Women's Short Sleeve Boucle Cowl Sweater
Cozy and Roomy
Whoa! PXS slid right down over my shoulders. I'd have to walk around hugging myself to keep the piece on.
I'm sort of tiny though. I am thinking that one of my (younger) nieces would enjoy this for Christmas though.

Super Stylish Look
I absolutely love love they way this sweater looks! I tried it on but have not worn it yet - my worries are that it might be itchy in the neck area so I will see how it looks with a lace turtle neck, I think that will give it a nice fashionable look and keep my neck from getting itchy and red. My other worry is that it's probably too bulky to wear with a coat so I will reserve this for more Fall wether or if I know I'm running from the car into a building without too much walking.

just plain odd
I was really looking forward to receiving this sweater because I love big, bulky sweaters that are still stylish. I tried it on....and it is just odd. The neck is massive, I knew it would be big but not like this. The problem though is the body of the sweater, it is half the size of the neck. The body of the sweater is not bulky but the neck is. I can understand why it was marked down so drastically.

Love this sweater, but wish the waistline was different & it's itchy.
The perfect cowl neck sweater with two minor issues...for me at least. One, it has a waistline that doesn't have any stretch & is short in length. It seems the proportions are slightly off. The sweater is also itchy...definitely have to wear a turtleneck or something underneath. Other than that, I can't believe the price I paid for it as it's a very well made sweater. The neck is amazing. Love the look! Would have given five stars if the waistline were elastic, slightly longer and not itchy. I will still wear it all the time. Super warm.

Different looking but love it!
I am 5'4" and was worried the collar would be too much. I love this sweater! Played around with the ginormous collar and it looks great. Sooooo cozy and warm. Love it!

I just tried this on, and I love it!
The fit is great. I am 5'4" 123 lbs -- a fairly solid size 6-8. The fit and feel of this sweater is wonderful. I have no idea how it will hold up after I hand wash it, but I'm keeping my fingers crossed. It's still in the 80s where I live, and this sweater is making me yearn for a cool, crisp fall day. I know this will be a favorite through fall and winter! Thank you LE.

EVERYTHING I EXPECTED
THIS IS AS GREAT AS IT LOOK IN THE PHOTO. CAN'T WAIT FOR WINTER IN BRISBANE, AUSTRALIA TO GET COLD ENOUGH!
THE ALPACA ADDS EXTRA WARMTH, THE FIT IS PERFECT ( I'M SIZE 8 PETITE) AND IT LOOKS EQUALLY GOOD BY ITSELF OR WITH A SHIRT UNDERNEATH.
I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS TO ANYONE.

It fit big so that you could wear something under it. Well made.
I returned it due to the fact that the wool content was too much for my skin to handle.

The oddest-shaped sweater you'll ever love
The odd shape? Picture a lower-case t, upside down. Ish. The shape might be a bit daunting, but it works. The trick is to play around with the ginormous collar/shoulders in front of a mirror, as you would with a scarf. I spent the holidays in it, and now it is great in the office over a simple blouse, too.
When my friend first saw me in it she said, "Oh! I like your... cape??" It is a bit like a cape, and as with a cape, it's not a shape you can functionally lift your arms way up in without bearing your midriff, so wear something long underneath. When you're not lifting your arms, however, It's snuggly and warm, and works well over leggings or skinny jeans, as it's longer in the back.
I got a nice price break on it-- not sure I'd pay the full price.

beautiful feel- like a warm hug- but cant lift your arms.
I love, love, loved this sweater when I took it out of the box. The material is like your favorite throw blanket. It took a moment to figure out which end was the top but once i got it on it was comfortable. I am a tall person so I quickly realized that it was rather short on me. I was willing to deal with it because it was so cozy until I realized because of the sleeve design when you lift your arms up at all the whole sweater comes up and here comes your entire belly. I also couldn't figure out how to get a coat over it because of the sleeve design. I loved the sweater and considered keeping it for couch days but it was too expensive, even on sale, for that.
