Women's Year Round Cashmere Balletneck Sweater
This is a great sweater for fall through spring. I was comparing it to a cashmere sweater I got at Land's End several years ago, and it lacks the weight (plies) of the older one, but it still works by itself with a scarf or layered. It fits well either way--roomy without being baggy and very soft. Thumbs up.

Wonderful weight and flattering style
After reading the reviews, the decided to take a chance on this Land's End ballet-neck sweater. I ordered the turquoise color and couldn't be more pleased. I find the weight of the cashmere just right and the fit loose enough to layer over a long-sleeved shirt. However, I will more often than not just layer a tank underneath, which is how I wear most of my sweaters. The nude color tank I use blends right in. I actually prefer this weight instead of the heavier cashmere sweaters I have purchased in the past from Land's End. The ballet neckline is much more comfortable than the T-Shirt style neckline and its a universally flattering style. I would definitely recommend this product and look forward to ordering more.

Sweater is on the thin side. The yellow is more like a greenish yellow instead of a lemon yellow
Fits true to size

I love the fit and feel of this sweater.
I like this sweater because it is lightweight. We live in Florida and it just doesn't get that cold. I wear it outside and inside. I would definitely recommend this sweater.

its ok, but not the usual land's end quality
i found the sweater to be true to size. i take a petite large and it was perfect and even a little roomy. the problem for me was that the sweater was VERY lightweight and thin and not as soft (even after washing) as other cashmere sweaters i have purchased from land's end. the fibres in the yarn (judging from the sample sent with the sweater and the appearance in general) are short and break easily. i have worn it with a blouse underneath in the house as it really isn't warm enough otherwise. a 3 season sweater at best. i am glad i did not pay full price.

Pleased with both jumpers
I am really happy with both of these tops, although the coral colour that I chose for one is much more orange than it appeared on my screen. The Teal is exactly as I expected and is very flattering.
The tops are as advertised, very fine and I think that they will require gentle management.
They also look as though they will pill, time will tell.
The light weight should be good for layering in winter interiors and for comfort in summer air conditioning.
I usually buy fine jumpers in one or two sizes larger than I need them as I like to push up the sleeves and have the body of the piece drape somewhat. The extra space is also useful for layering.

This sweater is great. The color is fun, it's fits well and I like how light weight it is.

I'm an occasional LE shopper who stumbled on this sweater. Balletneck is the most flattering (on everyone) neckline ever, and here it is in many colors. I ordered my regular size XS (I'm 5'6, 123 lbs., 34B), and it is perfectly perfect. The sleeves are a (thankful) bit longer than 3/4 so it's easy to wear a long sleeve boatneck tee underneath without a good bit of sleeve showing at the wrist. The waist line lays flat, the fit is smooth and slimming. I ordered the dark pink color and it is opaque and exceptionally pretty--a rich color and not a neon hot pink. I am here now to order more colors as balletneck cashmere does not come along every day of the week. I wore for work with a short black flippy skirt, black tights and black suede booties, but will also wear with wool pencil skirts and jeans--both skinny and bootcut. Oh, and so far, no pills--but I'm watching. Buy this and enjoy looking and feeling really feminine and pretty. I could conquer the world in this sweater. Perhaps I will.

Wonderful cashmere sweater
I got this sweater in bright orange, which is a vibrant, beautiful color. I also received another for a Christmas gift in Sea Aqua Heather, which is a light, opal blue. As the description says, the sweater is a year-round weight, meaning it's lighter. I wore it over the holidays, and it kept me nice and toasty during our Wisconsin winter. It's light without being sheer and warm without the bulk, fitting true to size. Definitely a good buy.
