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 cardigan sweater

Italian cashmere cardigan sweater is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 67614.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Arrived with the seam falling apart! I have a couple of these cardigans from about 4 years ago and loved (still do) them, but this is not the same quality at all. It's totally gone downhill. First of all, my sweater arrived with the seam on the arm cuff falling apart. When I put it on to see the sizing, it didn't fit the same. The arms are much shorter (way too short) and tighter than they used to be. The cashmere does not feel and look anything like what it was either. It used to be thick with a tighter weave and really soft. Now it's a bit thinner, looser weave and really scratchy. Not impressed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Such a disappointment! Every year I look forward to cashmere season at JCrew, this year was no exception. I ordered this cardigan as well as a cashmere V-neck. When I took the sweaters out of the box I thought I had received this sweater in a child's large rather than an adult's. I am a medium, but I prefer my sweaters a little baggy for layering. This sweater did not fit; it was so small. This sweater was also itchy and rough, I thought I bought a scratchy wool sweater instead of cashmere. Fortunately, the V-neck I purchased was the same fit and the same soft cashmere I have become accustomed to. This sweater will be going back!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Cashmere Cardigan Quality of cashmere is so poor this year. I have these sweaters from years past. The oldest look in perfect condition. The ones from recent years pill and look awful after a season. Now the one I just ordered is rough and doesn't even feel or look like cashmere. I would gladly pay more for a quality cashmere than keep the price the same and have cheap poor quality sweaters. I'm afraid I will need to find another source for my cardigans. Too bad as I like the color choices. Does cheaper have to win out?

Rated 1 out of 5 by from September 2016 - same poor imitation I have at least a dozen JCrew cashmere cardigans. One of my all time favorites collected over years. It was soft and fit well. This year's model is oddly shrunken. Who has shrunken wrists? But the big problem is the cashmere itself. It feels coarse, hard, not at all soft and cozy. This one is packed for return - I will treasure the ones I have. Whoever decided this wool was worthy of JCrew cashmere prices - I do not get it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from not the quality that it used to be I have this cardigan in various colors from diff seasons. Unfortunately, the quality is just not the same as it used to be. The Jcrew cashmere I've bought in the recent years pilling after 1-2 dry cleanings. The seams esp at the arm holes don't hold up, my dry cleaner repairs mine. And the buttons break, they crack in half. Its disappointing, but be prepared to replace your sweater every year, they don't last anymore.
