        I love this sweater - it's just adorable. Very danty and sweet. I just feel it runs too small. My daughter is almost 4 yrs old and I am sending my 5-6 yr size back for 6-7 yr size.

        I saw this darling sweater and it reminded me of my youth, so I HAD to buy it for my granddaughter! I was disappointed however, because the sweater that looked cream on the web, was beige in person. It is still cute but not what I wanted. I kept it anyway because I was too lazy to return it.

          Winters seem to be getting colder lately! I got this pretty sweater for my daughter to wear as soon as the first chill nipped at the air. It's thinner than I was expecting, but it will keep her warm enough at school.

          Pretty, but a bit itchy

              My daughter picked this sweater out of the catalog as the first thing. We both love the design, it is a very pretty sweater. However, my daughter complained that it itches a little bit and she would not wear it. It depends whether it is worn on a short sleeve or a long one. We live in Northern Plains and in our climate she already needs a lighter coat, she would be cold with just a sweater and long sleeved shirt underneath. She prefers a short sleeve, sweater and a coat. Therefore, the sweater is not comfortable for her. I will have to return it.

                Love this sweater. Fun colors my daughter loves with the oatmeal make it nearly neutral.

                  We've only had this sweater for one week, so I'll try to come back and update my review mid-Season.

                  I bought this for my rugby-playing, rock-climbing, nearly 9 year old daughter. She loved the bright colors and Fair Isle design. I loved the fact that it is mostly wool, as we try to stick to natural fibers.

                  So far this sweater is comfy (not itchy), fits well, and seems to not pill badly like the Acrylic boden cardigan I bought my youngest.

                  In the first week that we bought this, we travelled from Las Vegas to St. Louis, from hot and dry to breezy and humid weather, and my daughter has used it in the cold air conditioning of the airport as well as the dampness of her grandfather's basement.

                  So far, it's a hit!

                  If Boden offered it in 100% wool or another natural fiber, I would give it 5 stars.
