Rated 4 out of 5 by sek11 Lovely Sweater, Runs Small
I was so excited when I saw this sweater on the new arrivals page! I love fair isle, and I was especially pleased to see the gray colorway because I knew it would pair well with a chambray shirt and my bright green J.Crew puffer vest. However, I have had to order 3 different sizes in this sweater to find the right fit, and I'm still not sure about what size to keep. Over 90% of the time, I wear an XS in J.Crew sweaters. I like my sweaters fitted, but not tight. I couldn't even pull the XS on all the way--talk about a surprise! The Small is almost too tight, but the Medium is almost too loose. I'll probably keep the Medium because it won't look too big with my puffer vest whereas the Small looks tight in the arms. For reference, I am 5'5", 34B, and almost always wear a size 4. The quality is superb and the gray colorway is exactly as it appears online. If you can find the right size, I would recommend.

Rated 4 out of 5 by kk277 Lovely Heavier Weight Tippi but slightly scratchy
I'm not sure why people are saying this runs small. It runs completely true to size unlike other vanity-sized jcrew items or sweaters that are supposed to have a boxy fit. For reference, I am 5'6', 36C, 150 and can wear both small or medium Tippi's. I will say that with the woven-nature of this sweater, it does not have the stretch that the other Tippi's do, so maybe that's it. It's definitely thicker which is great for cooler days. It's slightly scratchy compared to other Tippi's, that's why I graded it down a star. It's just dressy enough for me to get away with at work with dress pants or a skirt. I do recommend unless you have a skin sensitivity to wool, then I would recommend passing on this one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CrazyDogAndCatLady Beautiful sweater but runs small
Love this sweater. First, I'm thankful it's 100% merino because I hate the various blend fabrics that I think just look cheap. I'm happy to pay for a 100% natural and higher quality yarn. The grey/green is exactly as pictured and beautiful. I love it. My only warning is that I agree with the other reviewer -this sweater runs small. I don't like tight or even fitted sweaters for that matter. I'm normally a size large (sometimes even a medium on looser fit sweaters), and it was skin-tight. I kept the XL and it's loose enough for my liking. I'd say definitely size up.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Sand Pretty sweater Runs Small
I love this sweater. Both of the color choices are very pretty. The sweater is softer than many of the sweaters offered this season. However, be aware that these sweaters do run small. I normally take an x-small. If it's a relaxed fit, I might even take an xx-small. I needed a small in this sweater. It is fitted, so if you don't want a fitted sweater you need to size up even more.
