"Warm and attractive."

The sweater looks good, feels good, keeps me warm in the cold winter days of Rochester, NY; it's actually the third one I bought--I have one white, one charcoal--so you can see I like the product.

"A great sweater."

I like turtleneck sweaters that go "over the pants", but for some reason, these are hard to find now. This Aran turtleneck fits the bill perfectly.

"Yarn gauge too small for this knit!"

i've worn many Aran Cable Sweaters in my life. This one was like putting on a see through blouse, or sweater! The yarn gauge (thickness) is too small hence the pattern of the knit was too loose all through out the piece. They should have signed off on a pre-production knit prior to taking in this order.

"Awesome Sweater"

Got the sweater on sale - what a deal!! You can feel the quality! Hand wash or dry clean ONLY. If you wash it, air dry flat - no machine - or it will never be the same.

"Fall and Winter Comfort with Style"

This garment has been a favorite to wear with jeans or cold-weather pants. Best for action filled workshops, outdoor events, places and events that may be happening outdoors or in unheated indoors---provides effective warmth and comfort and also plenty of color and style. There was trouble with the sleeves. The upper portion was far to large, while the length was barely long enough. It seemed to be constructed for maybe a stocky person with somewhat short arms.

"Perfect for Carmel"

Where I live (Carmel) it is frequently foggy and cool, even this summer. I wore the sweater so much that I ordered a second one. It's just right for this kind of climate.

"I really like this sweater!"

Know an Irishmant here. He identified it as from Ireland imediately! Too bad it needs dry-cleaning, but no big deal. I was impressed enough, though that I ordered the Natural color as well. I really like this sweater!

"Unusual weave"

Although this sweater is beautifully made and well priced for the quality, the weave is such that the front and back panels and sleeve are see through, almost like net. In order to wear this, my husband would have had to wear a tee shirt underneath of the exact color as the sweater since anything underneath is clearly visible. It is unfortunate that the weave chosen was not different or tighter. I chose to return this sweater and was sorry to have to do so.

"I love this!"

I wear this with a turtleneck underneath and don't need a coat - yet I don't get overheated either. I wear it with jeans or slacks. My work is less formal than other positions, so I can wear it not just for fun things, but work as well.

This may be the worst product I've ever bought on-line, and I do a lot of Internet shopping. It's an embarrassment to NatGeo.

"They Could Have Done Better"

Poor design and styling trump the sleeve and body length. The design of the sweater is its downfall. There is lots of excess material under the arms and the fit around the chest is loose. A raglan sleeve would have been a much better design -- but that takes more time to do.

"Unique and comfortable"

I live in a southern climate and have only worn the sweater once on a fifty degree day. It was comfortable and I never felt too warm or cold even when I went inside. The sweater is soft and I love the way the unique patterns are combined in the sweater. Looking forward to a cold day so I can "show it off" again.
