    Lovely sweater but runs small

    Posted by Deirdre on Feb 9th 2020

    My husband loved the pattern and the feel and quality but it was too small. Good deal for our grandson but I had to order an extra large to replace the one I bought for my husband for Christmas.For comparison purposes, he wears a 42 regular suit and usually buys large shirts.

    This sweater is a great fit and it's neither too heavy or too light. It looks like something a rich man would wear. It reeks of quality. This is a buy!

    a sweater that I'll wear

    Posted by Robert on Jan 18th 2019

    The sweater is very, very soft - unbelievably so! It is also fairly heavy, despite its softness, so it will maintain warmth. I'm a big fella and got a 2X, which usually works well, but the sweater is just a touch small for a 2X

    alpaca cardigan

    Posted by Steve on Oct 26th 2018

    the sweater is great. I had several people at work say they loved it. The only problem is when i took if off a button from my shirt pulled out 18 inches of yarn from the sleeve. not sure how i will repair but will need to.
