Product Details

You asked, we listened: We kept hearing that our cashmere was pilling too easily (because we wanted it supersoft, it was knit more loosely), so we decided to make a change... This new style has been knit more tightly, so it should pill less. The tradeoff is that it might not feel as soft at first, but just give it time. P.S. Hand-washing your cashmere is the way to go, just trust us on that.

Italian cashmere thin-striped sweater

Italian cashmere thin-striped sweater is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile sweater with unique colors! I immediately purchased this sweater after seeing the interesting stripes and colors in the design. In my experience, it fits the same as all other long-sleeve cashmere crewnecks. I'm 5'9", 132 lbs. and the hem hit me at the hips and the sleeves at my wrist. I was worried that the "muslin" colored background would be too sheer, but I was pleasantly surprised that it was not. I can wear this to work with dress pants and a multi-strand pearl necklace or scarf, or with jeans or skinny black pants and statement earrings to go out. Also - for those of you concerned about the texture of the yarn, I've found that The Laundress cashmere shampoo makes my sweaters extra soft.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fun striped cashmere! I really like this sweater and recommend it. I love stripes and thought this was a fun, new take on the same old, same old. I found this runs true to size. For me, the sizing and fit was similar to my Tippi sweaters. I wear a size medium in the Tippi and purchased this in a medium as well. The sleeves are full length, but it is worth noting the ends of the sleeve and hem of the sweater aren't finished in the same way the neckline is, so there is a slight rolling affect. That doesn't bother me, but thought it was worth noting. At 5'9 it is nice to find a sweater that has a nice length to it and covers my waist when lifting my arms. The cashmere is not as soft as some of my very high quality, more expensive sweaters, but its still soft and comfortable. In the product description, JCrew does note they are trying a tighter, not as initially soft, knit on this sweater in efforts to reduce pilling. I appreciate them listening to customers and trying to solve the pilling/quality issue.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from the stripe sweater I purchased this sweater in size L ( my size) ans it's more fitted than expected.The sweater is also shorter at my taste and reminded me the cashmere t-shirts that J Crew usually offer in fall .Its's the same length, and the same rolling edges and it's not very soft. I am 5'7'' an it's may look better on a smaller person.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful This sweater is absolutely gorgeous! My daughter-in-law has beautiful dark brown hair and gorgeous skin.. She opened the present Christmas morning and wore it everyday. 100 % cashmere and unbelievable texture and color! I would buy one for myself if I had her coloring but I am blond and fair skinned so the dark red and blues just don't work for me. This is actually the nicest sweater I have purchased at JCrew!
