Women's Rayon Nylon Cardigan
I got a green one at St. Patrick day. It was perfect timing. It was nice and soft sweater, smooth touching. I can wear it with trouse or skirt. It fited perfectly. I wish the lengh may be shorter a little bit, otherwise I feel like a grandma already.

I love these sweaters. I have 7 v-neck, 3/4 sleeve rayon nylon sweaters, so I thought I would try the cardis and I'm delighted that I did!! The length is perfect for me (I'm an XXS Petite) and the sleeves hit just right. They are heavier in weight than the Supima cardis, so I can wear them in the Spring and Fall, not just on cool summer nights. I've tried them with just about everything, from turtenecks to camis, and they look great. I bought 3 - one in ivory, black/true blue, and red. I will buy more of these sweaters...and the reviewers who say they are scratchy - well, everyone has their standards and opinions, but I find them to be comfortable. AND...they feel like rayon. They drape beautifully and are soft like rayon!!

This cardigan is a great "dressy" alternative to the standard cotton cardigan I've been buying from Lands End for years.
I ordered this cardigan and it's matching sweater in a beautiful cherry red for the Christmas season and really enjoyed it. A silk scarf or one of my large statement pieces of vintage jewelry was all I needed to wear the twinset to the grandest of Christmas parties here in casual Florida. The fabric has a bit of a sheen and is finished beautifully (yes- with matching colored buttons!) so it seems dressier than the LE cotton twin sets I have worn for years that are a staple of my wardrobe. The v neck cardigan allows me to wear jewelry much easier than a crew cardigan. I usually wear my twin sets with black LE Starfish slacks or dressier travel knit slacks. This sweater also has less bulk to it when folded and does not wrinkle as easily as cotton - so it travels very well.
The fit of this sweater is the same as all the other cotton sweaters and knit tops I purchase from LE. I am 5'6'', weigh around 180, and wear a bra size 40C. I order the Petite XL in most LE tops and they usually fit me perfectly.
I have been watching the color offerings for this twin set - and just ordered the light green for Easter Sunday. It is a beautiful young green - not the mint green that my elderly mother would select. Can't wait to wear it as well. Try this set - ladies - you will feel "dressed up" if you pair it with dark slacks and the right accessories.

Scratchy texture - not a soft sweater
I ordered this V-neck cardigan in the true blue with black trim to go with a black skirt. The colors are vibrant and the shell buttons are a pretty touch, but I didn't like the texture which feels scratchy and rough. Other reviewers have said it looks dressy but to me, the overall look is rather matronly. (My sister even described it as "mannish.")
I never bought a rayon and nylon sweater before and assumed it would be softer. I bought this as a gift and while it doesn't look cheap, neither does it look or feel like a high-quality sweater. Also, contrary to the online product description, I would not describe this as a "relaxed" fit. In a size 6 Petite, it appears to be true to size but not roomy or relaxed fitting.

OK for the price
This sweater is nice but runs very big. it's not a cold-weather sweater but will work in the Spring on a cool day.

Have ordered this in several colors
I love the fit and style of this sweater I find it fits true to what I think is my size. I feel very "put together" when coordinating this cardigan with the black starfish pants. Have received many compliments

Used to be Great But Now Not So Much
I have several of these cardigans in varying colors. I have ordered the same size for all of them and would've rated the earlier versions as a 5, yet the two I've ordered (in the fall of 2013) have been very undersized compared to two previous cardigans (same style) I purchased earlier. Not sure why, but it's disappointing. I'm hanging onto them just in case I can get down to the sizes, but it's frustrating that I can no longer trust the sizing. (And I could've sworn the Lands End review site used to include a size rating for too big, too small, about right...? This wasn't available when I wrote this.) Bummer!

Bought this after reading a ton a reviews on all of the various cardigans. This was the one most folks reviewed positively and I have to agree. I bought the pink (I am a fair blonde) and I have nothing but compliments every time I wear it. the fit is terrific especially the arms, I struggle with most tops having tight arms on me but not this cardigan, they are perfect. It looks dressy with my dress shirts because of the rayon and the edging, very professional. I haven't worn it with a shell yet but I am sure it will work well with most tops, Will buy in more colours.
