Women's Lambswool Fair Isle Cardigan
Happy now with a smaller size!
I ordered this sweater in a M, my normal size, when it was at full price, and I really liked the colors and the wooden buttons and the way the neck is done (not a turtle neck but sort of like one). But it made me look like an old lady (which I actually am, but I try to avoid the look...), and it hung funny and looked baggy. (I do think the picture is a bit misleading, and I'll bet they have a big gob of sweater pinned up in the back on the model.) So I sadly sent it back. Then I read a couple of the other reviews, and they said they tried a smaller size and it looked much better. So when it went on sale, I hopefully ordered it in a S, and guess what: it still fits fine, only not so loose and baggy, and looks much better. So consider sizing down if you think you would like a trimmer look, or up if you want to belt it. It's a super cute sweater, very flattering, and the colors and design are really unique. It's also warm enough for outdoors in cool weather, but light enough to wear in the house. I'm happy now!

This sweater is warm and cozy. I wear like the picture belted with a royal blue tissue turtle and pink cords from this year all LEC. The pink in the sweater is the same as the skinny cords!

This is a useful sweater. It can be used to dress an outfit up or down, and is warm but not bulky. Only comment is that it runs large....I take an xl in regular Lands End sweaters and this L fits perfectly.

Love this sweater! The pattern is great and the colors are vivid. Super soft and fun to wear!
Runs a little big. I don't like the idea of belting it because it is a little boxy, but still works great as a heavier sweater!
I got many compliments on the fun pattern!

Soft and warm
I love this sweater. Like the previous review, I found it to run large and it's not long enough to be belted on me. I tried the small in my local store and it was too frumpy. I ordered the xs and I like the fit of it. I'm 5'6" tall, small wasted, 130 lbs, 34c. I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 since the pic of the model is not as accurate as it could be and the sizing is off.

I'm really happy with this sweater. I'm giving it a 4 rather than a 5 because it doesn't look quite like it does in the picture, it's much boxier and not as long, so I don't think I could wear it belted like the model. It fits kind of like a jacket. I'm a size 0/2 and purchased the XS which fits fairly large on me, but in a cute cozy way. The best part about it are the wooden buttons, so adorable!
