Rated 5 out of 5 by FleurdeLys Perfect (almost) cardigan
I own several cotton Jackies and love them so had to order these. And they don't disappoint!! Bought them in black, navy and warm sepia (more of a beautiful rust color than on the website) yesterday and already wore the black one last night when we had dinner in an overly AC-ed restaurant.
I love the lightweight merino wool (14 gauge, just like the Tippi sweaters). Wool also has the advantage of the color not fading like cotton will inevitable do. I love that grosgrain ribbon is used which will ensure it will keep its shape (which is why I chose the Jackie over the Tilly). I love that I can and will wear this year round.
The cardigan would have been absoloutely perfect had the buttons not been gold. I was expecting them to be the same color as the cardi, just like on the cotton Jackies. However, I'll just have them changed, so not really an issue.
Runs small, just like the cotton Jackie, so I sized up.

Rated 2 out of 5 by SylBK My cardi's size must have been mis-labeled
I received this cardigan in x-small navy for Christmas and love it, so was excited to see when the other colors went on sale. I ordered the marled azalea which is gorgeous, but the x-small I received is MUCH smaller than expected. When I put it up against my navy one, the sleeves are a full inch shorter, the arms are narrower in circumference, and the body is narrower too. It truly must be xx-small that got an x-small label. So now I'm stuck with it since it's final sale. JCrew, you are my favorite retailer, but the final sale policy on items with such inconsistent sizing is killing me.... Buyer Beware!

I had high hopes for the new wool Jackie. When I opened my package from J. Crew today, I thought that they had shipped me the wrong items. The buttons on these cardigans are gold -- hard to discern in the pictures -- and the material is also VERY lightweight. Already returned.

Pretty sweater, but the gold buttons didn't work for me....

Rated 3 out of 5 by BusyVP too itchy to keep
Cardigan - Fit is as expected with full length arms. Buttons lovely and a great Camel color (no green ting) BUT - it's so scratchy I could not wait to get of. Might benefit from a wash in softening soap. I am not willing to risk it so returning,
Very sad - love the color - PERFECT CAMEL color. IF you can stand the itch - these are lovely. Though lightweight - it was not see through.
