    I went back and forth on this sweater for a while. I loved the look but wasn't sure if it'd be comfortable or worth the money. I finally ordered it and I must say it's one of my favorite sweaters ever!

      Love this sweater in green, though my 11 year-old son did tell me I look like an Easter egg in it. :) It's not as bulky as I expected, which makes it more comfortable but also makes it prone to wrinkle at the hip line after sitting for a while.

        This sweater is beautiful. I bought it in navy and the colors of the fair isle are so bright next to the navy. It is definitely a slim fit sweater but my standard size 4 fit perfectly. The fit feels similar to the J.Crew Tippi Sweater.

            I purchased this in green and beige, and love both. I normally buy size 8, but sized up to 10, based on other reviews. I prefer a little room, and the 10 is perfect--not baggy. The 8 would have been very fitted, but would have been fine for that type of look.

              • Strange Fit

              Best Uses

                I had read many reviews that raved about this sweater so I ordered 2 - navy and green - in a size 6. I am 5'7" and weigh 115#. I typically wear a size 6 in Boden knitwear to get a long enough sleeve length. That being said, the sleeves on both sweaters were just a tad too short. What I can't get past is the very strange fit! The sweater appears from the front to fit me in the bust/shoulders and the waist but from the side/back view there is a "ballooning" (for lack of a better term) of material across my mid to upper back. I am a very slender build with a small bust so I don't know if this cut is for a more busty gal than me. I also purchased the penguin sweater and the same "ballooning" in the upper back region is happening with that one as well. Ordering a smaller size would just mean even shorter sleeves which I couldn't live with. Not sure I will keep these. I am going to try steaming them since they arrived folded across the chest region and if that doesn't work, they are definitely going back!

                  I ordered the navy sweater in a size 4, and like the way it fits. I am 5'3" and 115lbs - narrow shoulders. The colors are fun for drab days and with a pair of stretchy cords, and light blue collared shirt underneath, it looks super cute! I am always cold in my house and this warms me right up! Love it!

                    love this sweater because it brings some color to the casual weekend wear. Fits perfectly to look more classic. Colors are sophisticated enough to wear to work with a skirt. It fits true to size. It is not oversized so it is perfect for any occasion.

                      I have been looking for a Fair Isle sweater for a couple of years. Ones I have bought in the past were too over the top in regards to the pattern / design and did not wear well with time. This Fair Isle sweater is tasteful and, so far, holding up well. I have washed it a couple of times and it is retaining it's shape and not pilling. It is also soft and not itchy as so many sweaters can be. LOVE this purchase.

                        So I pulled this one out of the long awaited polka-dot box and fell in love with the colors. I'm a purple girl but the intensity of the green sweater with the purple detailing was awesome. Super warm, a little itchy so I put a cami on underneath, with some dark purple velvet pants and got tons of compliments at work. My 7 year old daughter loved it too. My only negative would be that after wearing once, the material starts pilling underneath the armpits. Not sure if that's just me because I have bigger arms, but love it anyways.

                        What a cute sweater! The oatmeal has beautiful colors in the pattern and it goes well with jeans, pants, skirts. Feels true to size, although it's meant to hug your body. It's 100% wool so it's a tad scratchy, but perfect otherwise.
