"A go to favorite sweater"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Several years ago I purchases this same sweater in the pink colors. I wear it often and get lots of compliments. It has held up very well with gentle, cool water machine washing and drying on a hanger. I love it so much I just purchased a new one in the turquoise colors. Wore it skiing today and again got lots of compliments. It is thin enough to layer well but also warm enough to wear alone. I purchased a size large. I am 5?7 and 140# with fairly broad shoulders and longer arms. Fits perfect. Beautifully made sweater!

Bought this for my last ski trip and it became my favorite piece of clothing on that trip. Super warm, super comfortable, and then after a long day of skiing... it also looked great at dinner. LOVE IT. So well made.

"Love this Cardigan!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This cardigan is simply beautiful! The vibrant colours and design is breathtaking. I do not believe the picture does it justice. I?m tall and thin and often have a hard time finding sweaters long enough in the sleeve but this cardigan was perfect. The craftsmanship is top notch. Well made indeed! I will definitely be taking it on my hiking tour through Portugal.
