Rated 3 out of 5 by CD65 Warm and toasty
The color of this brown sweater was more yellowish than the picture
(which showed more grey-brown) and heavier than I expected. It fit OK in an XL, but I think it may shrink when washed, I'll have to baby it. More suitable for very casual wear with cords or jeans.

This sweater is attractive and stylish. Looks great with jeans, slacks and the J.Jill straight skirt.

I love this sweater but pilling is the only complaint I had. First time I wore it, it had pills along the arms. The sweater is extremely comfortable and will continue to wear. I will deal with the pilling and enjoy the comfort each time I wear it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by JJillnFan Does not wash well
Although the material was a bit itchy, I loved this sweater the first time I wore it. Then came the first wash. I hand washed it with mild detergent and laid flat to dry as per instructions. Once dry, it was at least one size smaller than before. No amount of stretching helped. Had to put it into the donation box. My suspicion is that the wool content was cheap wool. Maybe the instructions should say "dry clean only".

Rated 5 out of 5 by BeckyRoze Cozy and loose
I really like this sweater. I bought the tan color, which goes with nearly everything. It is not too scratchy, so I could wear it alone, although I will probably layer it over another top. I like that it is loose and not clingy. A good purchase!

Rated 4 out of 5 by goodg very nice, but the color is a bit different than expected
The sweater has that slightly scratchy wool feel, which I love. It's "boxy" and straight around the waist--just as I like, and great for wearing a shirt under. I have short arms, and these sleeves look good folded up. The color is a little more yellow-y than expected. It's more like a "wheat" color. I was hoping for it to be a lighter beige or even a little taupe-ish. Yellow tones aren't good on me, but since I'll usually wear a shirt of a different color underneath, the lovely texture and shape make it one to keep, regardless. It's great quality.

Rated 4 out of 5 by MickiSue A Little Shorter than Shown
This top is true to color, and fits well, with room for a shirt underneath. (Which is good, because it's a bit scratchy, from the wool).
But, even with my relatively short torso, it's a little shorter, and falls about an inch or an inch and a half higher on the hip than shown.
Can't wait to wear it, though!

Rated 3 out of 5 by Giff sleeves way too short
I followed the washing instructions, but the sleeves really shrank -- they are more like 3/4 sleeves now
