    Wish it was thicker

      I bought this for my 2yo for Christmas and it is much thinner than I would have expected from a 'chunky' sweater, it's also quite scratchy compared to other wool we own and I'm hoping it softens with a good washing. I haven't tried it on him yet so I can't comment on the fit but it looks pretty true to size.

      This is our favorite go to sweater for warmth, style, and something a bit different. My son loves purple and it is always great to see the range of colors Boden offers. I am happy it is wool as well due to the cold winter we are having. I hate handwashing but it is worth it for this piece.

      This sweater is adorable and warm (wool)! The colors are unique and look great on, love the yellow detail (I got the purple sweater with yellow trim for my son). I always pair it with a collared shirt because I think it may feel scratchy directly on his skin. I wash it in the washer on cool, but it's a bummer that I can't put it in the dryer. I'm just waiting for my husband to forget and throw it in the dryer with the rest of his clothes!

      Doesn't Shrink - Warm & Colorful

          The size 9/10 I ordered first seemed a bit large for my 9 year old. (Boden usually fits him true to size.) I gave it a not particularly gentle wash and a warm tumble dry hoping to shrink it a bit - no luck. It held up really well and kept its shape beautifully. He'll have to grow into it. I then ordered a size 7/8 in a different color, and it's just the right fit.
          The wool softens after washing. The colors are fantastic. (I bought the blue/brown and the navy/purple stripes.) Another review mentioned buttons on the striped styles, but this was not the case with the 2 sizes I purchased.

                  Perfect thickness! We got the tan/blue striped and it matches the brown tartans so well. And we pair it under the grey cord blazer for a dressy look. Love it!

                    My 6 year old boy has always had an aversion to anything and everything wool, and most tops with buttons. But we had our annual family photos coming up, and the grey fair isle was the cutest little sweater; I took a chance and bought it. To my surprise, my son had zero complaints about it. It's a beautiful, thick, warm sweater, well proportioned, with nice button detail on one shoulder.

                        My son won't wear anything with buttons. Obviously, I always check details carefully to avoid them when purchasing his clothing. The fair isle colorways of this sweater show the buttons at the neck clearly. The striped colorways show clearly, no buttons in the photo and nowhere is anything written about buttons. I'm very irritated to have to return this sweater, as it is cute otherwise. Boden, please get your descriptions and details clear!
