Women's Classic Cashmere Cardigan Sweater
This sweater right feel, weight and fit.
This sweater is great. It fits perfect. Very soft and the colors are great. I would like the exact same sweater in a V-neck if I could get it.

Great colors but styling and quality not like previous years
I'm one of those lucky people who treasures my Land's End cashmere from many years ago. A cashmere sweater should last for a long time, and my 10-15 year-old turtlenecks and crews will outlast me. So many years of soft, lofty wear with no pilling-- How I miss being able to buy sweaters of that quality from Land's End. Unfortunately, the best ones were made before Land's End offered them in petite, so they've always been a bit large on me. Never mind, they are heavenly. My newer versions are so much thinner, less soft and definitely more prone to pilling. Still, I keep hoping, so this year I tried again with a cardigan, because the color selection was excellent. The colors are indeed beautiful, but the knit remains a bit thin. For this reason I'd thought to wear the cardigan just as a top, but no go. The fit was awkward, not flattering, and the buttons far enough apart that gaping made it impossible to wear alone or over a thin cami. Also, the neckline continues to be ribbed, which lacks the previous finished look of a bound neckline. Unfortuanately, I returned the cardigan. Land's End will probably continue to sell this "more affordable" cashmere but I think many customers would be willing to pay more for the option of some basic styles made of the high-quality cashmere yarn that is now a fading memory.

Quality is not as good as previous years
I have two of these Landsend cashmere cardigans I bought within the last 2 years. They are softer and thicker than the one I received as a gift this year. I like the color, and the fit is the same, but it feels scratchy, more like wool and is not as warm. I'm going to have to find a new brand of cashmere because these cardigans are not worth the price anymore.

I like it
I have purchased several of these over the years and I keep coming back for more.

A long-wearing classic.

Beautiful colors and nice fabric, but styling didn't fit
The colors are beautiful and the knitted cashmere is better than most, but I'm returning because I didn't like the neckline and the styling wasn't complementary on me.

Perfect in every way!
I bought one for each of my daughters and two for myself. The girls loved them! Although I loved and kept both of mine, one fit better than the other. Both made in the same country but a different fit. Still, I do love the fit and the feel. This brings my Land's End cashmere sweaters to four!! Red, Wineberry, Gray and Black.

New cashmere too thin and rough
I recently ordered 4 cashmere items; a shell, two short sleeved sweaters, and a cardigan. I've been ordering Lands End cashmere for years, but noticed a difference in two of my items. The "newer" ivory short sleeve sweater and cardigan had a single tag picturing the goat, and these two items were much thinner and rough than the other black shell and vibrant plum short sleeved sweater. The latter two had the "older" dual tags in the neckline, one with a separate "goat picture." The black shell and short sleeved sweater were softer and heavier. Also, the ivory was a full 2" longer than the other colors I own. For me, this was not good on my size small, 5'3" 125# frame. Please note that customer service was excellent in helping me identify the vibrant plum color to match to an older cardigan that I had purchased last year. For some reason it wasn't showing up on my order history online. I returned the two ivory items to a local Sears store for their inferior quality. The ivory was so thin it would have required a camisole under the short sleeved sweater, if worn alone. Hopefully, next year this will be rectified because I really would like the ivory set.

lovely sweater, a little thin
This is really a lovely sweater. I ordered my usual 1X and it fits well in all respects. The "Camel Heather" is a very nice color. (The Web page photo makes it look sort of shimmery, which it isn't.) I could wish this sweater were a little more substantial, but it would not be thin enough to be a problem except perhaps over a very bold patterned top. Came with a small cotton bag for protected storage.

I love cashmere
I don't think the quality is as good as Scottish cashmere which I bought in Europe some years ago, it seems to pill more. As I live in NZ I would like to able to get colour samples before I purchase, as the colours, particularly the reds I like, do not photograph accurately.
