Rated 5 out of 5┬áby Snger123 Large fur collar
I grabbed this sweater as well as another furred-collar sweater to compare and contrast. This striped cardi is richly thick and I appreciate the smooth line of the zipper (as opposed to buttons). The small size worked well for me, since I tend to layer cardis with sleeveless tops underneath. If, however, I wanted to wear long sleeves under this sweater, I would need to size it up. (For reference, I am 5'8" 135 lbs, 34-B). The reason I didn't bring this sturdy sweater home, however, was the collar. On me, it was much plumper and furrier than the photo above, and seemed to evoked images of snow people from the Great North.

I ordered this expecting to return it but I'm so glad I ordered it as I'll be keeping it! The faux fur collar is unbelievably soft and cozy. I'm not a fur person, faux or otherwise, but the softness of it sold me. The collar is actually more substantial looking in-person than it does in the picture online. The sleeves are too long for me but I have short arms and am only 4'10.5". It is cut bigger than a normal XS sweater as it is meant to be a sweater jacket; because of the fur collar, I don't see myself wearing this piece as a regular indoor sweater. It is 70% wool and I was pretty impressed with how soft the knit is; it's not itchy at all. The colors are exactly as it looks online.

Try to get over the orange color in this mix. I am guessing that that is what is holding up sales of this sweater at it's reduce (remarkably inexpensive) price, in this post fall time period. This is a fabulous piece, given to me by my husband as a Christmas gift. He thought the fur on this sweater was real! It truly is the most "real" fake fur I've ever seen or felt! I wear this sweater all of the time. The navy blue running through the knit is lovely and distinctive. The extra small fits my 100# petite frame very well.
