Rated 2 out of 5 by luvnatural Love it, Hate it
This is one of those Love it Hate it Items. Love the fit (am usually an xs/2 and that's what I ordered), nice and loose/ slouchy without being too oversized. The olive moss color is lovely as well, not as dark as pictured on my screen. However the quality is horrible. Just after the first wear it pills excessively as only cheap fibers do. Just because something is cashmere does not mean it is quality. It has a lot to do with the staple length of the actual fibers. Longer fibers mean no pilling, shorter ones =pilling. I have been buying cashmere from J Crew for over a decade and never had this problem until more recently. This garment does not deserve to be part of the "Collection".

Rated 2 out of 5 by Molly Typical JCrew cashmere
I have not been pleased with J.Crew's cashmere for quite some time. I agree that their cashmere pills and bags, because the quality long fibers are not being used. It may come from Italy, but only the short fibers are used which causes pilling and the fuzzy look to the sweater after hand washed with their Laundress soap. The colors are gorgeous, but until the quality drastically improves, I will not purchase any more cashmere from them.
