Rated 5 out of 5 by jycinnyc All season cardigan
The merino wool is super soft, fine and flat, not itchy at all. The cardigan drapes nicely, I like that it's a little longer the most (covers my tush). If I could change anything, I would make the sleeves less fitted. You can't really wear anything but sleeveless or skin tight tops underneath.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Lovetoshop Great, but not the same as before
This sweater used to have the prettiest clear "crystal" buttons. Now they are plain plastic ones. Was a little sad to see that. With that said, I love this light weight sweater. It keeps me warm in the office indoors or in the early evening when it's cool outdoors. Great that it's not scratchy though it's wool.

I have a black J. Crew merino cardigan that is 7 years old, but it has never pilled-- the fabric is as smooth as it was when it was brand-new! Successive versions of this cardigan do not hold up. My oatmeal colored one has pilled so much, after only a few months, that I question whether I can continue to wear it to work! Very disappointing and not up to the quality I expect from J. Crew.

Rated 4 out of 5 by ladyE why the pockets?!?
I love this cardigan and have it in multiple colors… I just don't understand the current trend for unflattering pockets on all the cardigans lately. They add bulk where we mostly don't need it and aren't usable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by KRS212 I like jcrew's long sweaters but...
This sweater, while perfectly fine does not equal their Infinity sweater from a few years ago. I loved this sweater (have 4 of them) and wish they would reissue this - I'd buy one in every color (and more than one in black!)

Rated 3 out of 5 by Coco boxy styling, compromised quality
length and classic cardigan styling consistent with J Crew design of this piece in previous seasons, but cut is slightly boxier through the middle, and quality/weight of merino has deteriorated. I wish I had sized down and that J Crew wasn't compromising on product, but it still is a good classic piece at an affordable price, so I didn't return it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by OnlineShoppingAddict light weight boyfriend cardigan
i loved this style so much i ordered it in 4 different colors, i was pleased that its a thinner weight wool making it a nice transitional piece for fall and into winter. HOWEVER, i was extremely disappointed to see after wearing my gray cardigan only once a hole forming along the seam. It appears the quality is not what i was hoping :(

After wearing four times the sweater sleeves and front are pilled as if I'm wearing some old and cheap sweater.

Rated 2 out of 5 by imbachick Please bring back the regular length v-neck!
Ugh - Jcrew, please, please, PLEASE bring back to the regular length V-neck merino cardigan! This one is way too long - it comes down to mid thigh on us shorter girls. I keep trying this style, hoping maybe this time it will fit differently. This style is not flattering on me at all, which is disappointing because I love your merino wool and the colours this season are fantastic. I have one of the regular length ones from years ago and I love it - I wear it all the time. It's been at least five years and I keep waiting for that style to come back so I can buy one in every single colour...... So, pretty please, with sugar on top?

I now own this cardigan in three colors. Would it be weird if I bought one in every color? This cardigan is that perfect. A bit oversized for a nice slouchy fit. The knit is fine so treat this well. Great for work.

This is a very versatile and wearable cardigan, made with high quality. True to size. Just wish JCrew made it in a more varied palette of colors!

I love the merino long cardigans. I wear this sweater mostly three months out of the year and I have several colors. They are all great. Great when you can order on sale.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kate A timeless classic
Thank you JCrew for providing this timeless classic. It is maddening that so many cardigans out there have no buttons and contain acrylic which pills the first time you wear it. If you are tired of disposable clothing this is for you.

I now own this cardigan in four colors and can't wait to add to my collection. I wear one to the office on an almost daily basis. It is very lightweight and holds off the chill of the air conditioner perfectly without making me too warm. I purchased my first one over three years ago and it is still in perfect condition. These sweaters do not pill! I am 5'2 and 160 pounds and wear a size small in this sweater. Therefore, I believe they run slightly large.

Great sweater! The length of the arms are great, very comfortable. I picked the Safari color because it was unique and rich- love it! The quality and style are perfect. Thank you J.Crew for designing clothes that fit tall women, like me, who have trouble finding a good fit.

I just purchased my third long, merino wool cardigan. This season I bought it in green - a wonderfully subtle new hue that works with so much in my wardrobe. It's soft, lightweight and a classy classic - great over a tank top on warmish days and light enough to wear under blazers. I'm so pleased with it and would recommend it to anyone.

Great sweater - very versatile and great quality. If you are between sizes, then go down a size. I wear a 2/4 in dresses and blouses and the XS fits me best (i typically wear it unbuttoned with dresses, blouses, or tanks underneath). I have it in 6 colors since i can wear to work and casual and pretty much year round.

Rated 5 out of 5 by cecc Beautiful sweater
I own the sweater in a discontinued brown camel color, navy, and heather gray. Size medium, 5'5" 140lb 34D for reference. Medium fits great, not too snug but not baggy either. Perfect for chilly work places and looks equally nice with casual jeans or dressy pencil skirts. Length falls right past butt level, which is nice if you want some extra coverage and has a slimming effect. Pills a little.

I bought basic black, in my regular size medium and am happy for the most part. A relaxed fit, nice fitted shape on shoulder line with arms not too tight and good length over the tush (I'm 5'9", so could be even longer on others). Not as happy with the 14 gauge merino wool. This is a very fine, lightweight knit and it just isn't going to hold up well to cleaning and wear. I know it's for spring, but 12 gauge would have been a better choice in my opinion.

Really like this cardigan. It is a great staple for my wardrobe. The quality is also very good, much better than other store brands I have purchased. I have already recommended it to friends.

Rated 3 out of 5 by LibertyRed Soft layering piece but shapeless
I bought two of these sweaters, one grey and one in dark red. The colors and texture are lovely and they go nicely over a blouse. I don't like them as much as the previous incarnation of this sweater, which was very slimming even over a blouse. This newer version has square pockets, whereas the older version had the pockets hidden in the diagonal. The new square pockets tend to pooch out a bit and look a bit sloppy. Also the shape of the sweater itself is a bit too square and shapeless, and doesn't give the slimming effect the previous version did. Overall, I still like it, and find myself wearing these often.

Rated 3 out of 5 by ocgap Not the same
I recently got this cardigan in Sea Grass. The color is really lovely but the quality of the merino is so different. I kept touching it when it first came because it feel so much lighter and almost cottony. I have these cardigans from previous years and there is definitely a difference in the quality of the wool. I really love the long style cardigans and have many colors but I'm not sure how long this will last in the long run and if its real wool.

Very simple and basic, but very nice, stylish and cosy cardigan. You can use it in summer time with shorts on the beach for the night walk or with pants for a business dinner.
