Rated 3 out of 5 by RedBean So soft, it's hard to believe it's wool!
Incredibly soft, fine and light for a wool sweater. I will wear this a ton, despite fit issues. I like that the sweater is long and loose, like a tunic. However, the sleeves run very short (and I do not have ape arms like my husband and sister) -- I will have to wear it with the sleeves pushed up. Rather than a winter sweater, it is a good and basic fall/spring transition piece.

Rated 5 out of 5 by minim1 Great sweater!
This is a lovely sweater that can be dressed up or down. It is lightweight, slimming, and looks much better on than in the catalog photo. What luck that it was also on sale at a substantial discount!

This is Black Sweater #25,000 in my closet, but in the top ten when it comes to what I reach for. It just looks good. There's a hint of fitted to the look and the V is just the right depth so I don't have to wear something underneath...but can. And I might want to: the fabric is quite light, even a little sheer.
I went with the M instead of my usual L (because J Jill tops generally run big!), but wish I had stuck with the L. This seems to run true-to-size. Still looks great, though! It works well under ponchos and jackets as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by laleona Soft, light sweater
The sweater was lighter than I expected. However, I am accustomed to layering in winter so it's not a problem.
The merino wool is quite soft.
I love that it's machine washable! I just hope the black doesn't fade.
I ordered the Misses Small instead of Petite Small because I'm 5'3" and I wanted to make sure it hit me lower on the hip. Very glad I did. It fits perfectly.

This pairs with my jeans just as well as it goes under a suit.
A great staple across seasons here in California.
Fit true to size.
I love the rich camel color.
Bought black, as well.

Bought two of these sweaters last year (brown & black). When I took them out to wash for this winter the black one had a hole (moth?).I liked it so much I ordered another one.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Tavish Too small, had to return
I never can be sure...sometimes a L is too big, too small or perfect....like Goldilocks and the 3 bears! Sangria color was gorgeous but it was super tight and no XL left in stock, going back, sadly.

I bought this in sangria and espresso, XSP (5'2, 120lbs). This is such an excellent buy for a well-made light sweater. It will go well with so many things-I plan to pair with the side-zip ankle pants I purchased during the recent 30% off sale. I found the sweater to run a bit large, possibly due to extra length in back.
