Classic V-neck cardigan sweater

Rated 3.6 out of 5 by 68 reviewers.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Could have been great, but not as described I was excited to see this sweater--a nice profile, excellent colors, and, best of all, the online description indicates a wool/cashmere blend, suggesting that J.Crew was creating more sweaters this season without synthetic yarns that, based on my experiences in years past, typically pill and look old within a few wearings. However, when I received the sweater, it did not feel like a pure wool/cashmere blend, and it isn't. Instead, it is 55% wool, 30% nylon, and 15% cashmere (the nylon yarn is indicated in the print catalogue, but I did not receive it in the mail until several days after the new arrivals posted online). Had I known this, I would not have purchased it, and now I will have to pay to return it. Not pleased. For those of you not put off by synthetic yarn blends, the sweater is a nice length (hits just above mid-hip) and fits TTS, a bit roomy but not super slouchy. It could have used pockets (which it does not have), but that is not a dealbreaker for me; the yarn content is. September 18, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Inaccurate product description Very disappointed when I received my cardigans and found they are actually 55% wool, 30% nylon and 15% cashmere. I don't like the way this blend pills and looks worn too quickly. The colors are lovely and the fit oversized so order down for a closer fit. I was really excited about these but they aren't as expected and are going back. September 18, 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by Piling already... I really liked the style and fit of the classic cardigan....however after 6 wears of this sweater the sweater is already piling very badly under the arms and on the front. This is the second jcrew sweater I have bought that has quickly piled after a few wears. So disappointing...this sweater already looks years old and I purchased it just a month ago. October 20, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Beautiful Disapointment These sweaters are gorgeous, easily dressed up or down, and come in a perfect range of colors for every wardrobe. They are chic, simple, and timeless--everything I expect from J.Crew. Sadly, all of the above is extremely short-lived. Dry-cleaned or hand washed, these sweaters will pill immediately--across the entire garment. A sweater I wore three times looked as though I'd had it for three seasons. I was horribly disappointed to have the four sweaters I purchased barely last two months before appearing too worn to wear again. Now I'm starting anew--never to purchase these cardigans again.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Beautiful, bright ocean Last year, I bought the same sweater in a camel color and have worn it so many times…..a sweater that has become a best friend. When I saw the new colors this season, and particularly the ocean blue color, I immediately ordered it in an XXS, what I ordered last year, and XS, just in case, because the sizes of items seem to differ more often than not. The fabric content is exactly the same according to the labels on last year's sweater and this year's…..it's just the sleeves that is the issue. The XXS fit well except in the tightness of the sleeves; I had to pull the sleeves on and arrange them while the rest of the sweater fit well. I have thin arms, and the size I wore last year and ordered this year was not the same fit in the sleeves. The XS is a little larger body wise, but the fit is comfy, I can put it on without any sleeve arranging and rearranging. The colors this year are really pretty. So think about your arm size in ordering! September 18, 2015
