful!

Best Uses
  • Use instead of a coat or jacket
  • Want to look dressier when I go out!

"Beautifully made"

Very well made sweater not thin at all. Comfortable and warm. What I do not like is the excess material under the arm and where the arms meet the shoulders is low as if the shoulders don't fit. I do think it is supposed to fit that way.

"Not as nice as photo"

I have bought several great sweaters from Nat Geo so was expecting better, esp for price. The garnet color looks deep and rich in photo but is more washed out in reality. I usually wear 6-8, but even small was too bulky and unflattering. Material seemed thinner than expected for outerwear, but too bulky to wear as sweater indoors. It's going back.

"Beautiful Sweater Jacket"

This Sweater Jacket is so large that I can't wear it comfortably. The sleeves cover my hands and the shoulders hang way off. It is too heavy and bulky to carry on a trip. Planned to wear it on a trip in the fall for my cold weather occasions. Not practical for travel but a beautifully knitted multi-stitched sweater. Need to return it.

"Beautifully knitted"

This is a beautifully made outer wear piece great for layering. I chose the gray because I wear a lot of red, purples and blacks in winter. The wool is scratchy, but not a problem when worn over another sweater or even a vest and shirt. I wore this as a "coat" over a knit shirt when walking around Colonial Williamsburg at 40 degrees and was comfortable both indoors and out. I bought the size most true to my bust measurement and it fit perfectly. I like the extra room in the upper arms, allows freedom of movement over layers and your cuffs don't ride up to three quarter length when you move.

"Love the jacket"

I waited for this coat to go on sale. I really love it. It is made of wool and it is a little scratchy, but no more than other wool sweaters. You can wear this as a jacket, or in cold weather at the office. I think it would be great to take on a plane. Finally I have long arms and am 5' 8". I bought the large. The sleeves are a touch too short, but it's not noticible. I would recommend this. Nicely made.

"LOVE THE RICH GREEN COLOR"

Knowing I'll most likely never have an opportunity to travel to Ireland, I purchased this gorgeous sweater jacket as a birthday gift...to me! I plan to take it on an Alaska cruise and wow the other lady passengers. I wear a size 12 dress and ordered a Large, which is perfect for layering over other clothing without feeling restricted (above all...COMFORT!). I'll probably use a silk scarf to protect the skin on the back of my neck (COMFORT wins again!) but I don't consider this a situation that would warrant the return this lovely, well-constructed garment. It's definitely a keeper!

"Disappointing"

I was looking forward to treating myself to this expensive sweater but was very disappointed when it arrived. It was uncomfortably scratchy, I could not have worn it for long. And the sleeves were oddly designed being very wide at the top and short toward the wrist. I ordered a small, which fit well. Don't waste your money or the $20 it will cost you to receive and return it.

"Beautiful; charcoal color off for me"

I'm 5'4" and 115; the small is perfect for layering over a sweater - even a bulky one. I love the feel and weight and style of this sweater. It's a perfect layering piece for someone who gets cold super easily. My one little "but": the color's not quite what I hoped for. I think with my blue eyes and little bit of gray hair, the amount of white in the charcoal color kind of washes me out. Exchanging for green.

I was debating whether to buy a medium or large because while I am 5'8", I have very long arms. The medium was a perfect fit and the arm length very ample. I have worn this sweater with a dressy black dress and with a light weight pullover and jeans. I always get compliments. I can't think if any negatives about this beautiful sweater.

"beautiful but sent back"

I loved the picture of the model wearing this sweater and was looking forward to owning it. I received a small and medium planning to return one. On both sweaters the upper arms are huge - not at all flattering. I really wanted to love this but after trying both sizes on multiple times I ended up returning both. Maybe that's the style of traditional Irish sweaters - the super-roomy upper arms but it didn't work for me (5'4" and 125 lbs).

"Absolutely Fabulous!!"

It runs just slightly on the large size so if you are in between or borderline or sizes, I would suggest the smaller of the 2 sizes. I got the green (had to it's Irish) and the color is beautiful. It is perfect for Colorado as a layer or Texas as we don't own or wear heavy coats. I couldn't be happier and can't wait until next winter when I can wear it.

"A beautiful sweater if you have a need."

Although it is a nice sweater and my wife liked it, it fit too large - long arms, etc - and she decided it was too expensive to "accept" a less than desirable fit, so it was returned. She really needed an XS, which wasn't available... yet(?). Otherwise, we thought it was a nice sweater.

"Beautiful and warm"

This sweater is a real beauty I will wear for a long time. The knitting quality and patterning is stunning. The green color is a wonderful marbled wool. It's heavier than I expected but warm enough for my cold office and the coldest Southern Cal days. I ordered the XL for my 5'5" sturdy, roundish frame and large shoulders; it's large enough to layer office clothing underneath. I normally wear a LG so this is sized a bit small for most American women. I have longish arms but the XL fits fine for me. Order it larger than your normal size if you want to layer an office suit underneath.

"Beautiful Jacket"

I am very happy with this jacket. The green is gorgeous in weave and color. Being 5'7' and curvy, I ordered the X-Large. As a woman who is normally frustrated with U.S. sizing, I must disagree with the reviewer who said this jacket runs small for most American women. I found it a comfortable fit even over a medium-weight sweater. The sleeves are nice and long and the length is perfect. It's flattering whether buttoned at the top or left open. The picture suggest a heavier weight sweater but it is very light and warm.

"Beautiful Sweater Jacket, but too bulky"

I really liked the look of this in the catalog. When it arrived, I contemplated keeping it for almost a month. I never wore it, except to try it on several times, deciding if I should keep it and alter it. The arms were huge, in both radius at the shoulder and in length. I ordered the smallest size available, but it was just too bulky and long for my 5'2" frame. I didn't want to return it, but did because of the cost and fact that I probably wouldn't wear it.

"Better than I thought it would be :-)"

The measurements/sizing info was conservative, so my sweater was a more looser in the chest & shoulders than expected. However, as this will be worn by me as outerwear, that's OK. The sweater is still a work of art: the Aran designs are expertly knitted, and the green colour I chose was more beautiful than it was in the photo.

"Perfect in Every Way"

I am 5'9", 155 pounds and the Large fits me perfectly. I love the style, the weight and the cozy feel of this sweater. I chose oatmeal and the yarn, which has tiny flecks of dark brown, is beautiful - so natural and authentic. It has good weight and yet is soft. I am so pleased to see Irish Aran patterns executed in a more updated style. I love this sweater; it has already become a favorite. It is also an excellent value.

"Impossible fit"

Having read the reviews, I was really looking forward to receiving this sweater. Unfortunately it is being returned because the sleeves are incredibly wide. I could easily fit 2 bulky sweaters under this sweater and have room left over in the sleeves. While the body of the sweater fits properly, the arms look and fit all wrong. I wonder if there was a mistake in the knitting of this particular sweater.

"Good quality sweaters"

The green and grey ones were very nice. However, the burgundy one looks like it has grey fuzz all over it. I won't were it until I can dye it or something. It looks terrible.

"Beautiful"

I love this sweater. I bought the green and it is beautiful. I wear a 14 usually and I bought an XL. It is just right for layering over other shirts and still being comfortable. I love the long length. It is just right for an evening stroll or sitting on the patio. I have received many compliments on it too.

"Warm and cozy"

Gorgeous sweater Great length which could almost work as a coat. I love the fact that an explanation of each of the stitches was sent with it. Lovely colour. Beautifully made.
